On the 29th & 30th June 2019, staff from Oz-Pet attended the Carrara Cat Carnival held at Carrara markets Gold Coast, our mill manager Dom Serone took the reigns and began his journey into manning our booth for the first time. The show attracted many people looking at the various cat items available and the biggest hit was being able to to pet a cat, there seemed to be a line-up on both days to do this. Many cats were up for adoption and quite a few were adopted that day.
Dom was busy handing out Oz-Pet sample bags and also he had quite a few items purchased, Dom soon learnt how to use an Eftpos machine the first day. I popped in for a few hours to see what the Carrara Cat Carnival was about, and I was kept busy talking to people about Oz-Pet, giving sample bags out, demonstrating how our system works, why it is economical and if using our 2 piece sieve tray set was even more economical.
On the same weekend, the Gold Coast Pet Expo was held and Oz-Pet set up a booth which was manned by mill foreman Daryll Magarry and myself. Both days we were kept busy demonstrating our Oz-Pet litter and showing how our plastic accessories worked with our products. We handed out hundreds of sample bags and sold quite a few products.
There were many interesting exhibits at the show, which sold various items for cats, dogs, birds, reptiles. There were also some Rescue associations that were there to fund their efforts in rescuing animals in distress. The show also had the RSPCA adoption centre, which had many different types of cats and dogs up for adoption and they were very pleased with the adoption rate. This expo allowed owners of dogs on leads to bring them to the show and walk around looking at the exhibits, there were so many different breeds of dogs walking around and we never heard any of them growl at each other!
