At the beginning of February, the Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Zoo­logischer Fachbetriebe GmbH (WZF), the organiser of Interzoo, announced a new record by surpassing the 2 000 exhibitor mark. Due to the continuing high demand, even the last available exhibition spaces were taken a few days later. Well over 2 000 companies from around 70 countries will be exhibiting in 14 exhibition halls covering more than 140 000 m2 of gross exhibition space. “Sold-out Interzoo halls with record numbers of exhibitors, exhibition space and international spread show the enormous appeal of Interzoo for the conti­nu­ously growing pet industry worldwide,” says Gordon Bonnet, managing director of WZF and ZZF (German Pet Trade & Industry Association and conceptual spon­sor of Interzoo). “There is no better opportunity in the world for trade visitors to experience the incredible variety of new products and exciting companies up close, to network and to be inspired!”
