Here at The Insurance Emporium, we have just returned from one of our favourite weekends of the year! The National Pet Show is one of the UK’s biggest pet shows and is held every year in Birmingham. It’s a truly magical weekend where we get to meet some seriously cute, furry, feathered (and other!) friends, as well as some of our loyal customers past, present and hopefully future! Here are some of our highlights from this amazing National Pet Show adventure!

 All about the show

 The National Pet Show might be the perfect place for animal lovers to spend a weekend! Surrounded by cute cats, dashing dogs and much more, there is plenty to see at the show! It could be the ideal time to speak to experts and breeders if you are looking to purchase a new pet or are just there to discover all sorts of wonderful products and other things for your existing friend! The show is held at the National Exhibition Centre and really is a haven for pet lovers!

Standing out from the crowd

 At The Insurance Emporium, we are very proud to have exhibited at the National Pet Show! If you attended this weekend of pet-themed fun, you probably saw our bright blue stand with our hero Mr Benn on the side! There was all kinds of fun to be had on our stand, with free face painting, balloons and handy flyers with a whole host of useful information about caring for your furry-friend! We absolutely loved meeting everyone who stopped by for a chat!

 Catching up with friends…

 Some of our favourite visitors to our stand were our friends from Canine Partners! As well as having their own stand, showcasing some of the truly amazing things that their dogs do to help transform lives, they also brought one of their beautiful Labrador Retriever dogs to visit! As you can see, our team were very pleased to meet him! We also ran into our friends from Pembrokeshire Tourism and their mascot! There were so many fantastic people at the National Pet Show that we wish we could have met them all!

It’s show time!

 There was plenty of action to see at the arenas during this year’s show and our team very much enjoyed taking in some of it! Whether it was the Conquest-K9 Dog Display or SuperDogs Live, wandering around the show and taking in the performances made it a truly exciting place to be! In addition to the main arena, there was a Cat Talks stage, Canine Catwalk, Noel’s Ark Kids Zone and plenty more to see! The NEC truly was a hive of activity, showing of the cutest, bravest and most talented pets the country has to offer throughout the weekend!

Famous faces

 There’s no doubt that the true celebrities in attendance at the National Pet Show were the animals but there were also some very recognisable human faces to see too! Professor Noel Fitzpatrick is known for his TV show The Supervet and he was on hand to give a few expert talks over the weekend. TV presenter Michaela Strachan was also at the show and could be found hosting the SuperDogs Live Show. Fans of Britain’s Got Talent might also have recognised Lucy Heath and her dancing dog Trip Hazard!


This year’s National Pet Show truly was a fantastic weekend, packed with some really magical moments! At The Insurance Emporium, we are thrilled to have been a part of it and thoroughly enjoyed our adventure at the NEC! It was great to be able to meet so many wonderful people and animals whilst spreading the word about our Pet Insurance products! If you have a beloved pet pooch or a cute kitty then you might want to consider purchasing some insurance! Head to The Insurance Emporium to find out more about what we can offer!
