Zoomark International 2021 is all set to be held in Bolognafiere, Italy on November 11-12 – with all the necessary health and safety guarantees in place.
“The show will go on,” the organisers say. “What’s more, it will be ‘in person’, as we now say, based on a careful assessment of the situation, likely developments from now to next winter and the welcome prospect of vaccination coverage.
“It is a decision that sends a strong, responsible message to the international pet industry community, which is eager to get together, to have a chance to look to and construct the future and capitalise on the new habits that have formed in this difficult yet extraordinarily significant year.”
As well as a host of international exhibitors, Zoomark International 2021 will present its New Products area with the addition of a New Trends area, showcasing technological innovations and products that throw the focus on sustainability and the circular economy, now rapidly expanding in the pet industry.
In parallel to the in-person event, Zoomark International is also developing a digital platform to boost the reach of its exhibitors. This will be a resource for those planning a visit to the event and will enable industry professionals from further afield – for whom travel may prove complicated – to nonetheless take part in the Bologna event.
The organisers have opted for a return to the original odd-year schedule of Zoomark International, following the unprecedented events of the past 12 months.
