Pet retail has a unique position in the Czech Republic - the number of owners of dogs and cats ranks the Czechs among the European top.

They will focus on practical recommendations for pet food retailers, in particular how to better organize the merchandising and overall outlook of the store, how to communicate with customers and how will the business be affected by GDPR.

The program will be divided into three specialized blocks. The first part will deal with data on petfood and other pet products sales in the Czech Republic compared with Europe, new trends and new demands of customers.
