BioLargo, Inc. (OTCBB: BLGO) announces today that its wholly owned subsidiary Odor-No-More, Inc., in concert with The E.T. Horn Co., will be the marquee sponsor for the return of an equine presence at America’s Family Pet Expo, the largest consumer pet and pet product expo in the world held each spring in Southern California. In addition to a large presence with multiple booths and appearances by “Mini Cooper,” the official spokes-horse for Odor-No-More, the two companies have donated multiple booth spaces to equine rescue resource foundations and have sponsored the “Odor-No-More Arena,” where exhibitions will take place, including Lukas, the World’s Smartest Horse, Painted Ladies Rodeo Riders, Valley View Vaulters, Cal Poly Arabian Horses, All American Mule & Donkey Group, Meet “Seabiscuit” and Friesian Fantasia, and Meet the Knights and Ladies of the Realm.
“We are honored to be sponsoring the Odor-No-More arena at this year’s expo. We first launched with our equine line and now offer a product for just about any pet,” states Joe Provenzano, Odor-No-More, Inc. President. ”America’s Pet Expo is a great opportunity to expand our brand awareness.”
America’s Family Pet Expo, which will be held April 16 – 18, 2010 at the Orange County Fair and Event Center in Costa Mesa, California, is produced by the World Pet Association, the oldest pet industry trade association. It is the largest pet expo in the country and record-breaking crowds are expected this year. This will be the first time in several years that an equine presence will be part of the pet expo.
“We have been considering equine participation for years, and when Odor-No-More, Inc. and The E.T. Horn Co. agreed to take the lead role to include sponsoring the arena, we knew it would be a great success,” stated Doug Poindexter, President of the World Pet Association. ”The equine area allows the public, especially children, to interact with horses and learn ways to become more involved with the breed.”
