About Petfood Forum
Petfood Forum conferences are the only events of their kind for the global petfood manufacturing industry, offering content and learning opportunities for petfood professionals as well as unique networking opportunities with their peers. The annual Petfood Forum and Petfood Workshop conferences have been taking place every year for more than 20 years in the US (in the Chicago suburbs) and have grown each year, even during the recent economic crisis.
The Petfood Forum line of conferences also includes one-day events outside North America, including Petfood Forum Europe, Petfood Forum Asia and Petfood Forum China. These are held in partnership with other shows — for example, Petfood Forum Asia is held every two years in Bangkok, Thailand, in conjuntion with Victam Asia. It will take place next in April 2014. Petfood Forum China is a new conference debuting in Shanghai in October 2012 in partnership with Pet Fair Asia. Petfood Forum Europe has been held in partnership with Victam International, including in 2007 in Utrecht, Netherlands, and in 2011 in Cologne, Germany.
