Leading events to open the year of animal protein production business in 2022 in Asia.

VIV Asia, the complete Feed to Food global trade show in Asia, is postponed to January 12-14, 2022, as announced by the show organizers VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe.

Meat Pro Asia, Asia’s leading processing and packaging trade fair for egg, poultry, meat, seafood & food products, organized by Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. and VNU Asia Pacific is also postponed to be co-located with VIV Asia.

Two international leading events for the animal protein production business in Asia, under one roof: an unprecedented and remarkable opportunity. VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia will take place on January 12-14, 2022, at the Challenger Halls – IMPACT, Bangkok, Thailand based on the announcement by The Ministry of Tourism and Sports on a new four-phase plan that would see the country fully opened to international visitors by January 2022. 

“Our new dates and plan are aligned with the announcement from the Thai Government to fully reopen by January 2022.” said Heiko M. Stutzinger, Director VIV worldwide and Managing Director VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe. “As for VICTAM and Animal Health and Nutrition Asia, the organizers are working on a forward-driven solution in order to synergistically combine the events in Bangkok. All details and implications for partners and customers regarding the new set-up will be communicated in the coming weeks.” added Stutzinger.

VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia postponement

“The reason for this step into 2022 is our strong commitment to offer our clients a truly international platform in Bangkok. Stakeholders from all over the world should be in the condition to participate and make the 3-day event a real booster for business. We strongly believe that the new dates will benefit all parties and stakeholders planning to attend VIV Asia” said Zhenja Antochin, Senior Project Manager VNU Europe.

“Thanks to the good cooperation with our partners, we were able to secure a prime timeslot for VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia in 2022. From this postponement our exhibitors and visitors can expect a fruitful and safe event.” said Panadda Kongma, Director Agribusiness and Operations VNU Asia Pacific.

Digital event heading up to the in-person dates

Prior to the in-person trade shows in January next year, VIV Asia and Meat Pro Asia will organize a digital event in September 2021. Offered to both events exhibiting companies as a complimentary business opportunity, the online platform will maximize exposure for exhibitors and provide a convenient sourcing option for buyers from all over Asia during this year. Networking and knowledge sharing sessions will also be facilitated through the platform. More details on the digital dates will follow in due course.
