Excitement builds as PATS Telford gets set for epic show


The excitement is building as the pet industry gears up for one of its biggest events of the year…PATS Telford on Sunday and Monday, 23-24 September.


All the latest innovations, exciting new product launches, unrivalled networking opportunities and future trends come together to create the industry’s most thriving exhibition.


Visitors can expect to see more than 200 exhibitors at PATS Telford with the industry’s leading companies, plus a growing number of new businesses, ready to showcase their products and services.


Final preparations are being made as the eagerly awaited exhibition gets set to open its doors at Telford International Centre in a just over a month’s time.


This year’s show has attracted:

  • A record numbers of new exhibitors – 63 in total
  • The biggest ever showcase of new products
  • Unrivalled show offers and competitions
  • Top groomers for insightful demos and talks
  • Leading figures delivering informative seminars

“There is a tremendous buzz surrounding the show,” says organiser Annie Foord. “So much is happening at PATS Telford over both days of the exhibition, it really is a must-visit event for retailers and buyers. You won’t be disappointed.


“All the latest new product launches will be unveiled as well as great talks from some of the industry’s most respected names and demonstrations from the country’s top groomers.


“I can promise it will be great day out so make sure you travel to Telford and attend the biggest pet trade show for years.”


With so many exciting plans it could easily be a record-breaking year for attendance numbers as well.


On arrival at Telford International Centre, a large majority of visitors will head for the New Product Showcase, which will have a huge presence at the exhibition. All entries in the Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, will be judged by a panel of retailers for the New Product Awards on the first morning of the show, and the winners will receive their accolades at the PetQuip Awards Dinner in the evening.


As well as seeing an unrivalled array of new pet products and speaking to top suppliers and manufacturers, visitors will also be able to witness demonstrations from the country’s leading dog groomers and listen to talks from prominent industry figures.


All visitors to PATS Telford will receive a free catalogue, free tea and coffee, and free parking, and you can register online for free entry at the PATS website


A full and up-to-date list of exhibitors is available on the website together with information on how to reach both venues and regularly updated show news.
