Exhibition area at Thailand's Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Center for the co-located Victam, FIAAP and GRAPAS 2012 tradeshows is more than 50% sold, show organizers announced. The three tradeshows will take place February 15-17, 2012, and will have a similar format to the 2010 event with the three shows co-located in one exhibition hall along with a number of technical conferences, including Petfood Forum Asia 2012.
The FIAAP exhibition will focus on feed ingredients, additives and formulation, including petfood; the Victam exhibition will focus on feed processing and biomass technology; and the GRAPAS exhibition will focus on rice milling and grain processing. The event also includes specific technical conferences on topics like petfood, aquafeed, feed ingredients, biomass technology, grain processing and the Thai Feed Conference.
One of these conferences will be Petfood Forum Asia 2012, which is scheduled for February 16. Petfood Forum Asia announced its call for papers, with an abstract submission deadline of September 1, 2011. The content advisory board seeks abstracts from potential speakers on topics including, but not limited to: the petfood market in Asia and around the world; nutrition and ingredients; packaging; safety and regulatory issues specific to countries in the region or to export countries; processing and production; company profiles; and new product developments.
