One of the show’s regular exhibitors, PetLife International, captured the mood of the pet industry towards the show. Managing director James Hancock said: “We are thrilled to be participating in PATS Telford 2023 and showcasing our latest pet products. This exhibition is a fantastic platform for us to connect with industry professionals, pet retailers, and pet lovers, allowing us to demonstrate the exceptional quality and innovation behind our brand.”
As the UK’s National Pet Industry Exhibition, PATS Telford offers retailers the ideal opportunity to get hands-on with all the latest product launches – all under one roof.
The extensive New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, will be in two prime locations in Halls 2 and 3, where visitors will be given a first glance of what’s new for 2024. All entries to the Showcase are entered into the prestigious New Product Awards, which are judged by a panel of retailers on the first morning of the show so that winners can be celebrated across the three halls for the rest of the exhibition.
The New Starter Zone, supported by PetQuip with media partner PPM, is one of the most exciting additions to the show, with start-up companies taking advantage of the dedicated area in Hall 3.
Pawer Water, a ground-breaking canine wellness supplement, will be one of 30 new brands exhibiting in the Zone. Company founder Nathalie Ohana said: “PATS is an outstanding opportunity to introduce our product to quality retailers nationally, expand our commercial reach, and meet with innovators who, like us, are offering a fresh perspective on pet wellness. For us, it is definitely a ‘pawer-ful’ and strategic occasion.”
As well as meeting the industry’s top suppliers and viewing their latest launches, visitors will be given the chance to learn more about the grooming sector, which has grown considerably in the past few years. There will be insightful demonstrations, workshops and talks from top groomers throughout the two days of the show, all hosted by Peanut & Pickle.
To help make the visitor experience even more enjoyable and rewarding, PATS Telford offers free show entry, free parking, a free catalogue and many special deals to visiting pet professionals.
There will also be a wide range of food options available, with visitors receiving a complimentary lunch voucher in addition to the regular tea or coffee voucher. Register now at www.patshow.co.uk where a full list of exhibitors can also be found.
