Reshaping the Petcare industry through partnerships and disruptive innovation

Download 2019 Agenda
London, UK
27-28 February, 2020

“A very complete view on what's going on in terms of innovation in the Petcare category. ”

Guillaume Cretenot, Mars

Apply for the Best In Show Innovation Showcase where 12 of the most promising innovators in the Petcare industry are chosen by our Selection Committee to introduce their products on the main stage, in a quick-fire round of presentations.

Why Attend

Increasing pet ownership combined with an upsurge in purchasing power are just some of the drivers resulting in continued growth in the €39.5 European Pet space.

With the humanisation trend and changing consumer behaviours forcing some of the industries most seasoned pet brands to diversify their existing portfolio, partnering with an emerging disruptor has never been so crucial. In the last year, Pets at Home bought a stake in dog-walking service Tailster whilst Nestle Purina acquired a majority stake in direct-to-consumer dog nutrition business Tails.com illustrating a growing appetite for innovation from the industries major players.

The objectives of the Petcare Innovation Summit are to connect emerging pet brands with seasoned strategic players and financial buyers.  Our focus is on categories including pet food, veterinary health & nutrition, services, technology and accessories. This is the go-to meeting for those looking to meet prospective partners to help accelerate their businesses to the next level, as well as players seeking to build their investment or acquisition pipelines.

Previously, he worked in the Animal Health and Veterinary Laboratories Agency (AHVLA) where he was a senior member of staff engaged in leading research and surveillance programmes as well as part of the senior management team formulating strategy and implementing change. His interest in epidemiology grew from working in farm animal veterinary practice in the UK and in preventive veterinary medicine. A decade of overseas experience in Yemen, Zambia and Mexico working with poor rural communities underlined the important role that veterinary epidemiology plays in supporting animals in sustainable livelihoods and poverty alleviation. A professional life engaged with and leading multi-disciplinary teams makes Alex a natural proponent of the One Health perspective.

Become a Sponsor

Kisaco Research provides the much-needed platform on which industry executives can network, connect and learn from each other as well as meet potential industry partners.
Far from the typical ‘meet-and-greet’ exhibition experience, you – as a sponsor or exhibitor – will be positioned as a partner of the event with a focus on the benefits of your product and brand, rather than just a name on an exhibition list.

With our extensive marketing experience and strategy, your partnership with Kisaco Research will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts. We value your ROI and will work with you directly on your specific goals and targets – that’s why we take special care in finding the most relevant end-users to attend, so that your financial and resource investment is smartly allocated.
