BANGKOK, THAILAND — Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the management teams of VICTAM Corp. and VIV worldwide have decided to reschedule VICTAM Asia and Health & Nutrition Asia in Bangkok to the third quarter of 2022.
The event, which had been scheduled for Jan. 12-14, 2022, will now take place Sept. 7-9, 2022, at a new location: IMPACT Halls 9-10 in Bangkok. This is the third time the event has been rescheduled since the pandemic began in March of 2020.
“In light of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, which has forced the Royal Thai Government to implement new strict measures to control the spread of the pandemic, and the delays of the vaccination programs in several Asian countries, VICTAM and VIV do not see the opportunity to realize a large-scale event on the short term,” event organizers said. “Looking at the ongoing travel restrictions from and to Asia, the organizers also believe that it is not possible to guarantee the event quality as we know them for. The postponement to the third quarter of 2022 is in the interest of the whole industry.”
The event, which was expected to attract several hundred exhibitors and several thousand delegates, is designed to provide a total solution from feed production to animal health and pharmaceuticals. In parallel with the exhibition, there is an extensive conference program available with specialized topics in the field of animal feed technology, animal nutrition and health.
VICTAM Corp. and VIV said they will continue their partnership in Europe in 2022 by co-locating VICTAM International and VIV Europe at the Jaarbeurs venue in Utrecht, Netherlands, May 31-June 2.
“With the high percentage of vaccinations in Europe there is no reason to doubt that this show can successfully go on as planned,” the event organizers said.
