Joining forces to surpass expectations and delight with innovation

On September 28, 2017, for the first time the Livestock and Aquaculture Taiwan Expo and Forum 2017 opened its doors to a ‘mass of people’. The event was held at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Centre (September 28-30).

Organisers Christopher Eve, Senior Vice President of UBM and Sabine Liu, (GM, Asia Ltd Taiwan Branch) were delighted with the turn out, Mr Eve said, “We are all so excited about this show because it has surpassed our expectations and all the exhibitors are very pleased with the first day’s performance.”

“At this show, exhibitors are representing the agriculture, livestock and aquaculture sectors with a heavy focus on innovative and eco-friendly technology,” expanded Ms Liu.

The event attracted 194 companies from 18 different countries across the globe, including: Korea, Chile, Denmark and Canada. Although a truly international gathering, Taiwan was well represented, with 50 members of the Taiwan Agriculture Machinery Manufacturer’s Association in attendance.

Mr Eve commented, “So we've got the Livestock shows in Malaysia and Vietnam and the Philippines, so we're really happy that we have one now in Taiwan because I think there's a lot of potential here.”

He continued, “We have exhibitors with poultry cages, turnkey equipment, antibiotic free feed and feed additives as well as aquaculture systems which are being developed by Taiwan’s top IT companies. We also have bio fertilisers and pesticides, automatic environmental control systems, animal waste recycling systems and many, many more advanced technology and products.”

Designed as a ‘one-stop comprehensive international B2B trading platform,’ the 300 booths provided ample opportunity for industry experts to share their latest products and thoughts on the future of agriculture in Taiwan and further afield.

Ms Liu added, “Exhibitors say they are very happy not only because the business people they've met have placed orders, but also all of them are end-users and this is what they are looking for. So today many people have come to our sales office to rebook for next year.”
