PetQuip association welcomes Interzoo’s long term plans

The announcement by the organisers of pet trade exhibition Interzoo, that the show will remain at its current venue in Nuremberg until at least 2036, has been applauded by the British-based PetQuip association

PetQuip chose the Interzoo event as its launch platform in 2006. Since then the association 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 in 2016 and interest is already high for the next edition.

The association has secured a prime location for the British pavilion at the 2018 edition of the show. It 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.

Commenting on the Interzoo announcement, the 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.”

Knowledge of the venue and the way in which the show operates are vital when planning exhibition participation and this is where PetQuip’s experience of the show ensures that UK companies get the best return on their investment. 

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 eleven years ago are still benefiting from repeat export orders and new international contacts. 

PetQuip will be providing a comprehensive package to British companies exhibiting in the PetQuip-organised group at Interzoo 2018. The package will be designed to make every aspect of exhibiting simpler and to promote each firm’s message to an international audience.

Although floor plans will not be available on the Interzoo website until at least October, you can register your interest in exhibiting now and obtain further information on the show and PetQuip’s exhibitor package by contacting either Theresa Swann or Emma Lewis at PetQuip: Telephone: +44 (0)1959 565 995 or email: or
