Interzoo started as “Zoo-Börse” in 1953. A few member companies presented their products in the occasion of the annual conference of ZZF. Over the years the trade fair envolved tremendously. It got bigger, more professional and international. With more than 1,900 exhibitors and about 39,000 trade visitors from over 125 countries, today Interzoo is the undisputed world's leading trade fair for pet supplies. Interzoo not only offers a global market overview of the innovative range, but it is also a communication platform.

WZF strategically plans and manages Interzoo. The company develops the supporting program, takes care of public relations and press contacts and makes sure that animal welfare is taken into account. All this is based on its many years of experience, its high expertise in pet supplies industry and its excellent network.
