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 roller coaster 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.
