Organisers of PATS Sandown said the event has proved itself again to be the UK’s number one pet industry exhibition with suppliers and buyers agreeing the show had been a huge success.
With more than 150 companies and brands exhibiting their vast ranges, there was plenty for visitors to see and talk about during two days of non-stop activity.
Much of PATS Sandown’s success is down to the fact it provides the perfect platform for retailers and buyers to see, feel and touch all the latest new products under one roof.
This year’s show was no exception as visitors gave it the thumbs up.
Lyn Neal, of Pet Express Pet Shop in Hastings, said: “As a retailer it’s important for me to come to PATS Sandown – I visit every year. It’s very inspiring to see all the latest launches on display, and then meet up with the product suppliers. I always look forward to the show.”
Chris Murray, travelled three hours from his Brysons Pet Supplies store in Exeter.
He said: “I’m a stickler for seeing and feeling new products before I buy them, and visiting PATS Sandown gives me that opportunity. For me it’s a long drive to the show but well worth the trip.”
On the exhibitor side, Stuart Ferriday, trade marketing manager at Forthglade, said: “We always value our time at PATS.
“It’s great to introduce new product launches at the event and get some great feedback. We’ve been able to catch up with customers old and new, and offer some exclusive trade deals across our products – as ever it has proved a great show.”
