Two years after the onset of the pandemic, the global economy continues to recover but still faces significant challenges. Following the lull in the third quarter of 2021, Omicron has highlighted the unpredictability of the pandemic and exacerbated one of the main factors affecting the recovery: disruptions in supply chains. Another major risk is long-term inflation slippage. [1]  Even though the pandemic persists, the effect looks better when compared to the effect of Omicron and previous variants last year. Besides, many countries in Europe have announced new travel restrictions that are more flexible for all travelers.

However, almost all countries in Asia have maintained a balance between Low-Moderate-Strict Entry Requirements with the same normal rules that all travelers need to follow, such as fully vaccinated travelers, proof of a negative RT-PCR test result for COVID-19 issued no more than 72 hours prior to departure, and still having quarantine rules to follow. But beginning in March, many countries will relax some travel restrictions, signaling to the trade industry that it is time to re-plan your trip to the trade show in 2022.

Update: Vietnam Travel Restrictions

Vietnam’s tourism ministry proposed on Tuesday that the country be fully reopened to foreign visitors and that nearly all travel restrictions be lifted from March 15, three months earlier than planned. The proposal includes maintaining a one-day quarantine requirement for visitors plus requiring negative COVID-19 tests before departure and upon arrival. The ministries proposed that the government resume the unilateral visa exemption policy for 13 countries and the bilateral visa exemption for 88 countries and territories, as it had been prior to the pandemic.[2]

This is the perfect time to start finding the right market in which to showcase your product and service to the right international buyers and investors, which has always been the strongest part of what ILDEX Vietnam can offer your business. ILDEX Vietnam, the international livestock, dairy, meat processing, and aquaculture exposition, has grown to become the leading trade exhibition in the Asia region, attracting a large number of visitors and providing ample business opportunities. The 8th edition of ILDEX Vietnam is thus scheduled for August 3-5, 2022, at Hall A1, SECC, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, organized by VNU Asia Pacific and VEAS, the local organizer.

Highlights of the ILDEX Vietnam 2022

Presently, over 90 companies from 19 nations have already confirmed to exhibit in this year’s ILDEX Vietnam physical exhibition. Besides, VNU Asia Pacific, in collaboration with industry partners, has agreed to increase its focus on feed efficiency and quality in response to rising feed costs, utility costs, and a growing labor shortage, as well as to continue discussing the challenges posed by ASF and COVID-19 for all producers.

Furthermore, there are new global trends such as an increased emphasis on biosecurity and health amid new regulations and new animal welfare regulations, sustainability and traceability of feed proteins and meat processing; the shortage of labor in slaughterhouses; and price pressure. These focused sectors will be represented as the showcases on the show floor or discussed with the industry experts through the knowledgeable conference and meeting systems on-site and online. In the exhibition, visitors will have the opportunity to meet key international companies such as ABRA, Behn Meyer, Business France, Menon, Huali (Famsun), Kemin, CTC Pigtek, Jefo Nutrition, CJ Vietnam, Petersime, SKOV, SANOVO, and others who have confirmed to exhibit with ILDEX Vietnam.

Update: Indonesia Travel restrictions

In April, Indonesia is considering lifting all quarantine requirements for inbound travelers, as COVID-19 hospitalizations and fatality rates remain under control despite a resurgence in cases. In the meantime, the required quarantine period for incoming travelers who have received a third dose of vaccines is reduced to 3-days from 5-days starting next week, according to Luhut Panjaitan, the cabinet minister in charge of the pandemic response in Java and Bali, in his weekly briefing on Monday. Also, the PCR testing requirements will remain in place for those arriving travelers.[3]

The VNU Asia Pacific and Permata Kreasi Media, the organizers of ILDEX Indonesia, in collaboration with Aquatica Asia, have regularly monitored the travel restriction for international travelers, and we realize that this is a good period to restart the economy for the Indonesia livestock market. Thus, the 5th edition of ILDEX Indonesia is scheduled for November 9-11, 2022, at the ICE, Jakarta, Indonesia.

Highlights of the ILDEX Indonesia 2022

Sustainability has always been a major concern at the global level and is caused by the production processes of many businesses, just like the livestock business itself. The focused theme of ILDEX Indonesia will be on the new sustainable sources for feeds from insects, the alternative source of protein from animal feed, the challenges of animal welfare, the digitalization of meat processing towards effectiveness, nutrition, and dietary requirements for sustainable aquaculture in the future. All of these topics will be featured in the conference and seminar both on-site and online, with many keynote speakers from specific sectors and countries. At the ILDEX Indonesia, the top companies worldwide have already affirmed to exhibit in the show floor, including Jafpa, Ceva, Farmsco, Charoen Pokphand Group, Foodtech Indonesia, CJ, and more. According to the new travel restriction rules, we now have the green light to welcome more international traders and buyers looking for business opportunities in Asia.

Both ILDEX Vietnam and ILDEX Indonesia 2022 are prepared to offer a special ‘Hybrid package’ to create similar show experiences for the exhibitors who are unable to travel at this moment. The ‘V-Connect,’ the digital platform for the feed to food industry, will remain organized together with the physical exhibition.
