Organisers of PATS Telford have announced that 100 companies have already signed up to exhibit at the event in September.
PATS Telford takes place on Sunday and Monday, September 22 and 23. It will be the fifth time the show has taken place at Telford International Centre and organisers said it will be another sell-out event.
Regular exhibitors like Anco, Beco Pets, Bern Pet Foods, Danish Design, flexi, Inspired Pet Nutrition, James & Steel, Johnson’s Veterinary Products, Marriages, Natures Menu, PJ Pet Products, Pedigree Wholesale, Royal Canin, Sky Pet Products, Trixie and Versele-Laga will be joined by a growing number of companies making their first appearance at Telford.
As well as seeing a rang of new pet products and speaking to top suppliers and manufacturers, visitors will also be able to witness demonstrations from the country’s leading dog groomers and listen to talks from prominent industry figures.
Leading trade association PetQuip will again be working with PATS to tempt international pet retail chains and distributors to the Autumn showpiece, and will be hosting the International Buyers’ Centre, where visitors can sit down and meet prospective new suppliers at the event.
PetQuip team members will also be available to provide business services, sourcing advice and arrange introductions to UK pet companies.
Pat Flynn, PetQuip’s trade association manager, said: “The PATS events are always well run with lots of excellent exhibitors displaying new and innovative products. It is a pleasure to publicise the shows to our wide database of international buyers, and this is beneficial for our members who exhibit too.”
Parking is free at the Telford International Centre, and all visitors will receive free tea and coffee, and a free show catalogue.
