VIV China 2008: the future is bright
VIV China is still following an upward trend. The
exhibition took place from October 20-22, 2008 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 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
VIV China is renowned
for its unique combination of attracting strong exhibitor and visitor groups
from both China and abroad. With its 2008-edition, VIV China strengthened this
position: 312 Chinese and 134 international companies from 23 countries
participated. The 19,035 visitors, more than ever before, came from an
all-time-high of 75 countries.
These figures reflect the strong,
international development of animal husbandry in China. “Exhibitors were very
satisfied with the origin of the visitors. Not only were there more visitors
from more Chinese production areas than in 2006, the international visitors also
came from a larger number of countries than in the show's history of five
editions,” says Berculo.
