VIV Turkey 2017 was yet another fantastic successful exhibition to take place in Turkey

The event this year was held at the CNR exhibition centre and was organised by HKF Trade Fairs, who are a member of the VIV World Wide Exhibitions, owned by VNU Exhibitions Europe in the Netherlands, and were honoured in June 2004 - as the 22nd WPCA World Congress Exhibition and in August 2005 as the 14th World’s Veterinary Poultry Congress Exhibition.

The meeting of the poultry industry in Turkey, ‘VIV Turkey 2017’ opened its doors to the trade visitors for the eighth time in multiple halls (9, 10 and 11) of Istanbul Expo Centre with an additional area for equipment outside the fairground.

This year’s fair attracted more than 550 exhibitors, with around 160 from Turkey and over 390 from outside of Turkey, as they presented their newest products and services for three days. Growing every year, VIV Turkey is now the leading international trade fair of its kind in the region, the event is an UFI (The Global Association of the Exhibition Industry) approved event and is recognised throughout the sector as the sole International Poultry Trade Fair of Turkey.

The show is a comprehensive feed show covering everything from feed nutrition, through to feed milling and feed delivery as well as all other aspects that cover the ‘Poultry Meat & Egg Safety Products’.

VIV’s ‘Feed to Meat’ concept covers the entire animal protein chain, from primary production to finished products. The exhibition represents all parts of the meat production process. The conference aims to facilitate the transfer of knowledge and technology between Turkish poultry sector professionals by creating an international network platform that will foster development for all parties.

This year VIV Turkey was officially opened following the speeches of Deputy Secretary of Republic of Turkey Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock Mehmet Hadi Tunç, Professor Dr Rüveyde Akbay, President of World’s Poultry Science Association (WPSA) Turkish branch and Bekir Çakıcı, General Manager of HKF Trade Fairs.
