As expected, the fifth edition of the international livestock, dairy, meat processing, and aquaculture exposition (ILDEX) in Indonesia was a success and filled the hall with quality trade participants
The shows welcomed more than 8000 trade participants from over 28 countries. Apart from this, the conference sessions were a hit, with over 1,665 delegates and 75 speakers from more than 11 countries who presented during the three days of the show. ILDEX Indonesia has proved to be the key platform for match-making and deal-making in Indonesia's livestock and aquaculture industry.
At ILDEX Indonesia 2022, over 55% of the total exhibitors were international brands, meeting the key concept of the show, which was to connect international investors with local distributors and buyers and expand their business across countries. More than 135 companies from over 25 countries showcased their products and services. The exhibition halls were divided into zones representing four main industrial sectors namely animal health, feed ingredients/ additives, farm production, and meat processing/ handling, bringing together stakeholders, manufacturers, importers and exporters, and professionals.
“At ILDEX Indonesia, we execute and internationalise trade shows and conferences from animal production and processing to technology, from agriculture to innovations, and from pets to medical and laboratory sectors. We apply its concepts and know-how across industries and in all Asian countries. Through our international network and global reach, we build and expand our marketplaces in Indonesia to meet the people’s demand, the country’s demand, as well as a regional demand,” said Igor Palka, managing director, VNU Asia Pacific.
The show started with an opening ceremony on the first day on the exhibition floor at the ICE in Jakarta. The opening speech was given by Widianto Dwi Surya, president director of PT Permata Kreasi Media, Igor Palka, managing director of VNU Asia Pacific, Nasrullah, Directorate General of Livestock and Animal Health, the Ministry of Agriculture, RI, and Ahmad Zaki Iskandar, Regent of Tanggerang City visited the trade fair and met the leading companies from local and international brands.
On the fairground, participants from Indonesia and overseas discussed their business opportunities. The official opening event and the VIP tours were also crowded with industry professionals and buyers. Apart from that, the conference sessions were presented in both English and Bahasa, with attractive topics for overseas and local audiences.
ILDEX Indonesia created another eventful day as the exhibition was abuzz with activity, on-site demonstrations, and presentations on the latest smart farming solutions and high technology for livestock and aquaculture businesses, both in the exhibition booths and with the knowledge sharing from the technical seminar sessions. More than 40 international buyers along with potential buyers from ASEAN countries visited the show and ran the business matching with the exhibitors. Additionally, a group of visitors from academic institutes, associations, and the owners of big farms from nearby provinces also visited the show to stimulate investment in this region.
"The impact of this exhibition is extremely huge because so many exhibitors are bringing up their products and services. They also introduce us to new technology and innovation, which involve high-tech and holistic services as well,” said Endra Granasamsa, managing director, Grand International Livestock, Brunei. “We can also see what we could do to develop the new idea for the poultry business and animal feed industry. What I can say is this is the best exhibition you can attend if you really want to improve your services or business in terms of the livestock industry," added Granasamsa.
After organizing ILDEX Vietnam and ILDEX Indonesia for nearly 20 years, VNU Asia Pacific announced a new show, “ILDEX Philippines,” in co-location with “the Philippines Poultry Show,” scheduled from 9-11 August 2023 at SMX Convention Centre in Manila, Philippines.
