VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe has announced that VIV Asia will take place from 8-10 March 2023, instead of January 2022, in co-location with the first edition of Meat Pro Asia

The IMPACT Challenger 1-3 Halls, in Bangkok, Thailand is the confirmed venue for the coming edition of this leading event. The co-location of VIV Asia with the first edition of Meat Pro Asia is also confirmed on 8-10 March 2023 by Meat Pro Asia organisers Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. and VNU Asia Pacific.  

“Looking at the recent official statistics regarding the overall vaccination programme in Thailand and surrounding countries, we foresee that the Covid situation will not improve fast enough to clear travel restrictions and allow such an international show as VIV Asia, with more than 65% of visitors coming from outside Thailand, to welcome the expected high number of feed to food professionals in the beginning of 2022,” said Heiko M Stutzinger, director at VIV worldwide and managing director of VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe. 

VIV Asia is thus officially returning to the traditional March cycle in the odd years, after Covid-19 pandemic disruption.

VIV Asia is coming back as the #1 leading international event for the livestock, animal proteins, feed to food industry with global and regional players and industry professionals finally gathering in 2023 in the exciting city of Bangkok from the entire Asian continent. Exhibitors and visitors will also enjoy by then the complete BTS Skytrain extension from city centre directly to the venue. 

In addition Health & Nutrition Asia in co-location with VICTAM Asia are also rescheduled to new dates from 7-9 September 2022, instead of January 2022. The new venue is IMPACT Halls 9-10, in Bangkok, Thailand. 

While preparation for the next physical shows will start shortly, the V-Connect Asia Edition digital event from 22-24 September 2021 is confirmed to bring very soon important and concrete business opportunities. V-Connect is the web-based, smartphone-supported online platform to meet, learn and make deals during current travel limitations.
