Interpets ?International Fair for a Better Life with Pets? runs April 2-5 at Tokyo Big Sight.
More than 230 exhibitors from 15 countries and regions will showcase pet-related products and services, ideas, knowledge and inspirations from around the world for a more comfortable and high-quality lifestyle for pets, pet owners and potential pet owners.
The show this year takes place concurrently with two other pet-related fairs under the same roof titled AJPET (All Japan Pet Expo in Tokyo) and offers visitors more sourcing choices in one place. One of the concurrent fairs, FCI Japan International Dog Show organized by the Japan Kennel Club, is a competition for purebred dogs. Japan Pet Fair, organised by the Japan Pet Products Manufacturers Association, showcases all kinds of live pets. Interpets, organised by Mesago Messe Frankfurt Corp. and the Japan Pet Food Association, is the only international fair among the three, and provides a platform where new ideas and business can be generated by bringing together the fields of automotive, housing, interior design, fashion, IT, electronics, leisure and hospitality.
