Why Attend

With 68% of USA households owning at least one pet, according to the American Pet Products Association, the pampering of pets has become a lucrative consumer trend, with the global pet market estimated to be worth $109 billion.

From momentous transactions such as General Mills’ acquisition of Blue Buffalo and J.M. Smucker’s acquisition of Ainsworth Pet Nutrition, to a flurry of minority investments such as Softbanks’ investment in Wag and Main Post Partners’ investment in Nulo, it is clear that strategic buyers, venture capital and private equity alike continue to have a strong and growing appetite for the pet industry.  

The Pets & Money Summit is an exclusive one-day event, connecting industry executives from strategic buyers, financial buyers and pet care brands.

The event will showcase the latest innovations disrupting the industry, explore key trends and consumer priorities, and identify actionable strategies you can use to grow your business or secure your next acquisition target.

This is your chance to - 

  • Understand how changing trends in the pet industry such as the rise of ecommerce and direct-to-consumer selling should shape your M&A decisions and business’ growth strategy.
  • Determine what strategic buyers and financial buyers are looking for, to ensure you have the competitive edge over other pet brands looking for investment or acquisition.
  • Discover and personally connect with the hottest pet brands, ripe for investment and acquisition to enhance your M&A pipeline.
  • Establish an optimal strategy for growth, reoccurring revenue and omnichannel distribution, from the lessons of industry leaders and the perspective of established pet retailers.
  • Meet with your pet care networking wish list, through our private meeting scheduler application, to find your next business opportunity.

MAKE THE RIGHT CONNECTIONS

Make the most valuable connections possible with your bespoke meeting scheduler.

With free access to the MEETING MOJO platform, you can create a bespoke meeting schedule for the summit, ensuring you connect with the industry stakeholders that are most important in building your business.

MEETING MOJO gives you access to the entire attendee list, allowing you to message and invite people to connect during the formal meeting sessions run throughout the day. You will also have additional time during our informal networking sessions.

12 private meetings are available for each guest.

Become a Sponsor or Exhibitor

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 the conference will grant you a sponsorship package that is an extension and enhancement of your current marketing and branding efforts.

CONTACT US: Ask us about the different ways you can get involved.

Contact our sponsorship team to find out more about each package by emailing [email protected] or by calling: +44 (0)20 3696 2920.
