Petfood Industry magazine is hosting a new petfood industry conference – Petfood Forum China – that will be located in Shanghai on October 12, 2012.
Petfood Forum China, a conference for petfood and pet treat professionals involved in all areas of the industry, will be co-located with the 15th annual Pet Fair Asia at the Shanghai World Exhibition & Convention Center. Petfood Forum conferences offer industry professionals the latest petfood ingredient, processing and packaging technologies, product development processes, and practical knowledge from industry-leading petfood consultants, manufacturers, academians and suppliers.
Petfood Forum China is the newest addition to the Petfood Forum portfolio of live conferences and exhibitions, and the first event of its kind to be held in China specifically addressing the needs of petfood and pet treat manufacturers. Petfood Forum China will feature educational sessions presented by petfood industry experts, networking opportunities and the chance to visit vendors at Pet Fair Asia.
“As a unique global information provider to petfood and pet treat manufacturers and their partners, and with brands serving print, digital and live event content needs, our team believes it is important to be the first to enter China with our ability to serve the market and their needs,” says Steve Akins, vice president and publisher of Petfood Industry. “We are excited to partner with Pet Fair Asia in bringing Petfood Forum China to this fast growing market.”
According to Euromonitor International, China is the seventh fastest-growing petfood market, with a projected 7.7% compound annual growth rate through 2015. Euromonitor projects the China petfood market will reach US$476 million in sales by 2015.
“An extremely small percentage of registered pets in China are currently being fed manufactured petfood, but with rapid urbanization in the country, demand for petfood is increasing dramatically,” Akins says.
