COLOGNE, GERMANY — Victam International, the organizers of the feed and grain processing exhibitions in Bangkok and Cologne, will celebrate its 50th Anniversary during its next event in Germany.
The event will once again take place in Cologne and will feature three exhibitions in one event. The exhibitions are FIAAP International, VICTAM International and GRAPAS International 2015. The shows, along with a series of technical conferences, will be June 9-11, 2015, at Koelnmesse.
This combination of the three shows together proved highly successful at the last event in Cologne when almost 300 companies, from all over the world, came together in what was the largest dedicated international event for the animal feed and grain processing industries.
Indications are already showing that the 2015 event will be equally successful, with reservations and interest coming from many potential exhibitors, again from all over the world.
The reason for the success is the related exhibitions. FIAAP (animal feed ingredients and additives) is directly related to VICTAM (animal feed processing technology and ancillary equipment). Whilst VICTAM is also related to GRAPAS (flour/rice milling and grain processing together with ancillary equipment). The relationship of the shows brings a higher number of exhibitors which then also attracts a greater number of senior executives from the industries they serve.
VICTAM International also profiles the expanding and increasingly important sector of biomass pelleting technology. The reason for this being that manufacturers of feed pelleting technology often also produce similar technology for biomass pellets. Germany and its neighbors consume large quantities of biomass pellets, both industrially and domestically.
