We Love What We Do and It Shows!
We are a woman-owned business as well as a mother/daughter team. Our talented group of marketers at Marketplace Media has event and business expertise with over 30 years of hands on experience in advertising and marketing. We produce Pet Fest, the Women’s Fair and previously, Rock Against Racism. Community and giving back are important to us a company. We incorporate a charitable component into all of our events because we think it’s vital to have a positive impact in our community!
Our events bring people together for a mutually beneficial purpose.
As a company, it’s our mission to provide supportive opportunities for small businesses, entrepreneurial endeavors and companies large and small. We want to provide an entertaining value to attendees and make a positive impact in the community. We spend much time considering the different perspectives of the attendees, the vendors and sponsors. With this in mind, we create a community within our events.
Launched in 2006, Pet Fest is well known for the Wiener Dog Dash that attracts thousands to watch dozens of tiny wiener dogs racing for prizes and glory to round off the end of Pet Fest. If you’ve never attended the Wiener Dog Dash, get ready to have your heart melt from the sheer cuteness of it all!
Attendees experience events designed to be interactive, entertaining and fun. Pet lovers are able to discover new products, information and ideas. Our goal is to provide value and entertainment for all. Whiskers twitch, tails thump and paws knead in the Pet Fest Adoption Row. The one constant with all of these adoptable darlings is that they are looking for a forever home with a loving companion. Each year Pet Fest is proud to be a part of this process. With the help of the tireless volunteers who give their time and energy to find homes for these homeless pets we hope to be more successful each year in our quest to further the human animal bond. Looking for a loving companion? Here’s a great place to start.

Attendees are invited to visit the Health and Wellness Fair at the Hilton Garden Inn on North Reserve where they check out exhibitors offering ways to balance and restore the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual areas of their lives through fitness, healthy nutrition and new self-care techniques. Free and low fee wellness screenings will be offered by local hospitals and clinics. In support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, the Fair will also offer free, private breast exams.

Sponsors maximize the personal marketing aspect of the Health and Wellness Fair, Pet Fest and the Women’s Fair with their higher profile role. In addition to the personal marketing opportunities of having a booth at the event, attendees regard a sponsor as a “host” for a memorable experience. These in-depth and interpersonal marketing occasions are exceptional. The value added opportunities a sponsor enjoys create a lasting impression and strengthens their long-term relationship with the audience.
