Mr. Gerard Leeuwenburgh, Director International Exhibitions of VNU Exhibitions Europe and Managing Director of VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific said, "The professionals in livestock and aquaculture industries selected VIV Asia 2013 & Aquatic Asia 2013 as their preferred meeting point. It’s Asia’s largest event, constantly organized every other year, for over 2 decades. It provides an effective platform for trade and ideas exchanging among animal protein professionals. The event provides tremendous business opportunities to regional buyers and sellers. This year, 747 companies exhibit in VIV Asia. China, Thailand, The USA, The Netherlands and France take the lead in terms of exhibitor numbers. The visitor attendance, expected from Asia, Africa and The Middle East, is expected to reach 25,000.

CropTech-FeedTech & MeatTech: chain quality from start to finish

By using two essential themes, VIV aims to facilitate and stimulate production of high-quality animal protein in the growth countries of Asia. This themed duality is a leitmotif throughout VIV Asia: CropTech-FeedTech & MeatTech. “The quality of the end products - meat, poultry and eggs - is largely determined by what happens at the start of the chain. Consequently our partners - experts and exhibitors - present the best knowledge and technologies to produce the best end products. They do so at the exhibition, with machinery for Feed milling and with Meat processing equipment and technologies for consumer products. In addition to the exhibition we have a parallel program with Conferences where we share the knowledge contained within the chain with the visitors. Our two themes literally define the VIV concept ‘Feed to Meat’. What you do at the start of the production chain with respect to quality forms the basis for the quality at the end of the chain", states Ruwan Berculo, Project Manager VIV.

Dairy Production Conference

For the first time, VIV Asia addresses the dairy industry with the launch of a 100%-dedicated Dairy Conference, scheduled for Thursday March 14, 14h00-16h00. Following the theme 'Taking the Asian Dairy industry into the 22nd Century', international Key notes present visions and solutions for the Asian Dairy industry in the field of Breeding, Animal health and Nutrition.

Aquatic Asia 2013

For the second time, Aquatic Asia is organized in co-location with VIV Asia. It has been specifically decided to stage two events. “We want to give Aquatic Asia a distinct profile of its own. There are approximately 23 specialized exhibitors. In addition there is a number of 150 VIV Asia exhibitors providing products for Aquaculture” explains Guus van Ham, Project Manager VIV & Aquatic Asia. For the Aquatic Asia Conference, partnerships have been established with renowned institutes and organizations, like the Thai Department of Fisheries, Blue Aqua, Aqua Biz and Bayer Animal Health. These will cover all aspects of the entire production chain right up to retail level. There will also be a conference on Global GAP Certification for Good Agricultural Practice. The common denominator of the conference program is sustainable development.


Mr.Thongchai Sridama, Board of Director and Acting President of Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), as official supporter of VIV ASIA 2013, said “Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau or best known as TCEB is the government agency working under Prime Minister ‘s office with mission to promote the meeting and exhibition industries in Thailand, especially develop and uplift Exhibition in Thailand as the platform for ASEAN region .
