Virtual Petindex is open for registrations

The Pet Industry Federation (PIF) has announced that Virtual Petindex (VPI), the UK pet industry's virtual trade show, is now open for visitor registrations.
With live days scheduled for 11 and 12 October, VPI will provide a platform for visitors to access new suppliers without all the associated costs of visiting a traditional trade show.

The event will engage pet industry exhibitors and visitors from all over the world in one virtual venue and will enable exhibitors to talk to trade visitors through live interaction tools, which can be accessed from any device.

Visitors attend the show for free and can not only browse the stands and take away relevant information on the companies and brands on offer, but can also watch a range of live and 'on-demand' webinars on topics relevant to the pet industry and delivered by high-quality speakers.
Nigel Baker, PIF CEO said: "In the face of the continued disruption to the pet industry caused by the Covid-19 restrictions, VPI provides a lifeline for businesses in our industry to connect with other businesses, both in the UK and overseas.  Building on the success of our first event in June which attracted over 60 trade stands and had over 1 700 visitor registrations, we are adding new features such as a new product area, improving navigation and limiting numbers in each 'exhibition hall' to improve the experience for both visitors and exhibitors alike."
Trade visitors can access free registration, webinars and presentations from industry experts, new products, product promotions and discounts, online ordering and real-time communication with exhibitors.
Virtual Petindex will remain open for 14 days after the live days so that buyers and exhibitors can still connect after the trade show. To find out more about the VPI and to register to attend, please visit
