Winning an award in the PATS New Products Showcase can be the launchpad to huge sales.
Manufacturers can be confident that successful products have a great chance of becoming bestsellers because a panel of independent pet retailers decides the awards. And past winners admit that winning an award can certainly increase the profile of the items to the trade.
The New Products Showcase is a great opportunity for visiting retailers to see the new products they will be stocking for the coming season.
The Showcase is designed to help them find the latest and most exciting products to hit the pet trade, as they are gathered together in one, extensive display in the Surrey Hall’s Brasseries Bar.
Once visitors have seen what they like, they then have the opportunity of visiting the stand of the manufacturer or supplier of that product to discuss it in more detail. There is an information card beside each product, giving details such as suggested retail price and where to find the supplier.
All entries in the Showcase will judged by the panel of retailer judges for the New Products Awards on the first morning of the show, so the results will be known and highlighted throughout the Surrey and Esher Halls for the rest of the exhibition. The Awards will be presented at the New Products Showcase display at lunchtime on Tuesday, March 21.
Entries will be displayed under the following award categories
- Cat Product
- Dog Accessory Product
- Dog Food or Treat Product
- Bird Product
- Small Animal Product
- Pet Care Product
- Grooming Product
- Giftware Product
