Over the past 10 years, VNU Asia Pacific (VNU AP) has been organising the International Livestock, Dairy, Meat Processing and Aquaculture Exposition (ILDEX Indonesia) in collaboration with PKM.

Aquatica Asia aims to strengthen the aquaculture industry and will launch alongside ILDEX Indonesia. It will take place on odd-numbered years beginning from 15-17 September 2021 at the Indonesia Convention Exhibi-tion (ICE) in Jakarta. During even-numbered years Aquatica Asia will co-locate with a local government show.

Aquatica Asia will be a strategic step towards a dedicated business platform to improve the production of fisheries within the aquaculture industry. In past years, organizers have worked to include the aquaculture segment in ILDEX Indonesia, however, the new event will help to further highlight the industry for the existing show and industry professionals. 

“In 2020, Indonesia’s marine affairs and fisheries is one of the three main sectors contributing to the coun-try’s economic development. The efforts done by the Indonesian Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries are the appropriate steps. These efforts include improvements of fisheries production and commodities that have been dominating both exports and local markets such as shrimps, seaweed, catfish, grouper, etc,” stated Panadda Kongma, director of Agri-business and Operations of VNU Asia Pacific.

To maximise the customer’s return on investment, ILDEX Indonesia and Aquatica Asia will together present a full value chain of animal breeding, animal health, animal housing and farm equipment, industrial feed, grain and raw material processing equipment, feed, feed ingredients/additives, fish processing, seasoning, packaging, handling, refrigeration, laboratory, testing equipment and services, logistics and handling, wastewater treatment and hatching/incubation for livestock and aquaculture businesses.
