Organisers of PATS Telford have reported that this autumn’s show will have a strong international presence with a growing number of pet buyers and exhibitors from around the world expected to attend the show.
In a further move to create more interest with international buyers, the PATS team will be travelling to Bologna in Italy to exhibit in the British Pavilion at next week’s Zoomark show.
Gordon Thomas, of Impact Exhibitions, which organises the PATS shows in Telford and Sandown, said: “Our primary aim for exhibiting at international shows is to meet, talk to and encourage international retailers and distributors to come to PATS, both in Telford and Sandown.
“We will also be working with PetQuip on the PATS International Buyers’ Programme, identifying key European pet product buyers and inviting them to visit PATS Telford.”
Mr Thomas said the programme has been successfully running for three years and at previous PATS exhibitions, buyers have been attracted from 15 countries, including Germany, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark and Switzerland.
