The BlogPaws 2014 Conference is over, but the media is still buzzing and will continue to do so. This was one of our most successful conferences to date, and we thank all attendees, speakers, staff, event planners, executive team, and especially our sponsors, without whom the conference could not happen.

One of the highlights of the conference was the press conference that took place on Thursday afternoon, May 8th. In the event you missed it, here’s a recap of what took place, what we announced, and then some media coverage and a very special video recap of the entire 2014 extravaganza in Vegas.

Carol Bryant opened the press conference and welcomed all attendees. Highlights of the announcements included Pawject Runway, Meet the Rescues, HABRI keynote speakers, and the red carpet Nose-to-Nose red carpet BlogPaws Pet Blogging and Social Media awards.
