WHY SHOULD YOU EXHIBIT AT THE DIBEVO TRADE FAIR?
As an exhibitor at the Dibevo Trade Fair, you will have the opportunity to come in contact with more than 4,000 (potential) visitors thanks to the free food-and-drink concept, guaranteed to keep them on the show floor longer. Thinking of leaving at 4:20 p.m.? Why should you when you can enjoy a chat, a snack and a beverage?
This year, the trade fair will be occupying two large halls at the Broodfabriek in Rijswijk, offering a total capacity of 11,000 m2 of floor space. The venue is conveniently located just off the A4 motorway, and very easy to get to by car and public transport. There is also plenty of free parking available.
The trade fair is and remains the ideal place to introduce products and launch promotions. In fact, a survey among Dibevo members shows that visitors expect “their” suppliers to be present with a booth. Especially if that is a well-known party.
Food and drinks are free at the 2023 Dibevo Trade Fair. A light breakfast (coffee and a croissant) is also available for exhibitors and visitors at 8:00 a.m. Perfect for those wishing to avoid rush-hour traffic jams.
The Dibevo Trade Fair opens at 9:00 am on both days of the fair. These are the opening hours:
Sunday, 8 October: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Monday, 9 October: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
The combination of low admission prices and free food and drinks makes a visit to the trade fair extra appealing. Dibevo members will receive two free tickets (extra tickets are €17,50 per person etc. VAT). Non-members pay €27,50 excl. VAT.
Doing business in a positive atmosphere The atmosphere at the Dibevo Trade Fair is always excellent. Visitors are usually in a great mood, and are all the more so when the food and drinks are free, as will be the case this year. Additionally, the trade fair will be held four days after National Pets’ Day, a day on which shops usually see high sales.

Included in stand rental
As an exhibitor, you can choose whether to use your own stand or rent the standard stand construction for an additional fee.

Standard stand construction includes:
• Partition walls
• Frieze panel with company name
• One double spotlight per 6 m2 of stand space
For both stand construction and stand construction, catering is included in stand rental.
For all cancellations, the cancellation conditions from the Dibevo Trade Fair Regulations apply.
The majority of the visitors to the Dibevo Trade Fair work in the retail trade (70%). The remaining portion of the visitors are a mix of owners of boarding kennels, grooming salons, and suppliers, but also dog walking services, obedience schools, DIY stores with a pet and garden section, breeders, temporary employment agencies and the media.
NB: Children under 14 and dogs are not permitted at the Dibevo Trade Fair. Assistance dogs and guide dogs for the blind are naturally welcome.
EXHIBITION THEME: STILL GOING STRONG
When many things happen at the same time that have a major impact on your business and your private life, you speak of a rollercoaster. The characteristic of such a rollercoaster is that it flies very quickly over the rails, but eventually comes to a stop and peace returns. But today we are in a rollercoaster that seems to have no end station.
KEEP ON DOING BUSINESS
This continuous change demands a lot from the adaptability of all entrepreneurs in the chain. That means rethinking purchasing & ordering convenience, product range, shop design, digitization, marketing and customer focus. But at the same time, that also means: just keep doing what you're good at. And the Dibevo sector can do that like no other. Our sector is still going strong: don't give up, but keep on doing business.
And those who are still going strong will of course show themselves at the Dibevo Trade Fair. For over 80 years it has been the place where the entire pet industry comes together and sets the course for the following year. Not only a business fair, but above all a pleasant fair where there is plenty of room to catch up and where all food and drinks are included in the admission price.
And that’s special because no other pet trade fair in Europe offers such a full-service concept. Big advantage: visitors spend much longer on the exhibition floor and make more purchases from exhibiting suppliers.
