Pet Fair South East Asia, which takes place in Bangkok from October 30–November 1, 2024, has previously proven popular with Australian exhibitors.

The three-day tradeshow will unite key distribution, retail, and veterinary players, with over 400 exhibitors from over 45 countries exhibiting their products in search of distribution, retail, and sourcing partnerships.

Chris Worthington, Chief Operating Officer at Nature’s Best, exhibited at the 2023 show and said they were pleasantly surprised by the number of quality visitors who had come to their stand.

“A highlight of the event from a business perspective, was talking to people who were very interested in products coming out of Australia and the perceived natural quality of our products. From a personal perspective, the ‘One Night in Bangkok’ networking event was great.”

As well as exposure to the expected 15,000 visitors, Pet Fair South East Asia will also host over 30 insightful conference sessions to inspire thought and innovation.

Worthington recommended Australian exhibitors and visitors attend the show if they are looking to target the Asian region for exports.

“There were also a number of visitors from the Middle East as well, so that mix was different to what we saw at Interzoo this year.

“As it was our first time at the event, it takes time to develop relationships with new customers, and that work is ongoing. I think the measure of success will need to be looked at over a longer time frame.”

Pet Fair South East Asia takes place from October 30 to November 1 at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre.
