PATS Sandown is set for a memorable show

by | Jan 9, 2019 | Community, News | 0 comments

New for 2019, PATS Sandown has moved to a Sunday and Monday. This creates an opportunity for retailers to attend without impacting on sales time.
The change to a February date also means the show is the first-stop for everything new in 2019. It thus offers the chance to stock up well before the retail shows get going in the spring.
As ever, there are all the usual benefits of a top PATS show to look forward to.
With more than 140 exhibitors, and the New Product Showcase, there will be no shortage of products.

New at PATS

Retailers and buyers attending PATS at Sandown Park in Surrey can expect a warm welcome.
As well as meeting up with a long list of PATS regulars, visitors will see a host of new faces and new products. A large number of companies are choosing to exhibit at Sandown for the first time.
Buyers from garden centres will find the widest range of products anywhere in the UK.
The New Product Showcase is a great way for visitors to see and touch the new products they will be stocking.
In previous years more than 200 new items have entered into the Showcase. It’s the best place to view potential bestsellers. Items entered will go forward for the New Product Awards judged by a panel of retailers.
?Visitors to the show will see and speak to the leading names in the industry. Early indications show lots of new products at the show,? said organiser Gordon Thomas.
As well as the new product launches, there will be a free-to-attend series of seminars. These will give retailers information they can take back to their businesses.
Some of the industry?s leading personalities will deliver talks this year.
Grooming workshops will also be returning to the show after a two-year absence.
To help improve the visitor experience, both halls have their own entrances. Visitors enjoy free show entry, free parking, a free catalogue and many special offers.
