The amount of new products on display is amazing. A visit to PATS is more than worthwhile - it's essential if you're a serious retailer.

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.

“We have timed our launch to coincide with PATS 2024. We are very excited to be finally launching our products after the hard work we have put in behind the scenes to design such a high quality, practical and eco-friendly dog bed. We look forward to welcoming retailers to our stand to be able to see DogDoov”.
