  • U.S. Pet Pro Classic on the Set of "Dallas" in 2007

    Early word is that this year's U.S. Pet Pro Classic will be their 20th Anniversary and will take place Nov. 8-11 at the Southfork Hotel and Ranch, home of the famous TV series Dallas. As many have learned they really really focus on educational programs for which the ISCC is well known, and reasonable pricing. More info to come as the year progresses.

    Wow, how did I miss this thread? I am so excited, I have saved my tips for 3 months so far (though I just paid for the Melissa Verplank Seminar), and I will keep saving until I make it to the Pet Pro Classic!!! SO EXCITED! And what a fun place to have it at! I hope it's not too far from the airport!

      That's why I'm so excited: 20th anniversary = GOOD DEALS I HOPE!!! I'm saving and saving and saving my tips. Black tie dinner? Oh, I'll be bummed without my hubby there. You'll have to be my date, I'll be the one in the pink dress, so make sure your tie and cumber bun match (or whatever that crumb catcher thing is called). Now where is that "raspberry" emoticon when I need it?

      Serously, I'm very excited for this! I'm going to register as an ISCC member at their show special price, too, maybe pick up a Groom Bus. in a BOX there as well. KEEP US POSTED ON INFORMATION AS YOU HEAR IT, STEPHEN!!!

          Awesome rates!!!!!

          Went to, looked at tickets plus hotel for 3 nights round trip from San Jose, CA to Dallas Fort Worth, plus 3 nights at South Fork hotel = $353/ person! That is a savings over the special rate advertised for the event, and it is for a King bed! Just thought I would share. I may be able to swing this after all!! I would have to rent a car, of course, so another $60, but I would do that anyway. I am excited to go to a show. I won't have enough saved by September for the Vegas show even though it is closer.
          I was looking at the registration forms, and was thinking about just getting a one day package and then 2 trade show days, but where do I find out what seminar are offered when? Is the deluxe package really worth it? then it will be almost $700 for everything. Hmmm, please share your input everyone!

            Yes, the entire show is well worth it! I go every year and have for a number of years now. I learn more at this show than at any other show I attend---every year!! Hope to see you there!!!!!!
