Instituto Pet Brasil (IPB) brings an unprecedented business-oriented event to the Brazilian pet sector. The International Pet Meeting 2020 takes place on April 16, during the SuperPet program, in Campinas (SP). The idea is to bring together buyers and suppliers from all segments focused on products and services for pets, with a difference: in addition to the focus on finished products, it will also offer attention to the purchase and sale of raw materials.
“For this first edition, we chose to act in partnership with SuperPet, an event that is part of the sector's calendar and is known in Brazil as whole - explains Martina Campos, executive director of Instituto Pet Brasil - after the first edition, the idea is to organize meetings under the International Pet Meeting banner within other events around the country ”.
Business rounds will include exporters, importers, distributors and the supply chain, with potential buyers from countries that are focus for Brazilian companies, such as the Latin American market, in addition to Russia, Eastern Europe and Middle East.
In addition to acquiring experience and contacts with Brazilian and foreign businessmen, participants will also receive a series of advantages and benefits with IPB's commercial intelligence service with updated information, training opportunities, statistics, trends and market indications. It is not mandatory to be an IPB member to participate in the International Pet Meeting 2020.
"If the company already exports or is interested in exporting, if it is an importer, or still needs to study new suppliers and new technologies both in Brazil and abroad, this is the ideal event”, says Campos.
International Pet Meeting 2020 was created to serve and strengthen one of the main pet markets in the world, since Brazil is only behind the United States in market share. Brazil represents 5% of the world share, ahead of economies such as the United Kingdom, Germany and France.
According to IPB projections, the sector closes 2019 with an estimated turnover of 35.4 billion BRL. Consolidated revenue for 2018 was 34.4 billion BRL.
The Brazilian pet population is approximately 139.3 million animals. Currently, the entity estimates that there are 54.2 million dogs in the country; 39.8 million birds; 23.9 million cats; 19.1 million fish and 2.3 million reptiles and small mammals.
