"For the first time in the history of professional grooming, Barkleigh Productions will produce LIVE continuous coverage of activity at the grooming contest and trade show at our upcoming PetQuest and groom Expo,” says Barkleigh President, Todd Shelly. We have been beta testing it for the past couple shows and it has done very well with a small number of groomers enjoying the coverage.
Plans are underway to have professional services that will utilize two to three fixed cameras on the contest, one close-up camera and an interview area.
"We plan to talk to contestants right after their wins, as well as speakers, sponsors, and attendees. Industry commercials will be included so groomers will have an opportunity to buy some of the things that are offered as show specials through the net,” said Shelly. “And Sally Liddick will be moderating PetQuest.
There is a lot of enjoyment and emotion at a grooming contest, and so many groomers across the world do not have the opportunity to attend, says Barkleigh CEO, Sally Liddick. “One of the things I enjoyed was our beta testing of the show. Groomers who view it have an opportunity to comment and chat while the events are going on . It is kind of like a bunch of friends getting together to watch TV . This will bring our events up close and personal in a different way than ever before.
