VIV China 2008: the future is bright

30-10-2008 | |

VIV China is still following an upward trend. The exhibition took place from 20-22 Oct at the New China International Exhibition Centre.

The 446 exhibitors at the biennial international Feed-to-Meat trade show welcomed 19,035 visitors from 75 countries. The exhibitors rated the show with a 7.0, expressing their appreciation about the improved quality of the visitors. The show confirmed its role as the leading event for the animal husbandry sector in China. 

The move to the new exhibition venue NCIEC proved to be a smart choice. Project manager Ruwan Berculo: “Being away from the city centre meant visitors had to make more effort to reach to the venue. The positive side effect was no ‘co-incidental passersby’. The visitors were industry specialists, determined to find answers and solutions to improve their production processes.”

Internationalisation industry

With its 2008-edition, VIV China welcomed 312 Chinese and 134 international companies from 23 countries. The 19,035 visitors, more than ever before, came from an all-time-high of 75 countries, reflecting the strong international development of animal husbandry in China.
