Three agricultural shows to be held in HCM City

Agriculture Hub Vietnam, the country’s largest exhibition in the agricultural sector and comprising three separate international exhibitions on livestock breeding, cultivation, and agricultural machinery and equipment, will be held in Ho Chi Minh City in March.

The three exhibitions are HortEx Vietnam (the first exhibition and conference on horticultural and floricultural production and processing technology), Agri Machinery & Tech Vietnam Expo (the first international show on agricultural machinery, equipment and technologies), and ILDEX Vietnam (the seventh international exhibition on livestock, dairy, meat processing and aquaculture).

They are expected to attract around 420 exhibitors from 35 countries and territories, including Viet Nam, France, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, the US, Japan, Canada, the Republic of Korea, China, and India.

Speaking at a press briefing for the event last week, Nguyen Ba Vinh, director of Minh Vi Exhibition and Advertisement Service Co Ltd (VEAS), one of the organisers, said: “Many foreign exhibitors will come for the first time to Vietnam. And they want to connect with Vietnamese companies.”

They will showcase the latest services and technologies related to livestock breeding, cultivation and agricultural machinery and equipment. The event will also feature conferences and seminars to provide visitors with up-to-date information about the sectors, he said.

Co-organised along with partners from Thailand, the Netherlands and China, Agriculture Hub Vietnam will offer domestic businesses a good chance to seek partners for market expansion and acquire state-of-art technologies from leading countries.

The event, to be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Centre from March 14 to 16, is expected to attract more than 15,000 trade visitors.
