As a consequence of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and in the interests of trade fair participants within the pet industry, WZF (Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Zoologischer Fachbetriebe GmbH), organiser of Interzoo
, and BolognaFiere S.p.A., organiser of ZOOMARK INTERNATIONAL
, have decided to modify their event calendar for 2021 and 2022. From June 1 to 4, 2021, Interzoo digital will take place as a purely online event, while ZOOMARK INTERNATIONAL will be welcoming the pet industry back to Bologna, Italy, from November 10 to 12, 2021. From May 24 to 27, 2022 Interzoo will return as an in-person event in Nuremberg, Germany. The new trade show schedule re-establishes the original calendar, which sees ZOOMARK INTERNATIONAL being held in odd years and Interzoo in even years. BolognaFiere and WZF are confident that the digital formats and rescheduling their trade fair dates are the best way to support the industry during the COVID-19 pandemic. The organisers of the two trade fairs are planning further joint activities, which they will report on during the first quarter of 2021.
