Having attracted a record number of 141 exhibitors, more space has been allocated at Sandown Park – making it the biggest show ever, as was expected earlier in the year.
And as well as meeting up with a long list of PATS regulars, visitors will be greeted by a host of new faces and new products when the show takes place from 19 to 21 March.
“Sandown will be our first PATS,” said retail marketing manager of the Hutch Company, John Brimm. “And March will be the perfect time to show our ranges of rabbit hutches, chicken coops, kennels and bird tables.”
“There will be some great money-saving promotions on offer over the two-day event and we are looking forard to meeting existing and new customers, as well as overseas visitors.”
Other companies are looking to promote new products at the exhibition, with PATS first-timer Su-Bridge Pet Supplies taking the opportunity to further fledgling brands.
“We’ll be launching our new dog food brand, ‘Lovejoys’, at PATS so we want to see as many people as possible, including international visitors,” said Su-Bridge director Ian Manning.
With so many new products to see and exciting plans to discuss, visitors are now being urged to register for free show entry. Other benefits include free parking, free catalogue, free programme of seminars and dog grooming demonstrations, and many special offers.
Visitors can register online or by calling the PATS hotline on 01892 862 848.
