IBERZOO+PROPET, the Pet Industry International Trade Fair, organised by IFEMA MADRID and sponsored by AMVAC and AEDPAC, held its 2021 event from the 17 to 19 June last year in digital format on the IBERZOO+ PROPET LIVEConnect platform with quite positive results for the sector.
Over these three days, over two thousand industry professionals signed up on the platform to make contacts, access content, activities and events of the trade fair, such as the Vetmadrid Congress (AMVAC), AEDPAC Forum, new products gallery, Vet Job Classroom, Veterinarian Classroom, Solidarity Pet and dog grooming workshops.
In the words of the trade fair director, Lola González, “we are satisfied with the reception of IBERZOO+PROPET LIVE Connect. Without a doubt, the response by participating companies and visitors was quite positive, which strengthens our conviction that it will be a tool that will efficiently contribute to improving the in-person event, much-awaited by the sector, as it allows us to expand audiences, in space and time, and thus grow business opportunities for exhibitor companies”. The activities carried out were fundamental to the starting-up of the LIVEConnect community therefore we thank all collaborators for their contributions.”
She adds, “Therefore, we had a very positive outcome from this digital launch and we encourage activity to continue throughout the year in the digital realm, given all of the advantages it provides for the industry, and further professionals who are interested in becoming part of this sector community are encouraged to join, as it will keep professional interaction alive until the next in-person edition of the trade fair is held”.
