PetQuip found that exhibitors returning to the UK reported sales and potential business from worldwide markets secured at the show above and beyond their expectations.
PetQuip group exhibitors enjoyed a selection of important orders, including large product requests from Spanish and Greek customers for Tastybone. Pet Rebellion secured an extensive order from a chain of 430 stores. Micro-ID received a request for 5000 of its implanter syringes (which allow microchips to be inserted into pets) from a Dubai-based customer.
Ken Seymour, of Tastybone, said: ‘Zoomark was once again a tremendous show for Tastybone. We attended the show with a wish list and we are happy to say we exceeded our target. We took several large orders at the show, and on the day we arrived home we received orders from a number of new distributors acquired at the show’.
PetQuip’s director general Amanda Sizer Barrett said: ‘Once, again the show has proved to be a resounding success for the British exhibitors, and the PetQuip team manning the information stand also welcomed buyers from all over Europe, including many central and eastern European countries. Also, we were pleased to meet with representatives from Australia, Japan and the USA. Buyers included pet chains, independent pet shops, importers/distributors/wholesalers and web stores.’
