Last chance to reserve a place at this year's UK Forum & Awards

It’s just a matter of days until the UK’s pet industry descends on Liverpool for the 2015 Pet Industry Forum & Awards.

Taking place from November 17-18 at the Crowne Plaza City Centre Hotel, the event is packed with business and networking opportunities, which all pet businesses, in particular retailers, manufacturers and suppliers, will gain much from.

A diverse range of talks will cover issues such as:

  • UK pet market data
  • Pets at Home’s Pet Report 2015;
  • How to grow your retail business
  • Working together – a better result for everyone
  • Taking advantage of social media
  • Strategy first; website second

On the evening of Tuesday, November 17, the winners of the Pet Industry Federation Awards will be announced at a fantastic black-tie event. The awards are a celebration of the hard work and dedication of many pet businesses who, each in their own way, help further pet ownership and raise standards of pet welfare in the UK.

More information about the event can be found at

There are still a few tickets available. They can be purchased separately for either the Forum or the Awards or as a combined ticket price, which offers the best rate.

Tickets can be bought online or by telephoning the customer service team on 01234 273933.
