Regulations concerning Livestock on Stands at PATS 2024

Please ensure you read the following information carefully before submitting your Form.  All forms must be submitted as soon as possible to the Organisers, for approval by the Venue, and no later than the deadline date on this form.

a)         Livestock/Animals shall at all times be kept in suitable accommodation (i.e. size, cleanliness, ventilation, lighting, temperature) in line with the Animal Welfare Act 2006 and any relevant and subsequent legislation.

b)         Livestock/Animals being exhibited outside of a cage/enclosure must be suitably controlled or adequately tethered AT ALL TIMES to ensure the safety of visitors and staff.

            Dogs should be kept on leads and can be exercised outside of the venue.  Removal of waste is the responsibility of the exhibitor.

c)         Only the exhibitor or an authorised member of their staff will be permitted to remove animals from their enclosures.

d)         If the stand is left unattended, exhibitors must ensure that all livestock/animals are properly contained. 
In the case of these being left overnight on the stand adequate provisions must be made to ensure the welfare of livestock/animals and a 24hr contact number MUST be supplied on this Form.

e)         No selling of livestock/animals, such as birds or fish, will be permitted within the exhibition hall either during or after the exhibition.

f)          Any livestock/animals deemed to be potentially dangerous shall be effectively guarded to prevent injury to others and this safety must be maintained throughout.  In some instances a keeper may need to be present at all times – please contact the Organisers if this is applicable to your stand.

g)         It is the responsibility of the Exhibitor to ensure they have taken out adequate insurance on their stand to cover any livestock/pets brought on-site.

h)         Any dogs being kept on exhibitor’s stands MUST have an official pass.  These are sent out on receipt of this form two weeks before the show.  The pass can be looped around their collar.

i)          All livestock MUST be removed at breakdown.  There will be 30 minutes after the close of the show on Tuesday 1st October before the halls become a CDM site – all livestock MUST be removed before this time for safety and welfare reasons.

The Organisers & Venue(s) reserve the right to limit the number and type of livestock/animals exhibited without giving reason and to instruct the removal of any unfit or unsuitable livestock.

Don’t forget - if you need water on your stand please arrange this as soon as possible to avoid unnecessary delays during build-up/breakdown.  Please refer to “Water & Waste” at the rear of the exhibitor manual for full details.

Please note – visitors are not allowed to bring dogs or any other animals to the show, with the exception of assistance dogs.  There can be no exceptions to this regulation.

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.

This year was my seventh trip to PATS. It’s so important for us to keep up to date and stay relevant, and the event helps us to do that every year

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.

PATS has helped support and raise the profile of Furr Boost, especially on the back of the New Starter Zone last year. At this year’s show we would be happy to talk about our experience in the Den (Dragons' Den) as well as our Super Charged, Award Winning smoothies.
