The countdown has begun for the PATS Telford pet trade show, opening in just over three weeks’ time.
Taking place at the Telford International Centre, Shropshire, the show takes place on October 1-2 and features more exhibitors than ever before with over 250 companies and brands showcasing hundreds of new products.
The New Product Showcase, sponsored by PBW News features a record number of more than 300 products to be judged across eight categories. All entries will be judged on the first morning of the show by a panel of independent retailers and retail experts.
PATS Telford will also be presenting state-of-the-art grooming demonstrations and talks on both days of the show. The Grooming Workshop, in association with For All DogKind, will include demonstrations from some of the country’s leading groomers.
In addition, international trade association PetQuip will be hosting the Business Lounge on the show floor on stand K10, helping international buyers with their product-sourcing enquiries, supporting the New Starter Zone – a special area in Hall 3 dedicated to 30 start-up companies – and staging the presentation of the PetQuip Awards after the first day of the show.
Exhibition organiser Gordon Thomas said: “There has been a tremendous amount of work going on behind the scenes to ensure that PATS Telford delivers the widest range of exhibitors, new products and grooming demonstrations…all under one roof.
“Visitor numbers have been growing rapidly over the years and we’re confident the trend will continue. My advice is to register now for free entry online and then arrive early on the day – doors open at 9.30am – because there’s so much to see and do. You can be assured of a very warm welcome.”
