HO CHI MINH CITY, Vietnam, July 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Since its inception in 2004, VIETSTOCK Expo & Forum, organized by UBM Asia (Malaysia) and held in conjunction with VIETFEED and VIETMEAT, has consistently grown, both in exhibitor number and size, and 2016 is no exception, with an expected 300+ exhibitors, and growth of 40% from the last edition.
Strategically located in Ho Chi Minh City, VIETSTOCK 2016 reaches across the Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam (CLMV) markets to bring together an expected 9,000+ visitors ready to do business on 19-21 October, at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre (SECC), Vietnam. "No other feed, livestock and meat show in the CLMV region comes close in size or scope," said UBM Asia Business Director, Rungphech (Rose) Chitanuwat.
Noting the rapid growth in exhibitor numbers, Ms. Rose said, "The level of support we are receiving from local, regional and international companies confirms the attractiveness of the livestock and allied sectors market in Vietnam and the surrounding region -- and the important role VIETSTOCK plays in the industry."
VIETSTOCK 2016 has again attracted many of the industry's best known names, and with exhibitors from more than 30 countries it will bring a strong international perspective to the region's livestock sector. Moreover, it also encourages valuable business partnerships, knowledge transfer and investment by which we can help to increase the region's competitiveness by further improving the quality and safety of feed, livestock and meat products.
Exhibitors are optimistic about the growth and evolution of the livestock and allied industries, not just in Vietnam, but in CLMV. The region has become increasingly important to the livestock market as with continued economic growth, consumers are demanding higher quality and safe food products. This is making the region especially attractive to suppliers of inputs, such as animal health, feed, meat processing equipment, food safety solutions and so much more.
"As the livestock, aquaculture and allied industries in Vietnam and the surrounding area continue to grow and innovate each year, so does VIETSTOCK. With every show, VIETSTOCK has moved from strength to strength, due in large part to the support of the industry, including our valued partners the Department of Livestock Production, Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development of Vietnam (MARD) and Animal Husbandry Association of Vietnam (AHAV)," Ms. Rose said.
"VIETSTOCK is much more than the industry's leading tradeshow," noted Ms. Rose. "And this year there's more opportunity than ever to connect with the industry and the people driving it. With the theme, 'Enhancing Food Safety for Domestic & Export Markets,' an extensive program of activities alongside the Expo will include conferences and seminars where you will be able to hear from leading experts who keep you informed about the latest products and solutions and a broad range of issues and trends affecting the industry that are designed to equip delegates with new ideas that will focus on improving the competitiveness of the feed, livestock and meat industries and upgrading food safety.
Organized by UBM Asia (Malaysia), VIETSTOCK Expo and Forum has developed an outstanding reputation since its launch in 2004 as Vietnam's premier event for the feed, livestock and meat industries and continues to grow bigger and better with each version.
