VNU announces new dates for the Asian shows, as vaccination plans and Covid situation are clearer in the region

Although vaccination programs are speeding up in Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and other ASEAN countries, travel restrictions continue and the timeline to reopen the countries looks longer than expected. The control of the pandemic has also met extra challenges in the recent months with further delays in the overall Asian region recovery plan.

VIV Asia postponed to March 8-10, 2023, in co-location with Meat Pro Asia
The organizers VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe have announced that VIV Asia is taking place on March 8-10, 2023, instead of January 2022. 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 March 8-10, 2023 by Meat Pro Asia organizers Messe Frankfurt (HK) Ltd. and VNU Asia Pacific.

“Looking at the recent official statistics regarding the overall vaccination program 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 VIV worldwide and Managing Director VNU Asia Pacific and VNU Europe.

VIV Asia is thus officially returning to the traditional March cycle in the odd years, after Covid pandemic disruption.
The organizers trust that this decision will bring a clear and final direction for all stakeholders’ future business planning.

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 on September 7-9, 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. VIV worldwide organizers strongly recommend the industry to take advantage of this unparalleled business chance now. Registrations for V-Connect Asia Edition are open on www.v-connect.net and the extensive high-end Conference Program is also available.

ILDEX Exhibitions rescheduled to the second half of 2022
ILDEX organizers have to reschedule ILDEX Vietnam from its original date on March 2022 to August 3-5, 2022 at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City.

With a population of 98 million, Vietnam has administered 5.3 million vaccine doses as per July. According to the statement of the Health Ministry, Vietnam plans to vaccinate 50% of the population age 18+ by the end of 2021 and set a goal of 70% of its population to be vaccinated by March 2022. By postponing the event to 2nd half of next year, we anticipate cross-border travel will be gradually back to normal and the event is set at an ideal time to meet the market’s demand after a long downturn.

ILDEX Indonesia and Aquatica Asia are also rescheduled to 9-11 November 2022 at Hall 3-3A, Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE), Jakarta. Daily Covid cases remain at high levels in Indonesia and a partial lockdown has been implemented by the local authority. Besides, according to the ASPERAPI (Indonesia Exhibition Companies Association), there is no official statement on the reopening of physical exhibitions this year. Therefore, by postponing the event to Q4, 2022, we anticipate widespread mass vaccination can be expected in Indonesia. In the meanwhile, following the Vietnam Edition and Asia Edition, VNU Asia Pacific is delighted to confirm that the digital version of the show V-Connect Indonesia Edition is still scheduled to take place from 24-25 November 2021. Soon available on www.v-connect.net.

VICTAM Asia in co-location with Health & Nutrition Asia are planned on September 7-9, 2022

Due to the ongoing worldwide pandemic, the management teams of VICTAM Corporation and VIV worldwide have decided to postpone VICTAM Asia and Health & Nutrition Asia in Bangkok to the third quarter of 2022.

The current situation is still not as optimal as it was estimated. Above all, the health of exhibitors and visitors and the successful outcome of the event are most important to the organizers.

In light of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, which has forced the Royal Thai Government to implement new strict measures to control the spread of the pandemic, and the delays of the vaccination programs in several Asian countries, VICTAM and VIV do not see the opportunity to realize a large-scale event on the short term. Looking at the ongoing travel restrictions from and to Asia, the organizers also believe that it is not possible to guarantee the event quality as we know them for. The postponement to the third quarter of 2022 is in the interest of the whole industry.

VICTAM Asia in co-location with Health & Nutrition Asia are thus rescheduled to September 7-9, 2022. The new venue selected is IMPACT Halls 9-10, in Bangkok, Thailand. The objective remains the same: to realize the Total Animal Feed and Health event.

The dates secured in September 2022 will give all stakeholders room to breathe and pay attention to other vital issues. The organizers’ mission is to present a strong, value-adding event to the industry with high benefits for all parties.

VICTAM Corporation and VIV worldwide will also continue their partnership in Europe in 2022 by co-locating VICTAM International and VIV Europe at the Jaarbeurs venue in Utrecht, the Netherlands, from May 31 – June 2, 2022. With the high percentage of vaccinations in Europe there is no reason to doubt that this show can successfully go on as planned.

VNU Asia Pacific Launches REDCON to Boost PPPs in the Disaster and Climate Tech Sectors

 

The innovative Conference and Exhibition format will bring together government, private sector, non-profits, international organizations, academia and innovators across the entire value-chain of Disasters and Emergency Management at the United Nations Conference Center in Bangkok

BANGKOK, Thailand – VNU Asia Pacific (part of VNU Group, a globally operating exhibition company with offices in Utrecht, Shanghai, Bangkok) is pleased to announce the staging of the Resilience on Emergency & Disaster Conference (REDCON) on the 7th-9th of December 2021 at the United Nations Conference Center in Bangkok, Thailand.

“We at VNU are excited to launch this much-needed platform in the region. Our Mission is to gather the leading thought leaders, policy makers and cutting-edge companies on Disaster Risk Reduction and Emergency Response here in Bangkok. We are convinced, that this event will spur cooperation from various sectors of the society for a more cohesive and decisive action when disasters strike” says Heiko M. Stutzinger, Managing Director of VNU Asia Pacific.  “We know today, that efforts to reduce disaster risks and implement effective emergency response to disasters must be systematically integrated into policies, plans and practices with recognition of the issues relating to sustainable development, climate change and poverty reduction” he continues.

Asia-Pacific accounted for USD 1.3 trillion – or 44 percent – of the last decade’s worldwide total direct economic damage and losses (USD 2.89 Trillion from 2010-2019) as catastrophic earthquake, tsunami, inland flood, and tropical cyclone events battered the region. And this is just accounting for natural disasters. The 2020 pandemic is having an unprecedented impact on the region – not only on the lives lost as well as the socio-economic costs – but its cascading impact on other sectors has ground the planet to a halt. This has further widened the inequalities and disempowerment of the most vulnerable – the at-risk communities among them the urban poor, migrants, elderly and informal workers.

With the theme of “People-Centered Approach Towards Resilience in Disasters and Emergency Action,” REDCON will focus on most impacted to be the centerpiece of the discussions and solutions – envisioning to engage stakeholders in the value chain from problem to solution and goes beyond risk reduction towards resilience.
