Hagen Fetes Pet Retailers At 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Celebration And Canadian National Trade Show
OTTAWA, Ontario– (For Immediate Release) — More than 50 American pet retailers — and many more from Canada and around the world – gathered for two days in late summer in the picturesque town of Gatineau, Quebec to enjoy a special kind of holiday. This exclusive mini-vacation treated guests to fine food, drinks and a breathtaking venue at the Hilton Lac Leamy located on the scenic shores of Leamy Lake. These retailers were the lucky attendees of the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp.’s Canadian National Trade Show and 60th Anniversary Diamond Jubilee Celebration!
The company gifted this luxurious two-day, fun-filled retreat to pet retailers across Canada, the US and 23 other countries who won Hagen’s Diamond Jubilee Contest held earlier this year.
At Hagen’s Canadian Trade Show, dealers were introduced to new products from All For Paws, ZEUS, New Tropican and TropiMix, FLUVAL LED and prototype EDGE tanks, to name a few! One of the most talked about products came from Nutrience Sub Zero (a brand not yet available in the US), a 100% grain free dog food with the addition of raw protein for superior nutrition and a flavor canines crave.
Dealers also attended seminars with helpful topics to go along with Hagen’s new products on Bird Care, Aquatics, Reptile Care and more. A special seminar on the new Hagen Dealer Portal hosted a full audience – It introduced the online portal which allows retailers to view specials, new items, place orders and see order history to name a few.
The Trade Show took place just a few minutes outside of Ottawa, so many American dealers also enjoyed an afternoon touring Canada’s capital city. The city holds many historic sites, like the Rideau Canal and Ottawa Locks, the National Gallery of Canada and the Peace Tower.
Later that day nearly 1000 guests were treated to a Gala Dinner – greeted upon entry by an ice statue in the shape of the number 60 (for Hagen’s 60th anniversary). The night of celebration included a great meal and an open bar along with beautiful sea-side views. The evening culminated with a banquet and a speech From the President and CEO Rolf Hagen Jr., including a tribute video to the late Chairman Rolf C Hagen that ended with a standing ovation from the entire room.
Rolf Hagen Jr. thanked the attendees for their 60 years of support. “Our Diamond Jubilee was a stunning success,” Hagen said. “Our guests traveled from near and very far away. It was an honor to celebrate such an important benchmark with friends and colleagues who have supported our business, getting us to where we are today.”
