Retailers can view the latest new product launches and pick up on key trends at the industry’s leading Spring exhibition PATS Sandown on 27-28 March.
Following a successful return of in-person events at PATS Telford in September 2021, manufacturers and suppliers are returning to showcase their new products for 2022 to another live audience at Sandown Park exhibition centre in Esher, Surrey.
PATS Sandown has new dates in 2022 as it moves back to its original March staging after two events were held in February. It will however continue with its successful formula of Sunday and Monday show days, March 27th and 28th.
More than 130 companies and brands have already booked their space at the Spring showcase.
Event organiser Gordon Thomas said: “We are almost sold out, which is great news and proof that the UK pet industry is fully behind an event where suppliers and buyers can meet face to face.
“We also know that visitors to PATS exhibitions value the opportunity to touch and feel new products, which is a huge consideration when buying stock for the new season.”
Companies and brands exhibiting at PATS include Acana/Origin, Burns Pet Nutrition, Canagan, IPN, Pets Choice, Trixie, and we.pet, while a number of businesses, including Pet Dream House, In Vogue, Gladwells, and Vetark, are returning to the Sandown exhibition after a short break.
New exhibitors include Bottled Baking Co, Park Life, Uniwipe Europe and Wings Enterprises, while award-winning gift and treat supplier Sniffe & Likkit is appearing at PATS Sandown for the first time.
Co-founder Lee Sargent said: “We made it to our first PATS in Telford last September and were delighted with the response to our new range, as well as finally having the opportunity to meet so many new and familiar faces in the pet industry. We were super-happy to sign up for Sandown and hopefully repeat a great experience.
“We love being able to demonstrate our products to potential stockists in-person – it’s always the best way and we’ve missed being able to do it.”
