Visitors to PATS Telford in September can expect a busy show as almost every stand at the two-day event has now been sold.

The exhibition hall at The Telford International Centre will be packed with stands showcasing new products – and there will be lots to see and talk about with more than 200 companies exhibiting.

As well as meeting up with a long list of PATS regulars, visitors will be greeted by a host of new faces at the show, which takes place on Sunday, September 24 and Sunday, September 25.

PATS Telford attracted a total of 2,009 visitors in 2016 – the second year in a row that the 2,000 barrier had been broken – and with so many plans for 2017 it could easily be another record-breaking year.

TropiClean, a manufacturer of grooming and oral care products, is looking forward to its first PATS show. “We could not ask to be in a better place than PATS Telford to show the entire trade why TropiClean items are so unique and, more importantly, how proven all ranges are,” said the company’s Paul Mercer. “Our objective at September’s show is to further widen our customer base, as well as look to extend our offerings with current customers.”

One of PATS Telford’s most popular features is the New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, which attracted more than 260 entries last year. Early indications suggest this figure will increase this year, and all items will be displayed prominently in the exhibition hall.

The Showcase entries will be judged by a panel of retailer judges on the first morning of the show and the winners will receive their honours at the PetQuip Awards Dinner on the evening of the opening day.

For All Dogkind has won the Grooming Product Award at PATS in the past, and Laura Redstone said: “After winning the award we were overwhelmed by the trade enquiries we received from both the UK and overseas. The accolade gave DogKind a superb launch platform into the pet and grooming industry.”

Show visitors will receive free entry, free parking, a free catalogue and many special offers. There will also be a full programme of free seminars and grooming demonstrations.
