In short: it is time to network again, to share experiences with colleagues and customers, and of course to write orders. Do you feel like it? Then quickly book a stand at the Dibevo Trade Fair, the most important and most enjoyable trade event for pet professionals in the Netherlands. Show that you are alive and kicking!

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 2021 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 will open an hour earlier than the 2017 edition on both days. Opening hours:
Sunday, 10 October: 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Monday, 11 October: 9:00 a.m. - 7:00 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 four free tickets (extra tickets are €15 per person) and non-members pay €25 and only €18 if they pre-register.
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 six days after National Pets’ Day, a day on which shops usually see high sales.
Good to know
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: ALIVE AND KICKING
Pet retail is alive like never before, yet pet professionals have barely spoken to each other in person over the past year. The Dibevo Trade Fair brings the entire industry back together in two pleasant days in the Broodfabriek in Rijswijk. Finally contact with (potential) customers again. That sounds good, doesn't it?
Good service and good products
The boom in pet retail did not come out of the blue, of course. During the corona period, many Dutch people opted for the special company of a pet and thanks to Dibevo's efforts, pet shops were considered essential stores. But it is of course important to continue to bind customers to you after corona. And that is possible with a combination of good service with an eye to animal welfare and high-quality products.
That is why it is so important that you as a supplier show yourself at the Dibevo Trade Fair in October. Book a stand and show that you are alive and kicking. Stand space is already available from 6 m2, so you hardly have an excuse not to be at the trade fair.
