We had a fantastic experience exhibiting at PATS, where we were able to showcase our products. PATS provides us with an excellent platform to connect with industry professionals, gain valuable market insights, and establish relationships, making it a truly successful and rewarding experience.

The New Starter Zone had a serious buzz about it. We had a lot of interest, keeping us busy on both days of the show. It was perfect for a new business starting out.

I think the show is important to the industry as it gives people the chance to talk face to face. I loved the New Starter Zone

As a Dutch-based supplier of live, frozen and dried fish food, aquarium plants and water treatments to UK retail outlets, public aquaria and zoos, I am thrilled to hear that PATS is introducing a dedicated aquatics section into its trade show. The fusion of pets and aquatics under one roof promises a great three-day event.
