The rescheduled event, which has just opened for bookings, will now take place in Nuremberg, Germany, between 1 June and 4 June 2021.
The international pet trade exhibition was due to take place between 19 May and 22 May this year, but the event was postponed in light of the escalating pandemic.
PetQuip is now asking pet industry companies to either join the UK Pavilion or exhibit on an independent stand with the benefit of “all the support, information and advance publicity offered by the multi-lingual PetQuip team”, who will be based on the PetQuip industry information stand within the pavilion at the event.
The trade association has organised UK exhibitors at the event “for many years” as one of the Department for International Trade’s Trade challenge partners.
Director general, Amanda Sizer Barrett, said: “Following the postponement of this May’s edition of the show, the PetQuip association team is looking forward to supporting UK exhibitors at Interzoo in 2021.
“Our experienced team has already reserved space in a prime location for the UK exhibitor group at this event.”
She added: “We provide a comprehensive show support package for exhibitors which includes organising space and stand build if required, plus advice and information on all aspects of exhibiting; excellent international PR coverage before, during and after the event; a multilingual Product Innovation brochure which will be sent to international buyers drawn from our exclusive database; plus help during and following the event to maximise sales leads and guidance on converting these to new export sales.
“A total of 56 companies were part of the PetQuip UK exhibiting group at Interzoo in 2018 and demand for exhibition space in the prime location we have reserved is already very high for 2021.”
Interzoo allows international pet retailers to showcase their products, with an expanse of over 120,000 square metres of exhibits.
The event features products across equestrian sports, pet food technology, shop fittings, and IT systems, as well as traditional products for dogs, cats, small mammals, birds, aquaria and terraria.
