PetQuip applauds Interzoo’s ‘stability’

The news that Interzoo – the world’s largest international pet trade exhibition – is to remain at its current venue in Nuremberg until at least 2036 has been welcomed by the UK-based PetQuip trade association.

PetQuip chose the Interzoo event as its launch platform in 2006 and since then has organised and supported the British pavilion at every edition of the biennual event. The UK exhibitor presence reached a record 62 pet trade suppliers last year and interest is already high for the next edition in 2018.

The association says it has secured a prime location for the British pavilion at next year’s show in Germany and has already flagged up this event with government for the allocation of cash grants for eligible exhibitors. British companies that exhibit in other areas of the exhibition may also benefit from PetQuip’s services and the funding by joining the British group, provided they register interest at the same time as committing to exhibiting.

Director general of PetQuip Amanda Sizer Barrett said: “Over the past 10 years, the PetQuip association has forged a strong bond with the organisers of this major event for the world’s pet trade. The latest announcement will only serve to strengthen that position to the benefit of UK exhibitors. Businesses welcome stability, and the fact that we will be continuing to work over a long period with the organisers at a venue that we know well will be attractive to UK pet suppliers…

“Past exhibitors in the British pavilion have experienced the value of Interzoo in terms of the quality of the export orders they have secured. For example, firms that exhibited at the show at our launch 11 years ago are still benefiting from repeat export orders and new international contacts.”

As with all international trade exhibitions where PetQuip is involved, the association will be providing a comprehensive package to British companies exhibiting in the PetQuip-organised group at Interzoo 2018.

PetQuip is the International Trade Association of Pet Equipment Suppliers.
