The PetQuip Awards 2015 are off to a great start with entries already flooding in but there is still time to enter if you haven’t yet sent off your registration form.
"Quite a lot of companies, both retailers and manufacturers, have said they wish to enter but I need to receive their forms by June 30," said Trade Association Manager, Pat Flynn.
"The detail of their entry doesn’t need to be with me until mid July so they have plenty of time to pull their information together."
If you have already sent in a registration form but haven’t heard from the PetQuip team yet, don’t worry.
"We are still wading through the registration forms and advising entrants but everyone will be contacted within the next three weeks. It’s very exciting to receive so many diverse applications this year," said Pat.
There is also a new Marketing category for 2015 inspired and backed by marketing guru Maryanne Stokes. It is open to both retailers and suppliers and presents a great opportunity for the industry to shout about their re-branding, new packing, POS, advertising or even events.
The judging will take place in August and the winners will be announced on September 27 at a gala dinner taking place on the first night of PATS Telford.
"The dinner will be a celebratory night for the awards winners but also a celebration of the new PATS venue," said PATS Telford organiser Gordon Thomas.
"We will be inviting major international retailers and many of our UK retail visitors to the dinner, following on from our free drinks reception, to continue the networking experienced during the first day of PATS. It will be a fun night to look forward to."
