This year?s PATS Sandown – which took place on 22-23rd of March – was a huge success, according to the organisers.

Pet care retailers from both the UK and overseas flocked to Sandown Park to create what the event has called a ?surge of activity? over the two days of its running.

Speaking of the event, Ben Williams, pet buyer at Dobbies Garden Centres said: ?PATS Sandown is a must-visit event for me. It?s an opportunity to see all the new launches under one roof and talk to important people in the industry.?

Pet Rebellion doubled the size of their PATS Sandown stand this year. The company?s Ray Foard said: ?We?re delighted with the response from retailers. It has definitely been one of the best shows I?ve experienced in my time in the pet industry.?

A big attraction at the show was the New Product Showcase and Awards, which was located in the Esher Hall. Pet Remedy won the best pet care award for its Natural De-Stress & Calming Atomiser.

Organiser Annie Foord said: ?We love running PATS for the pet industry so it is fantastic to hear that exhibitors and visitors have experienced a brilliant show.?

PATS Telford takes place on September 25-26 this year.
