The World Pet Association is over 70 years old and has hosted their annual Super Zoo pet convention here in Las Vegas for the last 18 years (excluding the pandemic shutdown of 2020). This year marked my first time as their official DJ.

Last week’s 3-day event held at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center was yet another successful event at or above  pre-pandemic numbers, according to SVP of Events Mike KarstingSuper Zoo 2022 showcased over 900 debut products, over 1,000 exhibitors, over 2 million pounds of pet productis, and over 330,000 square feet of exhibits.

I had the pleasure of welcoming attendees each morning between 8am-10am inside the convention center hall with a fun uptempo mix of music and free cups of coffee to get their day started. I personally had a blast each day getting to interact with so many people in person and their beloved pets.

WPA President Vic Mason and their Board of Directors hosted a Super Zoo Beach Party for VIP’s and registered guests on the second night of the convention. The evening kicked off at 7pm with a one-hour DJ set by PICAZZO (hey, that’s me!) followed by two straight hours of nostalgic fun with live music from 80’s cover band Boogie Knights.

Thank you to everyone who took a moment to stop by the DJ booth to say hello, take a picture, or let me pet their pets. I could not have asked for a better group of people to spend 3 days with than you fellow animal lovers. Here are some of my favorite pictures I snapped walking around Super Zoo 2022. Enjoy!
