PAWExpo and new pet exhibition is to be launched next year, focusing on pet products and accessories.
The exhibition will take place in September 2020, and is supported by the team behind the Glee event, and will be unveiled at this years Glee exhibition.
The exhibition will offer a “fresh look” at pet care, wellbeing, “premier” and “luxury” products will take centre stage, showcasing brands that cover everything from food and health, to accessories, technology and retail solutions.
Matthew Mein, Glee and PAWExpo’s Event Director, said: “The way our pets are integrated into our lives has changed exponentially in recent years. Animals no longer regarded as pets, but as one of the family, and it is this that is driving category growth, and why we have seen an unprecedented level of premium and artisan products launched over the past five years, projecting luxury pet goods into the mainstream market.
“At PAWExpo everything retailers need to create a strong and future-facing retail experience – from core products to exciting gifting ranges – is presented under one roof, at a time of year when ranges for the following season are most commonly selected. PawExpo is an exciting prospect, and one that we are looking forward to bringing to market.”
