“Around the world in 80 days”? At the official Interzoo 2018 party, exhibitors and visitors can travel around the world in just one night – with no luggage, but with unforgettable encounters and impressions. With the theme of “Around the World”, the world’s leading fair for pet supplies will host a fascinating tour of the world’s continents, starting at 6:00 p.m. on 10 May at the Exhibition Centre Nuremberg, NCC Ost, level 1, and featuring typical food and drinks from the various destinations, show acts, live music, a DJ and a personal “holiday photo”.

The Taiko ensemble “Wadokyo” will add Asian flair and mystical drum rolls, with its thunderous performance of strength, precision and passion. The ancient, powerful rhythms, the mighty, vibrating drums, and the aesthetic yet vigorous movement of the players’ bodies all give the Japanese Taiko style of drum performance a special magic and appeal all of its own.

The trio “Cuba Vista” will bring Latin American joie de vivre to Nuremberg and take the public on a trip through the most beautiful musical landscapes of Cuba and Brazil. Havana’s legendary “Buena Vista Social Club” will come to life again at Interzoo with the swaying salsa, captivating bolero, stirring bossa nova and the spirited samba.

There will be more than just dancing and music on offer for the party guests, however, with an opportunity to ride the perfect wave on an Australian surf simulator without getting even slightly wet. The surfers can then be carried away by fire dancers through the savannas of Africa, and celebrate their daring wave ride with drinks and their own cocktail creations in the Africa Bar. They will be accompanied by the band “Short Cuts”, which has been a popular feature with guests at previous Interzoo parties.

Whether it’s dancing, surfing or having a drink at the bar, the Interzoo Trade Fair Party is the ideal opportunity for all exhibitors and visitors to cultivate contacts away from the bustle of the fair itself, and celebrate along with representatives of the pet industry from around the world.
