Exhibitor stands at PATS Sandown ‘sold out’


Visitors to PATS Sandown next month (March) can expect a busy and exciting show as all exhibitor stands at the two-day event have now been sold.


The Surrey and Esher Halls at Sandown Park in Surrey will be packed with stands showcasing new products. And with the ‘Show Sold Out’ signs being posted already, there will be lots to see and talk about with over 150 companies exhibiting.


As well as meeting up with a long list of PATS regulars, visitors will be greeted by a host of new faces when the show takes place on Tuesday, March 20, and Wednesday, March 21, 2018.


A total of 37 companies will be exhibiting at the Spring show for the first time as they see PATS as the perfect opportunity to showcase their products to retailers and overseas distributors.


Different Dog is launching its home cooked frozen dog food at PATS Sandown. Founder Charlie Thurstan, formerly Head of Food at Pets at Home, said: “We are excited to be making our debut appearance at PATS Sandown. We are bringing the first home cooked frozen dog food to the UK retail market. The food is inspired by the nutritional needs of my own beloved spaniel Crumble.”



Mud Daddy, a portable mud/dirt washing brush, is also new to PATS Sandown. The company’s Rez Gachacr said: “We are really looking forward to the show where we’ll be hoping to sign up wholesalers and retailers to stock our products. Mud Daddy has been well received by pet owners and we want to extend its reach.”


One of PATS Sandown’s most popular features is the New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, and because of its importance it will be staged in a prominent position in the Surrey Hall’s Brasserie Bar.


The Showcase entries will be judged by a panel of retailer judges for the New Product Awards on the first morning of the show, and the results will be announced and promoted throughout the halls for the rest of the exhibition.



There will also be a full programme of free seminars during both days of the show.


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 benefitting from free show entry, free parking, a free catalogue and many special offers.


There will also be a wide range of food available from all the various outlets and visitors will receive a free cup of tea or coffee voucher, which will be redeemable all day.
