VIV Asia, the Feed to Food global trade show in Asia, is postponed to January 12-14, 2022. This was announced by the show organizers VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe.
Meat Pro Asia, Asia’s leading processing and packaging trade fair for egg, poultry, meat, seafood and food products is also postponed. This exhibition is organized by Messe Frankfurt and VNU Asia Pacific and will be co-located with VIV Asia.
The co-location of the two international leading events for the animal protein production business in Asia is an unprecedented opportunity, according to the organisers. VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia will take place on January 12-14, 2022. Place to be are the Challenger Halls – Impact in Bangkok, Thailand. The dates are chosen based on the announcement by the ministry of Tourism and Sports on a new plan that would see the country fully opened to international visitors by January 2022.
“Our new dates and plan are aligned with the announcement from the Thai Government to fully reopen by January 2022,” said Heiko M. Stutzinger, director VIV worldwide and managing director VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe. “As for Victam and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia, the organizers are working on a solution in order to synergistically combine the events in Bangkok. All details regarding the new set-up will be communicated in the coming weeks,” according Stutzinger.
“The reason for this step is our strong commitment to offer our clients a truly international platform in Bangkok. Stakeholders should be in the condition to participate and make the three day event a booster for business. We strongly believe that the new dates will benefit all parties,” said Zhenja Antochin, senior projectmanager VNU Europe.
“Thanks to the good cooperation with our partners, we were able to secure a prime timeslot in 2022. From this postponement our exhibitors and visitors can expect a fruitful and safe event,” said Panadda Kongma, director Agribusiness and Operations VNU Asia Pacific.
VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia will organize a digital event in September 2021. As a complimentary business opportunity, the online platform will maximize exposure for exhibitors. The digital meeting platform will provide a sourcing option for buyers from all over Asia during this year. Networking and knowledge sharing sessions will also be facilitated through the platform. More details on the digital dates will follow in due course.
