In 1989, PETS International started its magazine to inform the pet industry about challenges, changes, and opportunities taking place in the European pet industry. Through the years, the magazine became global, informing professionals all over the world about developments, trends, mergers, and acquisitions.
The main incentive was, and is, to inspire pet industry professionals to challenge boundaries and to learn from others.
In 1999, PETS International launched the GlobalPETS Forum. This annual conference takes place in Europe, in a different city every year. The Forum offers leaders of the pet industry an opportunity to network. In 2015, the first GlobalPETS Forum Asia was hosted.
