Sponsored by MHA MacIntyre Hudson, the Business of Pets conference is a brand new event designed to help pet businesses take that vital step to the next level. It will take place from Wednesday 7 – Thursday 8 June at the Cranfield Management Development Centre near Milton Keynes.

The programme will cover important topics for those businesses considering investment to grow their business, but who are looking for advice and guidance to do it successfully. Topics include:

  • Getting your business ready for investment
  • Avoiding compliance pitfalls
  • Discovering the right investment options for your business
  • Safeguarding your brand
  • Hearing from founders who have received investment and how it helped them grow their business.
  • What innovations the market and UK pet owner are looking for.
  • Latest market research

Nigel Baker, CEO of PIF commented:

“This exciting agenda covers a whole raft of considerations for pet companies who are thinking about how to get investment for growth into their company. It can be time-consuming and challenging to research all the various options, and costly if it goes wrong, so we have designed this conference to cover all bases for pet service and product companies at every level of the investment journey.”

The two days of learning and networking are aimed at business owners, directors and decision makers and the programme allows for networking opportunities, including an evening social BBQ after the first day.
