Interzoo 2014 attendance up 2% from previous show

33rd edition of show saw more than 37,000 visitors from more than 120 countries

Interzoo’s 33rd edition ended on June 1, 2014, with more than 37,000 visitors from more than 120 countries attending—2% more than in 2012, according to organizers. Those in attendance brought themselves up-to-date on everything the world has to offer in pet supplies at the international tradeshow, held in in Nuremberg.

About 1,700 exhibitors (up 10% from 2012) from 63 countries showed their range of petfood, grooming supplies and accessories on over 110,000 square meters of exhibition space. “The proportion of exhibitors from abroad rose to 82%," said Hans-Jochen Büngener, chairman of the Interzoo Exhibition Committee. "Most exhibitors came from the following countries: Germany, China, USA, Italy, United Kingdom and Netherlands.” The fair’s international representation went up 3% over 2012 numbers.

Sixty-nine percent of the show’s visitors came from abroad: According to the preliminary figures of fair’s last day, the share of international visitors increased by 7%, while attendance from Germany dropped by 8%. “Due to the increasing consolidation of the trade we expected an even more pronounced reduction, and are therefore all the happier about the additional international visitors,“ said Büngener. Most trade visitors came from Germany, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands.

The next Interzoo will be held May 26–29, 2016, at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg.
