About Us

Knowing that most pet product brands only have the time and budget for one media trip to New York each year, Petrend Events brings the press directly to you for the day! Petrend Events media showcases connect pet product companies with national magazines, talks show producers, newspaper reporters, bloggers, pet trades, entertainment writers and gift guide editors who write on-going, pet product stories. 

Charlotte Reed

With approximately 20 years of experience in the pet industry, Petrend Events was founded and produced by Petrendologist Charlotte Reed.  Petrend Events media showcases are the perfect venue to launch a new pet product, expand your regional media outreach or simply connect with national mainstream media who cover the pet space.  Petrend Events media events are invitation-only and not open to the general public.
