“As a visitor I can now come to this one event and find what I need for my mill and all under one roof!”
This was just a quote from one visitor to Victam Asia 2010 held recently in Bangkok, Thailand. Apart from the exhibitions also the conferences were well received.
From the exhibitors a similar sound was to be heard: “We were able to sit down and talk to our customers, this show brings the right people to our booths, the decision makers,” an exhibitor said.
Quality was the word that was being used to describe the event – the type and number of visitors, the conference delegates, the exhibits at the trade shows and the series of technical conferences. All seemed to be of high quality.
Important to Thailand
In opening the event Dr.Kanok Katikarn, Advisor to the Minister, Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operatives, said how important the feed and grain industries are to Thailand today.

That holding such events as FIAAP Asia, Victam Asia and GRAPAS Asia 2010 in Bangkok helped to ensure that Thailand would be at the forefront of technology in feed processing, rice milling and grain processing.
Especially as Thailand is a major exporter throughout the world of poultry, shrimp, fish and of course rice.
Dr. Kanok visited many of the exhibition stands and was impressed at the variety and quality of the products on display.
It seems that it was not just Dr. Kanok who was impressed with the event, visitors from throughout Thailand, South and South East Asia, Australia, New Zealand and even from as far away as Mexico and Argentina flocked in to see, examine and discuss the wide and varied range of products on display.
All of the technical conferences were well received and attended. Readers are able to purchase copies of the papers by visiting www.victam.com

The next Victam Asia will be in spring of 2012, but the first upcoming Victam show will be 3-5 May 2011 in Cologne, Germany.
