(Image source: Victam International)The Victam Asia 2018, held at the Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) from March 27 – 29 2018, focused on the animal feed processing, grain processing, ingredients and additives, aqua feed and pet food industries across Asia-Pacific

A wide range of products were on display, especially the newly launched products and also the high quality of the exhibition stands and the professionalism of the show staff. There were 228 exhibitors and co-exhibitors from 33 countries present.

Exhibitors were able to have discussions and negotiations with their clients and new potential clients that they had met at the show. The exhibitors also commented on the very high quality of the visitors and the wide range of countries from which they came.

About 6,987 visitors from 67 countries attended the event, of them about 45 per cent were from outside Thailand. These figures clearly demonstrate that the event is Asia’s international showcase for the feed and grain industries.

The newly introduced business match-making program helped exhibitors and visitors get the most out of the exhibition. The programme focused on high-quality meetings and consisted of a combination of an online tool, which allowed exhibitors and visitors to plan their appointments very efficiently and a personal approach by our matchmaking consultants.

The conference delegates also confirmed the quality of the papers presented at the numerous conferences. The conferences had extensive programs which were well received.

The conferences were as follows:

· Aquafeed Horizons Asia 2018

· FIAAP Animal Nutrition Conference 2018

· Petfood Forum Asia 2018

· Global Milling Conference with GRAPAS Asia 2018

· GMP+ Feed Safety Assurance

· World Feed Industry Perspectives Conference 2018

The different conference organisers stated that the delegate attendance was good and that the delegates have appreciated the quality of both the speakers and their papers. Several exhibitors, like DSM, KSE, Buhler, Amandus Kahl and IDAH presented technical seminars during the three show days.

Victam International, the event organisers, also arranged the World Feed Industry Perspectives Conference. Speakers from IFIF, Thai Feed Mill Association, the Vietnam Feed Association and Feed Latina and the Department of Livestock addressed the audience of senior international executives from the international animal feed industries.

During the Network Reception the winners of the coveted GRAPAS Innovation Awards were announced. There were three winners. They are the Geelen Counterflow Electrical Dryer, Henry Simon’ Rollermill of Satake and the Atta Process with PesaMill from Bühler.

The Victam newsroom reported semi-live from the show floor to allow those that couldn’t attend to still be part of the action. Speakers, visitors and exhibitors were interviewed about their expertise and the news crew made running reports about the event.
