BANGKOK, THAILAND — Victam International BV will return to Bangkok, Thailand for its 25th anniversary, March 29-31, 2016.

The last event in Asia, which was in 2014, was very successful and completely sold out. The shows attracted over 6,000 industry executives from throughout South and South East Asia. Visitors came from a total of 63 countries.
The event, which will again be at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC), brings together three conferences:
• FIAAP Asia 2016 is the only specialist exhibition and conference for the ingredients, additives and formulation of feeds for animals, aquafeed and dry petfood for the expanding Asia/Pacific markets. This show directly relates with VICTAM Asia 2016 as this primarily profiles animal feed production equipment and technology.
• VICTAM Asia 2016 is Asia/Pacific’s largest exhibition of equipment, technology and ancillary systems required for the safe and effective production of feeds for animals, aquafeed and dry petfood and biomass pellet production. This show is co-located with GRAPAS Asia 2016 and FIAAP Asia 2016.
• GRAPAS Asia 2016 is the only trade show in the Asia/Pacific region for rice and flour milling systems, grain processing, storage, preservation and distribution, industrial noodle and pasta production, the manufacture of breakfast cereals and extruded snacks. Animal feeds require grains, etc. as a base for their production.

Biomass pellets is another area where the shows give added value to both the exhibitors and the visitors. Biomass pellets are produced through similar technology used in the production of feed pellets, so the manufacturers of this technology have adapted it so that they can market their pellet mills to the growing biomass industries of Asia. If you are visitor from a biomass pelleting plant you will also need the same equipment used within the other mills: silos, conveyors, bagging systems, etc.

There are a number of supporting conferences including: the FIAAP Conference 2016,
Petfood Forum Asia 2016, the Aquafeed Horizons Asia 2016, GRAPAS & Global Milling Conference Asia 2016, the 2nd ASEAN Feed & Rice Symposium and GMP+. A series of technical seminars will be organized by the exhibitors with a wide range of subjects.

In 2016, the members of the Federation of ASEAN Feed Milling Associations will meet for the 2nd ASEAN Feed Summit during FIAAP/VICTAM/GRAPAS Asia 2016.  Feed executives will discuss and help determine future policies and objectives, together with looking at the trading and financial implications of the impending ASEAN free trade zone.
