by | Dec 2, 2016 | News | 0 comments


PATS Sandown is the place for pet retailers to see a host of new and international exhibitors as well as the industry?s big-name brands, all of which will be showcasing their 2017 launches over two action packed days on March 21-22.

An impressive number of suppliers and manufacturers are appearing at the Sandown Park venue in Surrey for the first time. These include Higher Nature,

SAI Global, Edgard Cooper, PDSA, Loving Pets and Pet Adventures Worldwide. Primenove from Italy and Bowl & Bone from the Czech Republic will also be making their PATS debuts.

Edgard Cooper appeared at PATS Telford in September and were delighted with the response from retailers to their range of dog food.

?The show was a fantastic opportunity to introduce the brand to the industry and we?ve been very busy following up enquiries since the event,? said Edgard Cooper?s marketing executive Rebecca Owens.

?Due to how monumental PATS Telford was for us it comes as no surprise that PATS Sandown is firmly in our diary. We are hoping to build upon our success at Sandown and share our unique story with those attending for many years to come.?

US-based Pet Adventures Worldwide are another company appearing at Sandown for the first time after a successful PATS debut appearance at Telford. Ken Golisch, MD, PAW Europe, said: ?The feedback on our retractable leads during the Telford exhibition was encouraging, and consequently it?s a natural next step to present our ranges to the Sandown audience. The UK is one of the most relevant international markets and exhibiting in Surrey is key to meeting British decision makers.?

Following its success as a first time exhibitor to PATS in Telford, leading veterinary charity, PDSA, has signed up to exhibit at Sandown. Paul Lilwall, PDSA Vet Care sales manager, said: ?We were delighted to launch our Vet Care range to the trade at Telford and were pleased with the outcome. We?re already looking forward to exhibiting at Sandown.?

Italian company, Primenove, is excited to present its smart and innovative pet accessories at Sandown. The range includes: Beviqui, a drinking bowl that adapts to any plastic bottle; Noah, a foldable pet carrier; and Click Suite, an expandable habitat for hamsters. ?PATS Sandown is the perfect springboard to broaden Primenove?s network and to open promising collaborations in the UK,? said Alessandra Catena.

Organiser Annie Foord said: ?It?s great to see so many new companies choosing to exhibit at PATS Sandown for the first time. Together with our valued regular exhibitors, they are sure to make the two-day show one to remember.?

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

Parking is free at Sandown Park, and everyone will receive free tea and coffee, and a free show catalogue.

PATS Sandown in March is the only place to see the whole pet industry and all the latest products under one roof, and is designed to cater for both pet retailers and garden centres.

A full list of the exhibitors can be found at where visitors can register for free entry to the show.
