Pet Fair Asia 2014 adds new petfood and other exhibit areas

Petfood suppliers, veterinary products, small animals focus of new sections

Pet Fair Asia 2014 (PFA), being held August 21-24, at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition & Convention Center, is expanding with three new exhibiting areas: petfood suppliers row, veterinary products and food and accessories for small-sized pets.

The 2013 show had 600 exhibiting companies from 23 countries, up 20% year-on-year. More than 40,000 visitors attended the show, including 15,000 professionals from 43 countries. Sixty-five percent of exhibitors re-booked on the spot for a 2014 booth, according to organizers.

Petfood suppliers row will feature additives, machinery and packaging relevant to the industry. The area aims to highlight companies' products and know-how for a wide audience as China's petfood industry continues to grow significantly. In addition, the third Petfood Forum China will be held concurrently with PFA on August 22. Featuring nutritionists and suppliers, Petfood Forum will be an opportunity to catch up on industry best practices, develop relationships among Chinese pet industry leaders or simply expand a company's professional network. Petfood additives, processing machinery, packing techniques, and products and services will all be on display.

As part of the new veterinary products exhibit, the 7th Shanghai Pet Health Care Seminar is expected to draw 800 vets, roughly 250 of which are directors or managers of pet hospitals. Attendees will also join the 1st Annual Meeting to discuss issues on management and operation in pet hospitals. Pet hospital equipment, surgery machinery, pet medicine, bio-products, health food, prescription feed and detection paper and reagents will be on display.

Cages, toys, supplies, pets, food, snacks and health food for small-sized pets will be the focus on the food and accessories for small-sized pets section of the show.
