PATS will be attending Zoomark in Bologna, Italy, next month as part of the British Pavilion, where it will be encouraging international buyers to visit the Harrogate show on Sunday and Monday, September 15-16.
Last year the PATS Harrogate exhibition attracted 60 overseas visitors, including companies from Europe, Australia and America, representing a 100 per cent increase on 2011.
Overseas buyers will have exclusive use of the lounge, which is being sponsored by PetQuip. Visitors will be offered free tea and coffee, have free use of the internet, and have access to the services and advice provided by PetQuip ..
PATS Harrogate is promising to be the biggest exhibition yet with 110 exhibitors already having booked their stand.
Katie Goldsmith, sales director of exhibitor Collarways said: "At PATS we have the opportunity to meet in person some of our international customers, some for the first time, even though we have been supplying them some while. It's great to put a face to the name.
"The Collarways stand is always busy as the show attracts a wide spectrum of different buyers from all around the world. We are really looking forward to introducing our latest products at Harrogate to both UK and overseas visitors, in time for the busy Winter season."
