The history of Interzoo and other facts about the exhibition
From pasting tables to the world’s biggest pet supplies exhibition
Interzoo’s outstanding success story began with the presentation of products on four pasting tables, when four member companies presented their new products on pasting tables during the annual conference of the German Pet Trade & Industry Association (ZZF) in 1950. The association members liked the presentation so much that the “Zoo-Börse” became a permanent feature and soon afterwards received the name “Zoo-Messe”.
The international break-through of the “Zoo-Messe” succeeded in the congress hall of the Frankfurt exhibition site in 1959. The subsidiary Wirtschaftsgemeinschaft Zoologischer Fachbetriebe GmbH (WZF) took over all ZZF business activities from 1966 onwards and gave the exhibition – meanwhile held in Wiesbaden – the new name of Interzoo. Interzoo 1984 with 350 exhibitors and increasingly professionally designed stands reached the limits of its capacity in Wiesbaden and the exhibition moved to Nuremberg in 1988. Interzoo continuously extended its product spectrum in Nuremberg and today is indisputably the world’s leading exhibition for the global pet industry.
