PetQuip database helps generate overseas sales leads

Up-to-date international buyer database information provided by the PetQuip association was one of the many services that proved beneficial to British exhibitors at the recent Global Pet Expo in Orlando, Florida.

Companies such as Armitage Pet Care and POO Guard used the database listings in their build-up to the show and as a result both companies made important new sales contacts with North American retailers and distributors, as well as buyers from South America, Asia and Europe. Armitage Pet Care’s products attracted around 50 new business leads and Julius Rugg of POO Guard stated that “the show exceeded expectations”.

A similar view was echoed by Kevin Barton of ALF, who added that the company plans to exhibit at the show again in 2017. In addition to making new contacts in North America, the company met with potential customers from Jamaica, Barbados, South Korea and other markets not normally seen at European trade shows. 

Another participant in the PetQuip-organised exhibitor group at Global Pet Expo was Hilton Herbs, who received quality leads from North America, South America and Asia, with an unusually high number of sales leads from potential Chinese distributors.

A regular exhibitor in PetQuip groups at international pet product trade shows is Spikes World, who returned to the UK with a good sales prospect from Chile and more orders from its Dutch distributor. The company also acquired new contacts for its US distributor and opened discussions with a potential new Spanish distributor. 

First time exhibitor Woofaloo met with key contacts from North America as well as prospective distributors from markets such as South Korea, the Ukraine and Taiwan.

Beco Pets benefitted from the rate of growth in the eco sector with its range of eco-friendly products that attracted many US companies ranging from small outlets to leading pet retail players. Through the company’s collaboration with US distributor Pet Product Innovations they now have full US coverage for the Beco Pets ranges. Beco Pets described the show as phenomenal and stated that international interest in the brand at the show was also high from Chinese contacts as well as from numerous South American countries.

PetQuip’s British pet product British information stand also attracted around 50 buyer and press contacts and generated 15 positive leads from 12 countries so far, all of which have been passed on to PetQuip members.
