The Pet Industry's Leading Resource for News & Content Distribution

WARWICK, R.I. (August 5, 2014) – Founded as a journalism organization to encourage professionalism among cat writers, photographers, artists and broadcasters, Cat Writers’ Association (CWA) is extending exclusive benefits to members and sponsors at this year’s BarkWorld/MeowWorld conference.

For the very first time, Cat Writers’ Association (CWA) is partnering with the BarkWorld Pet Expo and Social Networking Conference to present the BarkWorld/MeowWorld 2014 Conference, held October 30 through November 1 at the Westin Buckhead in Atlanta. CWA is presenting the MeowWorld portion of the joint conference and registration provides admission to both conferences.

This year, CWA members will receive priority in the assignment of editor appointments, a CWA-exclusive icebreaker and free admittance to the awards banquet. Conference and CWA sponsors will receive promotion via exhibit booths, recognition in printed and online materials, placement of materials in swag bags and opportunities to place their brand in front of hundreds of bloggers and writers.

Dr. Lorie Huston, certified veterinary journalist and president of CWA, values Association members and sponsors of the BarkWorld/MeowWorld 2014 Conference.

“For CWA members, the conference provides an unparalleled opportunity to network with others with similar goals and passions, including many of the most well-established professionals in the field,” Huston said. “All conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn and grow, but CWA members also have priority access to one-on-one meetings with editors, publishers, and agents, an exclusive opportunity to attend a meet and greet gathering open only to CWA members, plus an invitation to attend the CWA Awards Banquet–the culminating gala event of the entire conference. For sponsors, we offer the opportunity to place their products or services directly in front of hundreds of bloggers, writers, publishers, authors and others within the pet industry. These are the people that use and have the ability to successfully promote pet products and services of all types. Sponsorship provides an exceptional chance for brands to connect and collaborate with these people, providing a benefit to both parties.”

Members of the CWA help contribute to the appreciation and welfare of all cats by providing accurate news, information and education on all aspects of felines, their nature, health, care and lore. For more information or to apply to become a CWA member, please visit
