The new three-day PATS 2024 continues to exceed all expectations as a record number of companies and brands book stand space for the show, which takes place at Telford International Centre from Sunday, 29th September to Tuesday 1st October 2024.

With still five months to go before the doors open, over 260 exhibitors have already been confirmed, with the final figure expected to reach well over 300.  Exhibitors include Alpha/Vitalin, Catit, Bionic & Zeus, Copdock Mill, Hills Pet Nutrition, Kong, LickiMat, Orijen, Acana, Pedigree Wholesale, Scruffs and Trixie, amongst many, many more.

One the latest companies to guarantee its stand is Welsh-based JR Pet Products, a supplier of 100% natural dog treats and chews, which became the 260th business to do so.

Sales director Becky Davies said: “We are eagerly counting down the days until PATS. It's always an event we look forward to, offering a fantastic chance to reconnect with our loyal customers and introduce ourselves to new ones. The new three-day format is especially exciting, allowing us to engage with even more attendees and spend quality time discussing our passion for natural dog treats and chews. Plus, we’re thrilled to announce that we will have over 250 products with us to see, including some new and exciting ones. See you there at stand G50/60.”

With PATS 2024 taking over all of the exhibition space at Telford International Centre, this year’s event will also feature the Aquatics Zone, a dedicated area for aquatics and watergardening exhibitors.

Showcasing all of the latest launches under one roof, the show’s reputation has grown impressively over the past 16 years since launching in 2009. With such a winning formula, PATS has become the ‘must-visit’ event for UK and international retailers and buyers.

Natural dog food supplier Finer By Nature is making its return to PATS, eager to take advantage of the show’s reputation for attracting key decision makers and buyers. Director Gary Pitchford said: “We are delighted to be attending once again in 2024. The new three-day format is set to be a real winner for exhibitors and visitors alike. PATS is our trade highlight of the year and brings in plenty of new business. We really look forward to it…it’s a great show.”

New to PATS, Fell Dog, whose founder Carolyn Harker said: “We are thrilled to be located in the dedicated New Starter Zone, which helps to increase visibility for new businesses like ours. We believe a three-day event is the optimal time frame and will help maximise opportunity and allow more flexibility for visitors in retail.”

As the exhibitor numbers continue to grow over the coming months, work continues on delivering the best visitor attractions, including:

  • The biggest ever showcase of new pet, aquatic and watergardening products
  • Unrivalled show offers and competitions
  • Top groomers giving insightful demonstrations, workshops and talks
  • Fantastic networking opportunities
  • Free entry, free show catalogue, free parking for up to 1,300 cars and a complimentary tea/coffee voucher

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.
