List of finalists announced for PetQuip Awards 2019

Company: PetQuip

Unprecedented interest in pet industry’s awards event of the year.

Over 70 of the pet industry’s high achievers have been short-listed for the 2019 PetQuip Awards and will be waiting in anticipation at the PetQuip dinner at PATS, Telford in September to see who has scooped the top prizes this year.

Now in its seventh year, the awards have attracted an unprecedented level of interest this year with several hundreds of entries from a very diverse range of companies both large and small.   For the first time a number of overseas entries were received for the various product categories, reflecting the growing international importance of the PATS Telford trade show and recognition of the benefits of winning a PetQuip award.

According to Pat Flynn, PetQuip’s trade association manager: “Ticket sales for the awards’ dinner  started much earlier than usual, as more and more applicants are requesting to be seated with friends or customers from the industry at this entertaining, networking event.  As part of the evening’s attraction, the casino tables will be there by popular demand again and the appearance of a table magician will be one of the extra fun elements to be introduced this year.

“Competition for the awards in all eight categories promises to be fierce, which will make for a very exciting evening while providing a true reflection of the UK’s vibrant pet industry.”
