The first Victam International show since 2007 will be held this year and will include such events as an opening speech by the president of the European Feed Manufacturers Federation, several technical seminars and Petfood Forum Europe 2011.
“It has been four years since the last Victam International exhibition and a lot has happened in the industries that this world famous exhibition serves," said Henk van de Bunt, general manager at Victam. "This will be reflected in this new event. There will now be three trade shows within the exhibition hall and seven different conferences for the international delegates to attend." The event, which will be held in Cologne, Germany, will have 300 exhibitors from 28 countries and will focus on everything from the manufacturing of petfood and aqua feeds to equipment for production plants and distribution systems.
Petfood Forum Europe will take place on May 4, the second day of Victam International.
