It’s free to enter the Pet Industry Federation Awards and to be in with a chance of winning you simply need to explain, in no more than 500 words, why you think your business should win. To help steer you in the right direction however, we have put a list of criteria together that judges will be specifically looking for in the entries.
Short-listed companies will be publicised in September.
The winners will then be announced at the glittering Pet Industry Federation Awards dinner on Tuesday 17 November at the Crowne Plaza City Centre Hotel, Liverpool in front of nearly 250 pet industry guests. Winners will receive their awards from stage and screen legend, Brian Blessed, who will then regale the audience with an entertaining after-dinner speech.
The black-tie gala evening will have a 60’s theme and will include pre-dinner drinks (sponsored by Burgess Petcare), three-course dinner, entertainment (sponsored by Compton Hall) and live band. It promises to be spectacular and memorable!
