VICTAM Corporation and VIV worldwide welcomed exhibitors and visitors from September 7 – 9, 2022 at the IMPACT Bangkok, Thailand for the events Victam Asia, Health & Nutrition Asia and GRAPAS Asia. The three co-located trade fairs focused on animal feed, animal health and nutrition, and the grain and rice processing industries.
“It was exciting to be back in Asia again after the Covid pandemic. The atmosphere at the event was excellent as exhibitors and visitors were glad to be participating at a live event again,” says general manager of the Victam Corporation, Sebas van den Ende. “We were happy to finally welcome all these companies and professionals. A few exhibitors were not able to participate due to the strict Covid rules in their countries, but we provided them with a hybrid platform so they were able to participate online. The participating exhibitors attended with exciting stands, machinery, and innovations.”
“This was a great opportunity for the feed and animal health industry to meet in 2022. The exhibition halls were busy over the three event days, with the top 10 visiting countries being Thailand, India, Philippines, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Malaysia, Indonesia, Korea, Myanmar, and Singapore,” said Birgit Horn, Managing Director VIV worldwide.
