More than 100 firms have already secured their stand space for the Sandown event.
Previous exhibitors have made sure they have re-booked early with top brands like Barking and Meowing Heads, Beaphar, Bern Pet Foods, Burns Pet Nutrition, Ferplast, Flexi, Lennox, Lovejoys, Marriages, Pedigree Wholesale, Royal Canin/James Wellbeloved, Sharples and Grant, Trixie, and Wagg committed to the event.
Included in this will be a host of new and international exhibitors like Petitamis, from Italy, and Schulze Heimtierbedarf, from Germany.
“It’s great to know that the pet industry continues to get right behind PATS Sandown,” said organiser Annie Foord. “Visitors to the show can be assured they will get to see and speak to the leading names in the industry. Early indications point towards lots of new products being launched at the show.”
Rob Harvey Specialist Feeds are returning to PATS after a seven-year absence and are hoping to impress a growing number of pet retailers with their wide range of bird food.
“Over the last four years we have been importing bird related products from all over the world, and because the bird category seems to be a growth area for the pet trade, exhibiting at PATS Sandown seems the sensible option for us. It’s the ideal place for us to showcase our massive range,” says Rob Harvey.
Dirk Schulze, of Schulze Heimtierbedarf, has signed up to exhibit at PATS Sandown because he believes the UK is the biggest market outside the US for dog and cat products.
“I like the layout of PATS because the organisers make it easy for visitors to check out the latest products, and everything is under one roof,” says Dirk.
To help make the visitor experience even more enjoyable and rewarding, both the Surrey and Esher Halls have their own entrances and registration points, with visitors benefiting from free show entry, free parking, a free catalogue and many special offers. There will also be a full programme of free seminars.
