Visitors and exhibitors alike are excitedly preparing for the UK’s Spring Pet Industry Exhibition, which opens its doors this Sunday and Monday.
PATS Sandown takes place on March 27-28, with more than 130 companies and brands showcasing hundreds of new products.
PATS always attracts large numbers of dedicated buyers from both the UK and overseas, and this year offers even more opportunities for business. The major players in the industry will be in attendance, as well as many newer or smaller companies hoping to catch the eye with innovative products. There is something for everyone.
Other highlights include the New Product Showcase and the ever-popular demonstrations from leading figures in the grooming industry – a great opportunity to discover some useful trade secrets.
“There has been a tremendous amount of work going on behind the scenes to make sure that PATS Sandown delivers the widest range of exhibitors, new products and grooming demonstrations…all under one roof,” said organiser Gordon Thomas.
“There is so much to see and do inside the exhibition halls I would advise visitors to arrive early at Sandown Park in Esher, Surrey – the show opens on both days at 9.30am. We can’t wait to greet everyone.”
The New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, is a great opportunity for visiting retailers to see and touch the new products they will be stocking for the coming season.
More than 200 entries to the Showcase will judged by a panel of retailers for the New Product Awards on the first morning of the show, so the results will be known and highlighted throughout the Surrey and Esher Halls for the rest of the exhibition.
To help make the visitor experience even more enjoyable and rewarding, PATS Sandown offers free show entry, free parking, a free catalogue and many special deals.
There will also be a wide range of food available from all the various outlets and visitors will receive a free cup of tea or coffee voucher, which will be redeemable all day.
This year’s Sandown show takes on extra meaning as it will be the 25th PATS exhibition to be staged. To celebrate the milestone, a special drinks reception sponsored by pbwnews will be held after the first day of the event. Exhibitors and visitors will be invited to stay behind for the reception, which will also be marking the 50th anniversary of Pedigree Wholesale, a regular exhibitor at PATS.
Pet product retailers and buyers can still register for free entry to PATS Sandown at www.patshow.co.uk where a full list of exhibitors can also be found.
