Pet and Animal Wellbeing at Glee
With Glee just weeks away (27th-29th June 2023, NEC Birmingham), -the show’s sector PAW – Pet and Animal Wellbeing - will bring pet care to the forefront with the best pet suppliers presenting the latest products to garden centre buyers who are looking to capitalise on the ‘pet pound’.
This June, leading companies and brands are expected to make their home within PAW with product categories on show that tap into the latest domestic animal ownership trends. The major sectors within the market include natural pet food, pet accessories, clothing, luxury gifts and garden wildlife. And with pet ownership on the rise and a rediscovered connection with nature, well-stocked retailers could well reap the benefits.
