Organisers of PATS Telford have announced that its New Product Awards will go ahead this year, despite the cancellation of PATS Telford that was due to take place this September.
The awards provide an opportunity for suppliers and manufacturers to showcase new launches to retailers and buyers across the UK.
Those who were due to exhibit at PATS have now been invited to enter the New Product Showcase online before the closing date of 28 September 28, 2020.
All entries in the eight categories will then be put before a panel of independent retailers at a judging day that will be organised by sponsors pbwnews.
The eight categories within the New Product Awards include: Cat Food and Products; Dog Accessories and Toys; Dog Food and Products; Dog Treats and Products; Dog Harnesses; Leads and Dog Wear; Grooming Products; Pet Care Products; Small Animal and Bird Products.
Gordon Thomas, an organiser at Impact Exhibitions and Events, said: “We’re really pleased that the New Product Awards are still taking place this year.
“I’m grateful for the continued support of pbwnews, who have been sponsors of the New Product Showcase since its inception in 2009, and thanks to their help these coveted awards are able to take place this year.”
He added: “Companies have told us that winning a PATS award has helped them to successfully launch a new product, so there is no greater incentive for businesses to be involved.”
