Invitation to Interzoo 2010


Dear Sir or Madam,

The 31st Interzoo, the world’s biggest exhibition for pet supplies, takes place in the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg from 13–16 May 2010. More than 1,450 exhibitors from some 50 countries offer an unrivalled overview of the new products for pets. We would like to invite you to our press conferences to brief you on the latest trends in keeping pets, the current German and international pet statistics and market data, and the 31st Interzoo.

The guided tour for the press is also interesting for editors, TV and photo journalists: Besides vivid examples of the fascination of keeping pets, including a demonstration by Yvo Antoni and his dog Prima Donna, the winners of the RTL television talent show “Das Supertalent 2009”, the exhibitors present this year’s new products in the pet accessories, pet care and food segments.
