The International Dog Show Rotterdam will be held, for the 48th and 49th time, in the Ahoy-complex in Rotterdam on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th August 2022. This show will be organized by the ‘Stichting Hondententoonstelling Rotterdam’.

In 2022 there is again a double show in Rotterdam, meaning that on both days there will be an all-breed dog show. We hope that this will cause many exhibitors to find the way to the Rotterdam Shows.

The dog shows in Rotterdam are known for the nice atmosphere, lots of space, many trade stands and the wonderful main ring. Our show is, especially concerning the variation in trade stands and the shopping public, one of the biggest in the Netherlands.

However, our space is limited, so we want to give you the opportunity to book your trade stand, or space in the catalogue for advertisement. The earlier you make your reservation, the better we are able to divide the available space as effectual as possible.

With an advertisement in our catalogue you can:

  • promote your business or products;
  • give publicity to your breed club;
  • promote your breed;
  • bring your kennel to the attention of the public.

If you want to donate prizes, like for instance rosettes, cups, etc., we would appreciate that very much. Of course we wil mention that in our catalogue.

Reservations for a trade stand or advertisement can be made by filling out the form and send this to the mentioned address as soon as possible.

In the renovated halls we will have a new layout. Some of you were there already last year and probably want to opt for the same spot.

Construction of the trade stands will have to take place on Friday 26th August as from 10.00 hrs. Dismantling/removal can start on Sunday 28th August immediately after Best In Show.

It is not allowed to enter the venue with your car(s) before the end of the show.

The rent for a trade stand is:€ 61,00 per m2.

Please order parking vouchers with the same form as the trade stand space and we will put them on the invoice together with the trade stand costs. Do not order parking tickets directly at the Ahoy venue as those are for the outer parking and we have a special area for trade stand holders.

When you calculate the sizes of your trade stand, you will also have to take into consideration racks and benches and so on that will be placed outside your stand. Meters used in that way will also have to be paid.
