27 MARCH 2019
The 2019 edition of VIV Asia, held over 3 days from 13th to 15th March in Bangkok, attracted more than 45,000 professional visits, confirming the big attendance of the previous appointment.
Already known since 2017 as the n.1 international trade show from Feed to Food in Asia, VIV Asia 2019 took another step forward in strengthening its international character with a 7% increase of visits from outside of the hosting country. The enthusiasm and energy distinguishing the Feed to Food Asian markets resonated at BITEC throughout the show time, giving all attendees another memorable experience at VIV Asia.
The biggest international industry gathering of Asia
When looking at the livestock and feed to food markets in Asia, VIV worldwide offers the strongest network of industry professionals, with VIV Asia leading the VIV series of events.
A good 65% of the total 45,023 visits registered at VIV Asia in 2019 came to Bangkok from outside of Thailand, confirming the international flavour of this show where local visitors counted this time for 35%, against the 39% Thai visits audited in 2017. With Asian markets in the lead, overseas visitors came from more than 120 countries.
China, once again the first visiting country after Thailand, significantly increased its attendance by 12% compared to the previous edition. Following China, the top 10 visiting markets this year were: India, the Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Bangladesh, Republic of Korea, Taiwan, and Pakistan.
Interesting to note, Cambodia claimed in this edition a place in the top 20 visiting countries completing more and more the ASEAN markets coverage at the show. Despite the air space closure affecting visitors’ attendance right before the show dates, Pakistan managed to confirm its 11th position in the visiting countries’ list. Some others in the top 20 were Myanmar, Japan, Nepal, and Iran.
