ZOOMARK: SUCCESSFUL PARTICIPATION OF THE ITALIAN DELEGATION AT GLOBAL PET EXPO. 15,000 BUYERS AND OVER 1,000 EXHIBITORS ATTENDED THE ORLANDO SHOW
Great success for the “Made in Italy” at Global Pet Expo, the largest annual pet industry trade show. The event, which was held in March in Orlando (Florida, USA), hit record numbers: 1,087 exhibitors presented over 3,000 new products to 15,478 visitors, 6,710 of which from outside the U.S.A.
For the first time Zoomark International – the biannual trade show organized by BolognaFiere in collaboration with Promopet; the next being held in Bologna, on May 11-14, 2017 – took part in Global Pet Expo supporting the “Pavilion of Made in Italy”, a delegation of ten Italian manufacturers that attracted buyers from all parts of the world.
THE COMMENTS OF THE ITALIAN EXHIBITORS
“An experience that we will certainly repeat, we are happy with the results we got”, says the Agras Delic team. “Many are the companies that asked us to start a new partnership”, claims Iv San Bernard, followed by Mugue that confirms “We are satisfied with the contacts, which look quite promising”. The PetitAmis team stresses “the good organization and quality of the contacts”. The participation of the Italian companies was also a chance, as the Chemi-Vit team explained, “to better know and assess the U.S. and international market”, as well as “to understand the approach towards European products”, according to the Dorado team, and “to strongly widen up our business horizons”, as Officinalis explains. Very good was the response towards the Italian products. “They were very appreciated”, confirms the 2GPet Food team, since the American market, as the IMAC team explains, “demands products with the typical qualities and uniqueness of the Italian design” and because, according to Oceanlife, the buyers “confirmed they could not find alternatives of equal value in their markets”.
ZOOMARK AT THE MAJOR TRADE EVENTS WORLDWIDE
“The satisfaction of the ten companies that took part in Global Pet Expo is also ours!” claims Marco Momoli, Director of Business Unit Italia at BolognaFiere. “Zoomark’s participation in the major trade events in the pet industry worldwide with Italian delegations is a strategy that we confirm and plan to strengthen in view of our 2017 show.”
