Why exhibit at PET South America?

PET South America is the largest trade show in Latin America gathering the entire pet and veterinary production chain, including hygiene and beauty, health, nutrition, equipment, accessories and services. Moreover, it is considered the fifth largest industry event in the world. Every year, the show welcomes over 21,000 visitors, with a qualified public of professionals and entrepreneurs, such as veterinarians, merchants, distributors, groomers, trainers, breeders, retailers and wholesalers.

In addition, the event provides knowledge, with talks and congresses with professionals who are nationally and internationally renowned, further fostering the market. PET South America offers personal and professional growth for participants.

Another important point worth mentioning is that companies can do more than show their products. Exhibitors welcome different suppliers and prospect opportunities and new customers.

Visitor Testimonials

"We always visit the show in search of information and new products. I think that this edition of PET South America is one of the best in the last seven years. The first day is packed; we noticed new companies among others that are back again, in addition to the aquarium area."
