The Pet Industry Federation (PIF) announced last week that in the face of the continued global spread of COVID-19 and the current UK lockdown, Petindex, which includes the British Dog Grooming Championship and the PIF Awards, has been postponed.
The 2021 Petindex date will be 18-19 April at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes.
In place of this year’s Petindex, however, PIF is pleased to announce the launch of a virtual trade show – Virtual Petindex – which is being scheduled for the 14-15 June 2020. This event will combine seminars and trade stands that visitors can visit using their laptop or mobile phone. It will be fully interactive and allow visitors the opportunity to engage with trade stands, as if at a face-to-face show, but without the need or cost of travel and accommodation.
PIF will be notifying delegates, speakers, exhibitors and other service providers directly with more information and the next steps to participate in this exciting new venture.
The PIF Awards will be re-scheduled to take place later this year during the Glee/PawExpo trade show on Wednesday 16 September.
