The show covers all farmed species and every part of the animal protein value chain. Taking place on 13-15 March at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), it is also extremely international in scope, with 1,250 exhibitors from around 60 countries expected.

Exhibitors are set to include global market leaders and regional, as well as national, Asian players of growing importance, displaying the latest products and services for all animal protein producers and processors.

Every part of BITEC will be filled by stands, with an increase of 30 percent in net display area compared with the previous edition in 2017 and 50,000 visits are expected over the three days, representing forward-thinking businesses active in the sectors of meat, eggs, dairy and aquaculture.

The leaders of many of Asia’s most prominent food companies, as well as directors and managers of animal protein production and processing operations, are invited to attend and benefit from VIV Industry Leaders priority treatment, while several high-profile delegations are due to join the March 2019 gathering in Bangkok as a result of an intensive pre-show promotion. Many innovations will be displayed on the show’s stands.
