Pets & Aquatics Trade Show 2018


The Pets and Aquatics Trade Show (PATS) is the UK’s biggest trade show for pet supplies. This event takes place twice a year, once in Sandown and then again in Telford at our venue, The International Centre.

At this years show in Telford, over 2,000 visitors came to the centre to take a look around the exhibition. The exhibition is the biggest part of the event, taking up two of our halls. According to the PATS website, the trade show was a great success with many exhibitors giving positive comments about the event experience. You can read more about PATS by clicking here to go to their website.


Furthermore, on the first day of the trade show was a separate event hosted by PetQuip. This was an awards show and dinner which took place in the evening. It was the 6th year that the awards show has taken place. The event is an opportunity to celebrate some of the best businesses in the industry, and recognise the hard work and dedication given by business owners.
