Victam Asia 2012 has announced a new venue and earlier dates for the event to be held in Bangkok, Thailand: The venue will switch to the Bangkok International Trade Exhibition Centre, BITEC, between the city center and the new international airport. The show will be held February 15 through 17.
Previously, the Asian event — held every two years — has taken place at Bangkok's Queen Sirikit exhibition complex on dates in March. Victam Asia organizers say the new venue will offer superior and more modern facilities, free of supporting pillars in exhibition halls for better traffic flow. Victam Asia 2012 will be joined by Petfood Forum Asia 2012, as well as the Asian versions of the FIAAP feed ingredients and GRAPAS grain events which run parallel to the Victam International show coming to Cologne, Germany, in May 2011.
