VIV China 2018 moves to Nanjing to boost international access

59VIVChina2016The official opening of VIV China 2018, the international trade fair covering the complete gamut of supply chain from feed to food for forward-thinking businesses located in the People Republic of China, is just a month away

VIV China 2018, scheduled to be held from 17- 19 September, will wear a fresh look. The three-day expo is now moving to a new location- Nanjing.

Part of Jiangsu Province and located along the Yangtze River Valley, Nanjing was the Southern capital of China in ancient times. Today it stands at the heart of a provincial animal production industry valued at almost US$799bn per year. Jiangsu Province is an important base for many international companies serving the Chinese market.

The modern facilities of the International Expo Centre in Nanjing and the city’s international and national transport links make this a great location in terms of access and amenities. VIV China’s organisers have extended the expo's panChina reach by strengthening ties with major agricultural and animal husbandry agencies in the key regions of the country such as Anhui, Henan, Hebei, Hunan, Hubei, Jiangxi and Guangdong.

Exhibitors cover the entire supply chain

The expo ground is spread over an area of 40,000sq m and will have more than 600 Chinese and international exhibitors.

The exhibitors include specialists in complete feeds, ingredients and feed additives, feed milling equipment and animal health, global and local leaders in systems for breeding, hatching and farm production, innovators in IT and automation and recognised brands in processing and handling. The companies specialising in laboratory equipment and services, logistics, refrigeration, packaging, consultancy, waste treatment, bioenergy technology, aquaculture systems would also put up booths.

VIV China 2018 expects to welcome 20,000 visitors from nearly 90 countries. Decision makers and management level professionals will account for 35 per cent of the visitors, reflecting the improved overall audience quality delivered by means of strategic industry co-operation, enhanced marketing campaigns and high-quality conference contents.
