Mrs. Ureerat Ratanaprukse, Consul-General at the Royal Thai Consulate-General, Ho Chi Minh City delivered a speech at ILDEX Vietnam 2018 and said that “For people in this industry, ILDEX needs no further introduction as there have already been six successful editions. With over 300 regional and international participating brands including 12 from Thailand, ILDEX Vietnam 2018 will serve as a bridge of opportunities connecting sellers and buyers both for Vietnamese and international participants. It can be surely expected that the Expo will provide beneficial technologies in response to the growing demand for livestock, aquaculture and dairy products in Vietnam. In addition, the Expo is also in line with the policy of Thailand 4.0 and the Vietnamese Government’s Industry 4.0 as well as the Master Plan on Hi-tech Agricultural Zones through 2020, which will help to integrate Vietnam’s economy into the global supply chain. Therefore, in my view, it can complement Vietnam’s Industry 4.0 in terms of agricultural technology and processing and boost trade and investment relations between our two countries.”




In two years, ILDEX Vietnam 2020 will continue to expand and the event will be held from 18 to 20 March 2020 at Hall A1-A2, SECC in HCM, Vietnam. Demand for space is increasing and is stronger-than-ever from returning and new exhibitors who want to expand their businesses in Asia. Do not miss your chance to join ILDEX Vietnam 2020, the eighth edition of the International Livestock and Dairy Meat Processing, and Aquaculture Exposition. The exhibition continues to move forward with the objective “Livestock Industry Growth, Customized Service.”

Nthabiseng Maude Mthethwa – Deputy Director at the Resource Based Industries Invest South Africa, Department: Trade and Industry Republic of South Africa said that “This is the first time that we have participated in ILDEX Vietnam to see how the exhibition is, and to find opportunities for African companies in the future. We will definitely come back again, probably with 10-15 companies for South Africa to have booths here and then we can join the seminars and business discussions to expand the market with local people.”


“I’ve been to many exhibitions but ILDEX Vietnam is the first time for me. It is a good exhibition because many people walking inside the hall are real customers, really important buyers and the leading important exhibitors in this industry. The Hosted Buyer program is a nice program because as we are buyers and plan to buy something, and we are looking for some equipment but we don’t know how to find it or what to do. So the program is really helping us to find the right people and that’s really good” according to Mr. Atakan Yilmaz CELIK – International Buyer, ACC Otomasyon, Turkey
