VIV Asia has been postponed to March 8-10, 2023, in co-location with Meat Pro Asia, states VNU, organizer of these events.
The organizers VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe have announced that VIV Asia is taking place on March 8-10, 2023, instead of January 2022. The Impact Challenger 1-3 Halls, in Bangkok, Thailand is the confirmed venue for the coming edition of this event. The co-location of VIV Asia with the first edition of Meat Pro Asia is also confirmed on March 8-10, 2023 by Meat Pro Asia organizers Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. and VNU Asia Pacific.
“Looking at the recent official statistics regarding the overall vaccination program in Thailand and surrounding countries, we foresee that the Covid situation will not improve fast enough to clear travel restrictions and allow such an international show as VIV Asia, with more than 65% of visitors coming from outside Thailand, to welcome the expected high number of Feed to Food professionals in the beginning of 2022” said Heiko Stutzinger, Director VIV worldwide and Managing Director VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe.
VIV Asia is thus officially returning to the traditional March cycle in the odd years, after Covid pandemic disruption. The organizers trust that this decision will bring a clear and final direction for all stakeholders’ future business planning.
Although vaccination programs are speeding up in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other Asian countries, travel restrictions continue and the timeline to reopen the countries looks longer than expected. Therefore VNU has announced new dates for its Asian shows and planned exhibitions. The control of the pandemic has also met extra challenges in the recent months with further delays in the overall Asian region recovery plan.
While preparation for the next physical shows will start shortly, the V-Connect Asia Edition digital event from 22-24 September 2021 brings business opportunities shortly. V-Connect is the web-based, smartphone-supported online platform to meet, learn and make deals during current travel limitations. VIV worldwide organizers strongly recommend the industry to take advantage of this unparalleled business chance now. Registrations for V-Connect Asia Edition are open on www.v-connect.net. The extensive high-end Conference Program is also available online.
VNU Asia Pacific is delighted to confirm that the digital version of the show V-Connect Indonesia Edition is still scheduled to take place from 24-25 November 2021. Soon available on www.v-connect.net.
