BlogPaws is (was?) an event for bloggers who focus on the pet industry. I went several years ago when it was in Denver and found it pretty interesting. About 300 writers, compelling speakers, a small tradeshow and a few dozen dogs and cats wandering around a hotel convention center.
Figuring it was time to catch up on the pet blogging industry, I went online to register for the next event and found …. nothing.
The Blogpaws website looks like it hasn’t been updated in over a year. The last conference was in April of 2018; no mention of a 2019 or 2020 conference. Searched to see if I could find any statement that it was cancelled or postponed – can’t locate anything.
Looks like BlogPaws is owned by Pet360, which was bought by PetSmart. Maybe the conference is too small for PetSmart to get excited about.
Anyway, if you have any info on what happened to BlogPaws, please let me know.
June 2020 Update: BlogPaws is no more. The conference changed ownership a few times, selling to Pet360, then to PetSmart, then to Chewy, then back to co-founder Chloe DiVita. DiVita then changed it to an online pet community called All Pet Voices. Here is a video of the founders reminiscing about the history of the event.
