22 August 2019 – Bangkok, Thailand

South-East Asia builds its first international business hub for the pet industry in 2020. Today’s pet industry is united more than ever to bring global expertise and brands to South-East Asia.

In this rapid developing region consisting of 650 million inhabitants, the middle class is driving growth in the pet industry. Pet Fair Asia (Shanghai), the largest exhibition for pet supplies globally, welcomes every year new records of South-East Asian exporters and buyers. Businesses from across South-East Asia serve market’s demanding pet owners and need to keep up with their evolving needs. With innovation as the best option to differentiate from the competition, professionals are actively seeking for new brands and products annually. Pet Fair Asia is building the South-East Asian pet business hub. It envisions building a world-class trade-fair in October 2020. The Pet Fair South-East Asia will be connected to markets in the North America, Europe, East-Asia and emerging South-Asia / Middle-East.

Building and introducing brands to new markets requires an even more innovative market place. South-East Asian market size is still relatively small, compared with other parts of the world such as in the USA and Europe. However growth will be realized by adding value to distribution and certainly through education of retailers and pet owners. For that reason, leadership is required and Pet Fair South-East Asia will take brands to the right level of influence. South-East Asia shall not become a commodity driven trading region but instead of market-zone for the pet industry, driven innovation.

Pet Fair South-East Asia (South-East Asia) will be a global initiative, driving change in the pet industry with the support of launch partners including leading global brands and institutions. Organized by VNU, known as organizers of VIV Asia and Pet Fair Asia trade shows, Pet Fair South-East Asia will do its utmost to bring innovative leadership to the region. Supported by 21 regional associations, media partners and the Asia Pet Alliance, Pet Fair South-East Asia will take place on October 14 to 16, 2020 in Bangkok, Thailand.

Pet Fair South-East Asia will be a unique business to business trade-fair connected to existing network of consumer events, driving innovation downstream to pet owners. Pet Fair South-East Asia will use its global network, connecting overseas markets to South-East Asia. A world-class conference focusing on pet health, novelty ingredients and business trends will take place along with the show, inspiring entrepreneurs from the region and beyond into new directions.

Common visionaries:

Global pet industries bridged South-East Asia

Dr. Shane Ryan, President of World Small Animal Veterinary Association (WSAVA)

“An emergent middle class with increased societal affluence coupled with a greater awareness of animal welfare will mean a greater demand for high quality companion animal veterinarians & veterinary services in South East Asia. This demand cannot currently be met by the veterinary profession in many areas. Improved undergraduate education with a focus on companion animals is needed, along with post graduate training & continuing education for practitioners. This, however, will take time & utilize overseas expertise & tele-medicine in its various forms will assist in the short to medium term
