BANGKOK, THAILAND — Following the success of the last FIAAP, Victam and GRAPAS event in Thailand the organizers have announced that sales for the next event are well ahead of schedule and that already well over 50% of the exhibition area has been reserved.

The 2012 event is Feb. 15-17, 2012, and will have a similar format to that of the successful 2010 show which attracted almost 6,000 industry executives from throughout South and South East Asia.

There will again be a FIAAP exhibition (feed ingredients, additives & formulation), a Victam exhibition (feed processing & biomass technology) & a GRAPAS exhibition (rice milling & grain processing).

All three trade shows will be co-located within one venue which will enable visitors to view the products and technology they require in order to formulate and operate safe and economic animal feed production and grain processing facilities. This also benefits the exhibitors as the three shows attract additional visitors from related but different industry sectors to view their displays.

There is one major change to the entire event though – the venue. The shows and their conferences will no longer be held at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre in Bangkok they will move to the impressive purpose built exhibition venue of BITEC in Bangkok.

The Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre is now just a few minutes from downtown Bangkok as from August this year the exhibition centre will be connected directly by Skytrain to the heart of this exciting vibrant city. As you would expect the Skytrain will be fully air-conditioned and will only cost a few Baht for the comfortable journey.

Again there will be specific technical conferences on aquafeed, feed ingredients, petfood, biomass technology, grain processing and the Thai Feed Conference. Further announcements on the conference series and programs will follow shortly.
