New VIV initiative in South East Asia

VIV launches the VIV Animal Health & Nutrition Tour Asia 2008, a networking event aimed at key buyers in the animal health and nutrition industry. It starts with a golf tournament.

After the success of VIV Asia 2007, the markets for animal health and
nutrition expressed their wish to be able to meet key buyers of the industry
face-to-face on an annual basis.

VIV is meeting this demand by organising
a new and exclusive event for the top of the animal health & nutrition
industry in spring 2008: the VIV Animal Health & Nutrition (AHN) Tour
Asia.

At this tour, a select group of 25 suppliers can meet face-to-face
with both CEOs and opinion leaders as well as small and medium-sized buyers of
Asia’s most rapidly developing markets, Indonesia, the Philippines and
Malaysia.

Golf tournament
The VIV AHN tour kicks off with the a
golf tournament on March 8th in Bangkok, Thailand. For six days afterwards, the
tour will travel through the capitals of Malaysia, Indonesia and the
Philippines.

Each capital city will host a one and a half day event,
consisting of a half-day CEO conference and a full-day meet-your-suppliers expo
with technical conferences.

Ideas into action
Every event
starts with a late afternoon conference on the first day. VIV has invited three
keynote speakers to give a 20-minute speech at each CEO Conference. A fourth
keynote speaker will be invited by one of the participating companies. The
conference closes with a 30-minute forum discussion.

Delegates to this
CEO Conference will be top buyers, invited by both VIV and participants.
Attendance to the CEO Conference is on an invitation-only basis.

Keynote
speakers invited by VIV for the CEO conference are:

  • Nigel Horrox, (veterinary
    issues) – Optimising bird productivity

  • Darren Gedge, (food safety issues) –
    Maximising product safety

  • Gordon Butland, (finance issues) – Optimising
    financial strength

Meet your suppliers

The second day of each
event consists of a tabletop expo and technical conferences, where interested
visitors can meet the top 25 suppliers of animal health and nutrition products.
Entrance to the meet-your-suppliers expo is free of charge.
