The U.S. Commercial Service in Milan is organizing, in cooperation with Imex Management, a U.S. Pavilion at the 20th edition of Zoomark International that will take place in Bologna (Italy), May 15-17, 2023. Zoomark 2023 is a TEPP certified show.
Zoomark is the largest trade show for pet products in Southern Europe and in the Mediterranean region and it hosted every other year: this year over 850 exhibitors from 50 Countries and more than 28,000 qualified buyers from 85 Countries are expected. Compared to the last pre-Covid edition (2019), the 2023 event has more exhibitors and two extra halls (seven in total), new international delegations and several countries exhibiting at Zoomark for the first time, such as Greece, Thailand, and Mexico, along with the established ones from the US, Canada, Great Britain, China, India, the Czech Republic, and Brazil. Zoomark 2023 already looks to be the biggest edition yet and figures keep growing, confirming Zoomark as the leading pet industry event in Europe in 2023.
Zoomark International is an excellent opportunity for American SMEs to enter the Italian and European markets. The U.S.A. Pavilion at Zoomark represents a unique trade show for American producers of pet products to explore new markets and make contact with potential international partners.
Our office offers several benefits to U.S. exhibitors before, during and after the show: first, we manage an extensive promotional campaign reaching out to pet industry leads and press prior to the show to promote U.S. exhibitors on the U.S. Commercial Service website, as well as through our European network of offices; we will have buyer delegation recruitment from CS Spain and CS Czech Republic; we conduct an extensive social media campaign; we organize a networking reception in the lounge of the U.S. Pavilion the first day of the show; and we will be at the show during the three days to provide on-site support forpromotion of U.S. companies and products, along with CS Spain and Czech Republic’s colleagues.
You may want to see the short video we recorded in 2019 edition inside the U.S.A. Pavilion showing the main benefits of participation.
We are reaching you out to inform you that IMEX Management still has some space available in the U.S.A. Pavilion.
