Press Release for immediately release

Virtual Buyer Platform to be launched first
Bangkok, July 10, 2020
Despite Asia is getting more COVID-free countries and some international travels may soon be restarting. The
organizers of PET FAIR SEA have decided to postpone the launch of the trade fair this October to 20-22 January
Instead of hosting a physical live-event October, VNU will launch a virtual buyer fair called PreConnect to be held on
the original opening date, October 14, 2020. This platform enables fast-growing buyer demand to meet new brands
and products virtually. The virtual PreConnect is a 1-day event invites the top influential buyers from 15 countries and
is designed to help both buyers and exhibitors to start exploring business opportunities before meeting face to face
next January.
“As a fast-growing community, we believe in change by innovation. PET FAIR SEA represents brands from across
the world. The international community, in particular from Europe and North America are major contributors. We
believe that exhibitors should have at least 3 months’ time to prepare for quality and international trade fair. We
choose to give more time for the recovery of international travel. With postponing the physical trade fair, we still support
our exhibitors and buyers to organize their participation and connecting them ahead of the physical meetings through
our virtual PreConnect platform”, says Manuel Madani, who is leading PET FAIR SEA.
The PreConnect buyer platform is coming to the market by the end of August 2020. It’s offered as a service to registered
exhibitors and new-comers that can’t travel yet. The physical trade fair PET FAIR SEA together with WSAVA
Masterclass, The PETXPERT, and seminars will be taking place on 20-22 of January 2021. The online registration
will be re-opened again from Oct 1, 2020. For those attendees and visitors who already preregistered, the information
will be automatically transferred to the show in January 2021.
