- The Barkleigh Honors Awards Ceremony
Beginning at 7:00pm
Barkleigh Productions and Groomer to Groomer magazine are excited to present the second annual Barkleigh Honors Awards. The first year was an overwhelming success with thousands of votes cast by groomers for groomers. These are the grooming industry’s most extensive awards. Blog, Website, Speaker, and New Grooming Product of the Year are just a few of the categories that give the Barkleigh Honors a cutting-edge feel.
“Our goal is to recognize the groomers that go above and beyond in their contributions to our industry,” explains Barkleigh president Todd Shelly. “All awards must be substantiated and will not be determined by popularity alone. However, there will be some categories where the top four or five finalists, and ultimately the winner, will be determined by popular vote. Other categories, like Competitor of the Year, will be determined by a point system. This will keep things fun and fresh.”
Preceding the Awards will be the elegant Abstract Creative Runway competition. A special lighted catwalk will be constructed for this first-time Groom Expo event.
Dinner tickets must be purchased to attend the Barkleigh Honors Awards and Abstract Creative Runway event unless you have a Deluxe or VIP seminar package.
