2019 aPaws Convention

Date: 5/20/2019

It's that time of the year again where professional pooper scoopers from around the country will gather together for a weekend of fun, learning and the Turd Herding contest. We'll be meeting on the white sandy beaches of Sarasota, Florida at the Sandcastle at Lido Beach Resort from Oct 4th - 6th. We'll be having hands on workshops geared toward the scooping professionals to help them run and grow their business. The topics that will be covered range from marketing to route planning and bookkeeping to Q&A on the pooper scooper industry. 

We'll meet Friday night for an informal open forum where the beginners and the pros can exchange ideas on the best methods used to grow their business. This meet and greet will be sponsored by aPaws and we hope to feed you intellectually and physically with awesome hors d'oeuvres provided by aPaws. 

Saturday will be chock full of practical training to help you run and grow your business. We'll be focusing on marketing in this digital age, back office operations and a special presentation from Ogy Nikolic who is developing the only app specifically for pooper scoopers. More details to follow. 

Registration will start next week and if you reserve your room by June 30th, you will receive $20.00 off the registration fee. Book soon as we only have a limited number of rooms available at the group rate of $129 per night. 

Happy Scooping!
