Once again FIAAP, Victam & GRAPAS Asia proved that quality is the only thing that counts!
This was the early verdict of visitors, conference delegates and exhibitors alike.
As a newcomer to this industry, and its events, FIAAP, VICTAM & GRAPAS Asia offered me an enlightening introduction into the world of feed and food milling.
Held at the BITEC, an exhibition centre near the outskirts of Bangkok, FIAAP, VICTAM & GRAPAS Asia gathers together the animal feed and grain processing industries under one roof, to serve the Asian market.
Originally just VICTAM, first held in a car park in 1991, FIAAP and GRAPAS joined ranks to provide a show replete with all the information and products necessary to those in the feed and food milling industry – and this year was no exception.
Official figures illustrate that the size of the show increased this year making it 11 percent larger than the 2014 show, and with 223 exhibitors and co-exhibitors from 28 countries the show was once again sold out.
Walking around the BITEC centre and speaking to show exhibitors, the general consensus was that VICTAM Asia 2016 – as it’s still referred to - was a success, not only because of the amount of visitors, but also the ancillary elements that supported the show, such as the conferences and highly anticipated evening events.
Exhibitors held that one of the many qualities of FIAAP, VICTAM & GRAPAS Asia is that they are able to have serious discussions and negotiations with their clients and new potential clients that they meet during the show, agreeing on the high quality of visitors.
