The Pet Industry Federation (PIF) has announced that the 2015 Pet Industry Federation Forum & Awards will take place from Tuesday 17 – Wednesday 18 November at the Crowne Plaza City Centre Hotel, Liverpool.

The event brings together the whole UK pet industry and provides invaluable networking and learning opportunities. The Pet Industry Awards Dinner, announcing the winners of this year’s awards, on the evening of Tuesday 17th will provide a glittering and memorable backdrop to the main Forum conference during the day. For the first time, a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event is being planned ahead of the Forum on Monday 16 November to get the whole event off to a flying start.

Nigel Baker, PIF CEO said: ‘The organising committee for this year’s Forum & Awards felt that a move to a city such as Liverpool would give the whole event a new dynamic. The transport connections to the city are fantastic; and, with its rich cultural heritage, the city will provide some superb theming opportunities that will make the event bigger and better than ever. We will be making changes to the Pet Industry Awards this year, such as increasing the categories and Awards on offer in order to represent as much of the UK pet industry as possible; and we will be developing a Forum programme that brings in European retailers and cover topics such as labelling, social media and licensing. ’

Details of the topics being discussed at the Forum will be announced in the coming months, as well news of how to enter the 2015 Pet Industry Awards. If you would like to know about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Alexandra Baker at; 01234 224507.
