PATS Telford 2020 Bringing the pet industry back together Welcome to the third of three special ‘Preview to PATS Telford’ editions, where we put the spotlight on those companies exhibiting at September’s show. Exhibitors are listed in alphabetical order – R to Z. PATS, the UK’s No1 Pet Industry Exhibition, has gone from strength to strength every year since its launch in 2009. The show is the ideal environment in which to meet up with and support regular clients, network with colleagues and showcase all the fantastic products on offer. It’s also a very well-run and extremely friendly show, where the PATS team go above and beyond to support exhibitors and visitors with all their requirements. But you don’t need to take our word for it! Here are just some of the comments from happy exhibitors who are returning to the show at the Telford International Centre on Sunday September 27th and Monday September 28th 2020. “PATS Telford is a fantastic show, which always kickstarts our busiest quarter of the year. It’s easily accessible to retailers nationwide and gives us an opportunity to showcase new products to the trade in advance of the lead up to Christmas. The PATS team are also great hosts, making exhibiting as stress-free and enjoyable as possible!” George Bramble, Beco “Both PATS shows are great for promoting Goodchap’s, and our eco-friendly products are always very well received. The exhibitions are perfect for catching up with our existing customers, and we never struggle to make new contacts. We always come back with new and exciting opportunities.” Liam Goodwin, Goodchap’s “PATS Sandown was such a fantastic show, and we can’t wait to see everyone again at Telford.” Rowena Caesar, Fold Hill Foods

Preview: Exhibitors R-Z Over the years, PATS has proved to be the ideal launchpad for new ranges from established companies and even to help kickstart companies with ideas and ranges new to the pet trade. The show’s regular New Product Awards and Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, are a major contributor to this, as new releases are displayed together on one eye-catching stand, with labels easily directing visitors to the appropriate exhibitor. Entries are judged by a panel of independent retail experts and winners can proudly display their plaques on their stands. These are just some of the comments from the many companies who have enjoyed success with new products thanks to their exposure at the UK’s No1 Pet Industry Exhibition:

It makes this such a great industry exhibition.” Suzanne Rothman, Pet Munchies “PATS is the obvious choice for us as a company to launch new products - it’s the perfect platform.” James Hancock, Petlife International Ltd

“I’ve been in regular contact with our exhibitors throughout lockdown, making sure they are on board with everything that’s being planned for PATS Telford 2020. And they’ve been telling me they can’t wait to showcase their products. “I’ve also spoken to retailers and buyers eager to move on from lockdown, and there is a real thirst to visit an exhibition where they can see and order stock, all under one roof. “There are still 17 weeks to go before the show and we will continue to work with everyone to ensure that PATS Telford 2020 helps the pet industry to come back stronger than ever.” A full and up-to-date list of exhibitors is available on the website www.patshow. co.uk together with all the latest news.
