    • The World of Pet Supplies (simplified Chinese: ; traditional Chinese: ) is an international pet fair organised by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).

      Wholesalers, importers, distributors and retailers that specialise in pet related products and services participate in the fair. The World of Pet Supplies takes place with the Hong Kong Houseware Fair at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC). The number of exhibitors in the 2010 event increased to 106.

      The World of Pet Supplies fair is held every year between the 20 and 23 April. The event in 2011 was the 26th fair, with more visitors and exhibitors expected than in the previous year, given the popularity that this event has gained. The largest fair of this type is held in Hong Kong, in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Here, pet owners can get anything for their pets from dog wheels to accessories, grooming supplies, cages, aquarium supplies and everything is needed in a house which accommodates pets.

      Although the fair officially starts on the 20th of April, the afternoon of the day prior to the opening is reserved for the registration of the buyers. Everyone who wants to attend this fair must be registered and in most cases a pre-registration is required. The latter can be done via the official website of the fair. The three main days of the fair are the 20th, 21st and 22nd. The fair is then open from 9am to 6:30pm, and the buyers may register in the same days with 30 minutes before the fair starts or ends. The last day of the World of Pet Supplies fair is shorter and the event takes place only from 9am to 5pm.
