Virtual Petindex proves to be a success

Hundreds of visitors logged on to the UK's first virtual trade show, Virtual Petindex, over its two live days from 14 to 15 June. The online event, organised by the Pet Industry Federation, was the first of its kind for the UK pet industry and was sponsored by eBay UK Ltd.

Visitors had the opportunity to browse over 60 stands from the UK and overseas, including countries such as Canada, Germany, New Zealand and Switzerland. They were also able to watch webinars in the auditorium, which was packed throughout the live show days with talks, panel discussions and grooming demonstrations. Visitors can continue to access the Virtual Petindex platform to browse stands and watch the webinars until the platform closes completely on 15 July.
The next Virtual Petindex event will be held on 11 and 12 October. To secure a place and find out more, e-mail daniel.everett(at)
