Pet Fair Asia, the leading international pet industry exhibition in Asia, is set to return to Shanghai for its highly anticipated 2023 edition. As one of the largest scale platforms for pet product manufacturers, suppliers and pet enthusiasts, Pet Fair Asia is proud to announce another year of showcasing the latest trends, innovations and products in the pet industry.
After a period marked by challenges and uncertainties, China’s economic ties with the world are growing at fast speed, as COVID-19 restrictions ease and international flight connections resume. According to National Bureau of Statistics, China GDP grew by 4.5% y-oy in the first quarter of 2023 and its economy got off to a solid start as consumers went on a spending spree after three years of spending limitations. In particular, the pet market continuous its remarkable growth path and reconfirms the country’s high importance in this industry at a world level. China’s pet industry was worth RMB 298.8 billion (US$44.4 billion) in 2020 and is projected to reach RMB 445.6 billion (US$66.1 billion) by 2023. With young, well-educated and wealthier pet owners driving China’s pet ownership, the industry is set to continue seeing explosive growth also in the next decade.
This favorable environment has accelerated the demand for participation at Pet Fair Asia with applications pouring in from all over the world. Worldwide renowned brands have already confirmed their presence at the 2023 edition, underscoring the show's global significant attractiveness. To name a few–Boehringer Ingelheim, Gimborn, Flexi, Hagen, Instinct, Iv San Bernard, K9, Kong, Orijen, Purina, Stella & Chewy’s, Symrise, Versele-Laga, Vitakraft, Ziwi–will present their latest products at the show this year.
Participants attending Pet Fair Asia 2023 will have the unique opportunity to network, exchange ideas and experience the latest industry trends in China and beyond. To ensure a smooth and warm welcome for international visitors returning to China after a prolonged absence, the organizer has put in place the "Welcome back to Shanghai" hospitality package. This comprehensive initiative provides a range of hospitality services, including assistance in applying for Chinese visas, discounts at hotels and restaurants, entertaining sightseeing activities, and much more. Moreover, visitors can take advantage of preferred travel packages organized in collaboration with various travel agencies, allowing them to combine their business trip to Pet Fair Asia with a summer holiday exploring some of Chin’s and Southeast Asia's most alluring destinations.
