What makes PATS Telford so special? - Petlife International
James Hancock, Director, Petlife International

The biggest-ever PATS Telford, which takes place on 1-2 October 2023, promises to be a memorable show in the UK pet industry calendar with more than 250 companies and brands unveiling hundreds of new products.

Three exhibition halls at Telford International Centre in Shropshire will be buzzing with activity as exhibitors showcase their latest launches over the two show days.

As excitement starts to build, a regular exhibitor reveals why PATS Telford has become a must-visit event for pet retailers and buyers.

Why have you chosen to exhibit at PATS Telford?
We consider PATS Telford to be the number one pet trade event in the UK – it offers us the opportunity to meet with high quality retailers, wholesalers, distributors and other pet related businesses all under one roof.

What makes the exhibition so special?
The feel-good factor driven by quality exhibitors and quality visitors.

How important is it for suppliers and manufacturers to have a show like PATS?
A show like PATS is vital to the industry – without it, we as a manufacturer/supplier would struggle to reach the breadth of potential customers whom we meet face to face at the event.

What are you hoping to achieve at the show?
We hope to take orders for both existing lines and new lines over the course of the two days, and to meet with new clients from across the UK and further afield.

Will you be unveiling new products there?
Yes, PATS Telford is the perfect launch platform for new products in our experience – the event offers a high quality, engaged audience, specifically looking for new lines in many cases.

Why should a retailer take time away from their store to visit the show?
High quality exhibitors, new lines, unique to show offers, and innovation – all things that retailers may potentially miss in not visiting the show. 

Registration for free entry to the show is open for retailers and buyers at
