VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia 2020 will be held from 24-26 March 2020 in Bangkok, Thailand, with around 400 exhibitors in a 22,800 sq m space at BITEC.

VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia 2020, by the two show organisers VICTAM and VIV, is all set to provide total solutions in feed production, feed technology and processing, to feed ingredients, feed additives, animal health and pharmaceuticals in animal protein production and others.

Exhibiting in one of the three show halls of VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia gives exhibitors access to the world’s fastest-growing market - Asia, and to a targeted audience of around 9,000 professional visitors including CEOs, feed formulators, mill managers, nutritionists, operation directors, transportation managers, veterinarians, academics, and more.

“Via a joint promotion campaign and the industries’ mobilisation operated in synergy by VICTAM and VIV, exhibitors will benefit from a highly qualified network, which is also the most complete network in Asia for feed and animal health,” said Panadda Kongma, head of agribusiness and operations at VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific.

Highlights on livestock market and future trends

During the official press conference in Myanmar, Dr Mya Han, chairman of Myanmar Livestock Federation, talked about the current situation of the livestock market and future trends. According to Dr Han, “While the whole agriculture sector plays an important role in Myanmar’s economy, livestock production has become critically important for food security, especially to supply sufficient quality protein for people and to guarantee food safety.”

“I do believe that VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia 2020 will provide the right business platform for Myanmar stakeholders to share knowledge. It will also encourage the Myanmar livestock sector’s productivity, profitability and sustainability,” he said.

Preventing livestock diseases

Dr Ye Thut Aung, from the University of Veterinary Science Yezin, Myanmar discussed the importance of monitoring animal health and preventing animal disease outbreaks. “The recent trends and future prospects in livestock production in Myanmar are fuelled by an increasing demand for livestock products, driven largely by human population growth, income growth and urbanisation, which will continue for the next three decades at least. Livestock plays very important economic and social-cultural roles in the wellbeing of rural households. Diseases are among the most significant limiting factors for livestock production.”

“They diminish the capacity of the animal to achieve its inherent potential level of production, for any given feeding and management regimen. The impacts of the animal disease can vary from reduced productivity and restricted market access to the elimination of entire flocks or herds, with the resultant loss of biodiversity and valuable genetic resources.”

Dr Ye Thut Aung identified four elements to be considered for a successful and healthy future for the animal husbandry industry: disease detection, prevention, improvement and the sustainable development of the livestock sector.

“VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia 2020 will be the exhibition platform for Myanmar and other Asian markets to find the latest solutions on Animal Health,” he added.

Platform to launch new technologies

Sebas van den Ende, general manager of the VICTAM Corporation, added, “VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia is the platform for exhibiting companies to launch their new products or services in the fields of technology, ingredients and additives to manufacture feed for animals as well as the latest in pharmaceutics, genetics and high-tech animal health solutions. This event is all about networking and learning the latest within these industries”.

The show introduces a dedicated programme for potential buyers, which is offered to Myanmar and other major markets. The “Industry Leaders Programme” offers the opportunity to 150 top industry buyers to be special guests at the show and enjoy extra participation privileges.

VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia 2020, by VICTAM and VIV, is a three-day trade show and conference programme with more than 100 speakers.
