PATS Telford shapes up for biggest-ever show

Company: PATS Telford

With so many exciting plans for 2023, PATS Telford is certain to be an unmissable show with more stand space being allocated in three packed halls at the Telford International Centre in Shropshire.

With still over four months to the show on Sunday, 1st October, and Monday, 2nd October 2023, more than 200 companies have already booked their stand space.

As well as meeting up with a long list of PATS regulars, visitors will be greeted by a host of new faces when the show takes place.

An increasing number of companies are exhibiting at PATS Telford for the first time as they grasp the opportunity to showcase their products to retailers and overseas distributors.

Companies like ROGZ UK acknowledge the importance of exhibiting at the UK’s National Pet Industry Event. “We are super excited to be exhibiting at Telford this year,” said Sallie-Ann Reed from ROGZ UK.After visiting the show in 2022 we saw just how vibrant and busy it was. With PATS Telford being THE national pet trade event for the UK and as a business with so much to share, it was a natural decision to exhibit this year. We are really looking forward to welcoming customers at the show in October.”

More international exhibitors are also using PATS as a platform to launch their products on to the UK market.

Italian company IMAC Pet Products is looking forward to introducing its brand, and export sales manager Ileana Zambelli said: “After regular visits to the show, finally the time has come for IMAC to exhibit at PATS. It’s the ideal show in UK for us to showcase our pet products and we can’t wait to be there.”
