With networking opportunities to enable you to connect with industry professionals, innovative ideas inspired by success stories to help your pet department succeed and the opportunity to speak to the innovative brands to learn about new products to stock in your shop, the conference is perfect for garden centre managers looking take advantage of the opportunities in ‘pet’.

An evening social BBQ will take place after the first day to allow for relaxed networking.

The conference will also feature pitches from the finalists of PIF’s Innovation of the Year Award. 14 pet business finalists will showcase their innovative product or service to delegates, proving the innovation is a key component of the pet industry. Delegates will have the chance to stay ahead of the game and stock these products before others do so.

The conference will take place over two days from Wednesday 5 – Thursday 6 June at the Cranfield Management Development Centre near Milton Keynes and on-site accommodation is also available.  

Garden Centre Retail readers can even take advantage of a special discount code to attend the event, giving 11% off the full price ticket. To do so, simply add the code bop24 at the checkout.
