Professional Grooming Rally

  Where creativity meets education!


The Professional Grooming Rally, produced by the NAPCG, has outgrown its previous venue, so we are excited to announce that PGR 2016 will be held at the North Carolina State Fairgrounds in Raleigh, North Carolina on June 25th through the 27th! 

Although our venue has changed, the focus of PGR will remain on quality education – particularly those areas of education often overlooked at many other grooming events, including topics that extend beyond simply knowing how to perform a groom, such as salon sanitation, canine behavior, and equipment maintenance. Thus, our educational forum will offer attendees unique, quality lectures along with numerous competitions, some of which have the option to double as practical examinations for the NAPCG’s Advanced Certified Groomer Program.

Be sure to like us on FB and check back often for more details! 


Seminars from industry-leading speakers will cover a variety of topics, including cat grooming, creative grooming, business topics, and more! Between lectures, catch demonstrations in the trade show, spectate competitions, and enjoy shopping with our sponsors and vendors. 


PGR 2016 competitions will include: 


PGR offers one of the most economical vendor packages in the industry - a 10 x 10 booth is merely $450! Don't be swindled by surcharges and extras. Our booths include electricity, internet, pipe, drape, a covered table, two chairs, and a sign with your company name at no additional charge to you!
