Supply meets demand under the best of circumstances, and you can move products off of shelves quite easily. Not to mention that you have access to key international markets, which helps you to position your brand globally. As an exhibitor, you’re in the perfect position to generate sales leads and add clients to your professional network. Not convinced? Have a look at the early numbers for 2022, which is still a pandemic year and organisers don’t expect pre-COVID numbers:
- 1300+ international exhibitors from 60+ countries;
- 28,000+ international trade visitors from 126 countries.
- 105,000 square metres of gross exhibition area
Interzoo has been going strong since 1953 and enjoys the reputation as the definitive market for the global pet industry. Over the decades, the exhibition has had many homes until it landed at Messe Nuremberg in 1988 and the move stuck. Editions are held every two years. Interzoo has ensured its relevance and popularity through the sheer diversity of its product portfolio that includes pet food products, grooming aids and accessories for four-legged pets, birds, ornamental fish and terrarium animals. In recent years, the product segments for equestrian sports, sport fishing and gifts have grown in popularity. Buyers can also find a lot of equipment and machinery for pet food technology, shop fittings and packing.
It’s where you can expect strong sales and direct feedback from buyers. Not to mention see what’s becoming a big hit. Adding a whole other dimension to the experience is the fact that visitors have the ability to test out all the products.
Who Are You Going to Meet?
Let’s break down the visitor and exhibitor profiles at Interzoo. Both groups show that this is a truly international event – only 344 exhibitors from the 1990 total exhibitors come from Germany and the number for trade visitors is 9935 out of a total of 28,271 visitors. Which are the countries with the most visitors outside Germany? The list includes Spain, Italy, France, the Netherlands, the UK, China, Poland and Russia. In terms of regions, after Germany, the highest percentage of trade visitors is from European countries at 42%. Now let’s look at visitor branches. Around 75% of all trade visitors are involved in pet supply – pet stores, from drugstores, do-it-yourself stores, garden centres, retail food trade and online retailers. These are then followed by pet grooming salons and animal care providers.
The chief motivation for attendance is placing orders, reconnecting with existing partners as well as sourcing new suppliers. Overall visitor satisfaction remains quite high thanks to the quality of brands that regularly have a booth at Interzoo. You’ll be side by side with established names such as TRIXIE Heimtierbedarf, HUNTER International, Büngener pet health, Interquell Petfood, Flamingo Pet Products, HAGEN Deutschland, Dr. Clauder solutions for pets, Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association Ltd (OATA) and European Pet Organization (EPO).
Additional Value of Attending

Sustainability is on the minds of everyone, regardless of industry, and conversations about new strategies to reduce the industry’s environmental impact will be held at the Interzoo Sustainability Session. In 2022, the session will hold a presentation by the Sustainable Transformation Lab of the Antwerp Management School (AMS), which details results of the latest Interzoo Sustainability Study.

The Outlook for 2022
Organisers are quite happy with the early registrations and bookings for exhibition space. You can expect a solid return to form for Interzoo and the pet food and care industry as a whole. Now is the time to address technological trends and practical solutions for disruptions in supply chains.
As always, Interzoo embraces the global market and opening day will run five Interzoo Country Sessions discussing trends and market data in western Europe, Brazil, Scandinavia, China and the US. This year’s edition will also serve as a host for international industry organisations to meet face to face. Organisers have announced that the International Pet Associations (IPAC) Summit and the annual meeting of the European Pet Organization (EPO) and Ornamental Fish International (OFI) are going to be held during Interzoo 2022.
