Latest news from PATS...

The largest-ever PATS show being held at Telford International Centre from Sunday, 29th September to Tuesday, 1st October 2024 will be the only place this year to see all the new pet and aquatics products to be launched in the UK.

PATS 2024 – the Pet & Aquatics Trade Show is THE event where the whole industry meets under one roof with more than 300 exhibitors showcasing their products in four packed halls.

It’s the perfect opportunity for pet and aquatic retailers and garden centres to decide what products to stock over the next year with thousands of items being exhibited, many of which are new launches.

“There will be so much to see and do over the three days of the show,” said organiser Gordon Thomas. “Visitors can be sure of meeting all of the leading brands as well as many new ones. And there will be an international flavour to the show with companies from across mainland Europe and beyond choosing to book a stand and unveil their latest creations.”

Exhibitors from Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland and Turkey, will be joining their counterparts from the UK and Ireland to make PATS 2024 a truly international show. There will also be exhibitors from as far afield as Canada, China, USA, Hong Kong, New Zealand and Thailand.

The first-ever three-day PATS will be hosted across the entire venue in all four halls, and will see the launch of the much-anticipated Aquatics Zone, where aquatics and watergardening companies will be exhibiting their products and services in one dedicated hall.

Seeing the latest launches under one roof is one of the major attractions to PATS visitors, and this year’s show is set to unveil a record number of new products. An already impressive line-up of entries to the popular New Product Showcase, sponsored by pbwnews, is a positive sign that PATS exhibitors are excited about their latest products and can’t wait to show them to visiting retailers and buyers.

Products entered into the Showcase will be judged by a panel of independent retailers on the first day of the show (Sunday, 29th September) to decide the winners of the New Product Awards.

The New Starter Zone, supported by PetQuip with media partner PPM, has been one of the most exciting additions to the show in recent years, with start-up companies taking advantage of the dedicated area in Hall 3 to launch their product ranges, and this year’s Zone is larger than ever.

As well as seeing an unrivalled array of new products and speaking to the major suppliers and manufacturers, visitors will also be able to experience demonstrations from the country’s leading dog groomers.

To help make the visitor experience even more enjoyable and rewarding, PATS Telford offers free show entry, free parking for up to 1,300 vehicles, a free catalogue and many special deals. There will also be a wide range of food options available, with visitors receiving a complimentary tea/coffee voucher.
