PATS Telford action can now be seen on video

Film footage from the first PATS show at Telford International Centre in September can now be viewed on video.

The exhibition, which broke all records in terms of the number of exhibitors, visitors and new products showcased, is captured in a special film commissioned by organisers Impact Exhibitions.

Gordon Thomas said: “This short video sums up what people thought of our first show at the Telford International Centre. We’ve had some great feedback from both visitors and exhibitors, and we believe the film captures the mood of the pet industry towards this exhibition.

A total of 2,036 visitors went through the doors at Telford International Centre, which was 6% higher than PATS Harrogate last year and the first time the two-day show had broken the 2,000 mark.

On the video both visitors and exhibitors give their reaction to the show, and they include Dr Trude Mostue, who starred in the TV hit show ‘Vet School’. She was exhibiting at PATS for the first time and she said on camera: “This is the perfect place to launch my new product, the KrillBar. I’m so glad I prioritised this show.”

The video will be uploaded to the PATS website and it can now be viewed at
