Last Wednesday, on May 3rd, Magic 13 Brewing opened its doors to pet business owners and entrepreneurs from the pet industry in Miami.
It was an amazing evening that began with a warm welcome from the CEO, followed by a panel discussion with Carlos Barrera, Sales Manager of Doggy Ice Pops, and professional dog behaviorist Glenda Galeano. They shared insights on the latest trends and statistics about the pet industry and how they are preparing for 2023. Patricia ValdeRuten moderated the panel, and it was a great opportunity to learn from their experiences
After the panel, each attendee had the opportunity to introduce themselves and their companies, which was both interesting and inspiring. It was great to see the variety of services and products available for our pets.
The Petworking meet-up was magic! We were fortunate to have a diverse group of pet industry entrepreneurs attending the event, showcasing their products and services. From pet fashion companies such as Gueyita Mexicana, My Cool Dog, and Pawies, to organic food and treats from Doggy Ice Pops, Chef Wuau, and Miramar Rigo's Meal. The event also featured pet care providers such as trainers Brian Galea and Glenda Galeano, daycare and boarding from Dog Kingdom, and specialized services from Howling Om, Furrysclusive, and Your Pawz are my Pawz. Lorena Cora offered pet photography services, and 1One World presented their CBD line of products.
The GP Consulting, The Pet Blue and Gracia Lab offered their services in business advisory, graphic design and websites and software developments respectively.
Chef Wuau was recognized for their outstanding dedication to excellence and commitment to achieving success in their business with hardwork, persistence, and innovation.
Following the introductions, everyone enjoyed drinks and the cool vibe of Magic 13 Brewing, mingling and getting to know each other. The evening was filled with new connections, friendships, and undoubtedly, new business opportunities.
