Omicron concerns cause ANIDO postponement
12th January 2022

ANIDO, the biennial trade fair for the pet care sector in Benelux and Northern France, has been postponed until September.

Originally scheduled for February, the event will now take place on September 4-5.

Show organisers said that, although the Belgian authorities had given permission for the event to go ahead next month, the spread of the Covid Omicron variant had made it too difficult for exhibitors to set up their stands and commit to manning them during the show.

The early autumn timeslot has been coordinated with stakeholders and other international fairs. The DIY, Pro & Garden trade fair, which was scheduled to take place at the same time as ANIDO at Kortrijk Xpo, has also been moved to the same weekend in September.

Registered visitors are being informed by e-mail that their visitor badge will be automatically converted into a valid badge for the new dates.
