The Victam Corporation announced that it will expand its business to Latin America. VICTAM LatAm will be organized from October 3 – 5, 2023 at Expo Center Norte in São Paulo, Brazil. VICTAM LatAm is co-located with GRAPAS LatAm, the event for the grain milling and processing industries and with GEAPS, the biggest and best show in the grain industry.
New event with huge potential
General Manager of the Victam Corporation, Sebas van den Ende says: “We currently organize events in Europe, Asia and EMEA so expanding to Latin America was the next logical step. Countries like Brazil, Mexico and Argentina offer a huge potential for the animal feed and grain processing market for exhibitors and visitors alike. There is a lack of one complete event in the Latin America market and with the support and confirmed participation of Founding Companies Andritz, CMP, Famsun, Wenger and Zheng Chang, we decided to take the jump and organize the first edition of VICTAM LatAm and GRAPAS LatAm.”
Van den Ende continues: “Although Brazil is not an easy market, and a successful market entrance takes time and effort, the great potential makes it worth this investment. With 1.600 feed mills and a production of 90 million tons per year, Brazil is the third producer of animal feed in the world. We believe that VICTAM LatAm will be an important tool for companies to enter the market or to exceed their current business. We also would like to offer the Latin American visitors an opportunity to see what innovations by our exhibitors are on show.”
The Victam Corporation is also excited to announce a new partnership with the Grain Elevator and (GEAPS). GEAPS is an international professional association of individuals that work in the grain handling and processing industry.
Steve Records, Executive Director of GEAPS, explains: ‘Our mission at GEAPS is to advance industry knowledge and information through our global network of agricultural professionals. We see our mission come to life each year at our GEAPS Exchange but realize that many outside of North America cannot take advantage of this event. We believe that partnering with VICTAM to launch an expo in South America will leverage the strength of both organizations and bring immense value to GEAPS members and the industry as a whole in a new geography.”
In parallel to the event, an interesting conference program with seminars, workshops and training programs will be organized. This makes it even more interesting for visitors to attend the event. Topics will include aquafeed, petfood, packaging, animal nutrition, feed technology, grain handling, grain storage, grain quality and many more. We offer exhibitors the opportunity to organize a technical seminar.
