There are three months to go until the opening of VIV China 2018, the international trade fair that runs every two years as the event covering animal production and processing from feed to food for forward-thinking businesses located in the PRC.
The edition of VIV China running from Monday 17th September to Wednesday 19th September 2018 will bring a fresh look. In addition to an extended program of attractions, it represents a significant change of location by moving to Nanjing.
At the heart of Chinese animal production
Part of Jiangsu Province and located along the Yangtze River Valley, in ancient times Nanjing was prominent as the Southern capital of China. Today it stands at the heart of a provincial animal production industry valued at almost ¥117 billion per year. Jiangsu Province itself has bred a large number of leading enterprises in this industry and it is an important base for many international companies that have established a local presence to serve the China market.
The modern facilities of the International Expo Center in Nanjing and the city’s international and national transport links make this a great location where global suppliers and Chinese business leaders can meet comfortably. VIV China’s organizers have acted to extend the trade fair’s all-China reach by strengthening ties of co-operation with major agricultural and animal husbandry agencies in key regions of the country — in Anhui, Henan, Hebei, Hunan, Hubei, Jiangxi and Guangdong as well as in Jiangsu.
Exhibitors cover the whole supply chain
The exhibition for the show in September will exceed 40,000 square meters of gross area and will present over 600 Chinese and international exhibitors. The companies represented on its stands cover the whole supply chain from feed to food.
They include specialists in complete feeds, ingredients and feed additives, companies in feed milling equipment and animal health, global and local leaders in systems for breeding, hatching and farm production, innovators in IT and automation and recognized brands in processing and handling. Alongside them will be the suppliers of laboratory testing equipment and services, logistics/ refrigeration/ packaging, media/ consultancy, waste treatment equipment and bioenergy technology, also aquaculture systems.
