7th IIPTF @ Pune: In a League of its Own!

BeyondHeadlines News Desk

India International Pet Trade Fair (IIPTF) is South Asia’s only pet trade fair and India’s largest pet event. An exhibition-cum-trade show dedicated to the pet vertical in India, it is a quality-driven event at par with international standards. The Indian pet industry has evolved into an $800-million-plus industry, and is comprised of large multinationals, as well as, domestic players. Continuing its growth trend, the industry is expected to continue to register strong double digit retail value growth in 2014. Therefore, a trade-oriented platform like IITPF is not only desirable but also requisite to spur the facilitation and growth of this sector.

7th IIPTF @ Pune: In a League of its Own!At the Venky’s Presents 7th IIPTF Pune Edition, January 17-19 at Magarpatta City in Pune, unrolled into a truly international affair. The fair has seen participation by more than 85 companies from across India and overseas. The fair showcases an exhaustive range of pet products and pet-pertinent services. From the essential to the eccentric — from pet health and nutrition products to vacation and exclusive stylingstudios. IIPTF has forged relations with various international trade fairs and entities. Its international partners in its 7th edition include Zoomark, Italy; CIPS, China; Iberzoo, Barcelona; Pet Asia & Aquarama, Singapore; ParkZoo, Moscow; Busan International Companion Animal Show, Korea; Dogtech, Australia; and Zoosphere 2013, Russia. Therefore, a substantial increase in the number of international exhibitors and trade visitors flocked IIPTF 2014.

The IIPTF Buyer-Seller Meet has been organised to encourage both overseas and Indian companies to meet and discuss common areas of business on the side lines of the fair. The meet represents an ideal platform for Indian buyers and sellers. Through the meet, international trade visitors seeking potential buyers in India can meet prospective clients and forge business relations. Indian exporters looking for foreign buyers can network with international businessmen. Further, Indian manufacturers and importers wishing to sell products within the country can network with retailers and distributors to generate viable leads for business.

The first-ever ‘Pet Counselling and Breeding Seminar’, an ultimate guide for puppy buying, rearing and breeding, aimed at spreading awareness about the importance of training, grooming and regular health check-ups of pets. The seminar-cum-counselling session addresses important issues about companion, therapy, service, breeding and show dogs. Experts educate pet owners and breeders about many important aspects of pet ownership — from ‘how to breed good dogs’ to ‘ethical breeding practices’ and ‘how to choose a show dog’.

The fair has recognised the efforts and participation of its valued exhibitors and like every year, this year too awarded the movers and shakers. Organised by Creature Companion, a pet care magazine published by L.B. Associates Pvt Ltd, the fair has been compared to established and reputed events such as the national book fair and auto expo.

IIPTF takes this opportunity to thank our sponsors, especially Venky’s and our venue partner, Magarpatta City.
