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.
