Surpassed expectations at Interzoo 2022
About the event
Dates24.05.2022 – 27.05.2022
COLLAR Company, the pet product manufacturer from Ukraine, visited Interzoo 2022 in Nuremberg, Germany. Interzoo is the world’s leading trade fair for pet suppliers that gathered 1 300 exhibitors from different countries and continents. Pet suppliers from over 60 countries were able to demonstrate their products, cooperate, and discuss the latest trends and innovations. According to the organizers, the number of Interzoo visitors was 30 000.
Despite tough times and difficulties, the COLLAR team tackled the challenges and represented Ukrainian innovative pet products to the whole world. We displayed WAUDOG’s collars, leashes and harnesses, fitness tool PULLER, the lightest pet clothes AiryVest, dog toys Flyber, LIKER, PitchDog, the most durable pet accessories EVOLUTOR, aquarium goods AquaLighter, wooden cat litters SuperCat and the new collection Bravery with national ornaments and designs. Also, we introduced an officially licensed collection with Rick and Morty designs.
An immensely important factor is that we started the charity project called “Pets Patrol” to help animals and pet parents affected by war in the areas with the most intense fighting. Therefore, we introduced it to our mediapartners and the world.
Our booth gathered a lot of attention and visitors, who came to support us and express admiration that we managed to participate and show Ukrainian pet products. Visiting Interzoo 2022 enabled the COLLAR team to conduct meetings at a strong international level, and discuss the impact of war and how it affected the lives of the team and Company.
“The COLLAR team always tries to go beyond expectations and fulfill customers’ needs, and this year we received so much support and attention that exceeded any intentions,” –
Yuriy Sinitsa, the Company’s founder, stated at Interzoo 2022.
The COLLAR’s main office and manufacturing are located in Chernihiv, one of the hardest-hit cities in Ukraine. Employees had to live in bomb shelters and cellars with their families, and were forced to flee their homes to save lives. Displaying products at Interzoo and telling the world our story was the common cause that reunited the team in Nurnberg. We haven’t seen each other for many months, and we’re really happy that this trade fair brought all of us together again.
Facilitating additional business connections is a great chance for us to revive COLLAR and restore full working order as soon as possible. The company has a lot to offer. Receiving so much support and good feedback inspires us to cope with tough times and withstand the storm. We want to thank everyone for their support, sincere words, and kind remarks. COLLAR Company and team stay strong, we continue our mission — making pets and people happy.
