The Kennel Club is delighted to announce that London's premier dog event, Discover Dogs, will be moving to Excel (subject to contract) from 2015, following the closure of Earls Court Exhibition Centre for redevelopment.

The event will take place 17 and 18 October 2015 and in subsequent years it will move to the first weekend in December. This year it will continue at Earls Court, which has been its home since 1996, on 8 and 9 November.

Vanessa McAlpine, Kennel Club Events Executive, said: "We are delighted to have a new home for Discover Dogs and we will continue to run a first class event supported by the breed clubs, sponsors and trade exhibitors. We hope will attract new visitors on top of those loyal visitors who have attended in the past and who helped to make Discover Dogs 2013 our biggest event to date, with 35,000 visitors."

Discover Dogs is a unique event that enables people to meet and greet nearly 200 breeds of dog, to shop for dog related products, and to watch fun four-legged displays and competitions. The fun family event, sponsored by Eukanuba, celebrates our unique relationship with dogs, in addition to helping people understand the importance of choosing the right breed for their lifestyle and making sure they buy a puppy responsibly.

Vanessa continued: "There is no other event quite like Discover Dogs and the elements that have been at the heart of the show for many years and that have won the hearts of dog lovers, will continue at Excel, namely adorable dogs, excellent shopping, fun displays and competitions and plenty of information and advice."

Tickets for Discover Dogs 2014 are now on sale. Tickets cost £13.20 or £9.90 for concessions and under 12s go free. For more information and to buy tickets visit www.discoverdogs.org.uk.
