30/06/2017: Livestock 2017 Philippines Expo

Second National Aquaculture Summit and the first National Aquaculture event both succeed in the The Philippines

The National Aquaculture Summit 2017, a sub-section of the ‘Livestock Philippines 2017’ exposition held in Manila, The Philippines at the end of May 2017, proved to be a popular two-day event and formed part of the first outing for ‘Aquaculture Philippines 2017’, which ran over a full three days and alongside ‘Feeds Expo Philippines 2017’ and ‘Philmeat 2017 Expo and Forum’ all hosted by the UBM Malaysia.

Not only was the National Aquaculture Summit 2017 the central part of the country’s famous ‘Livestock Philippines’, being located in the exhibition hall itself and attracting over 650 attendees, it was one that everyone attending the show, both visitors and exhibitors alike, would have been proud of as it became a solid contributor to the overall success of this year’s multi-faceted event.

A wider reach

The Summit was The Philippines’ International Aquaculture, Fisheries and Seafood Industry event and a highly anticipated part of the livestock sector’s event calendar, particularly throughout this country’s diverse aquaculture sector, within Asia itself and offering a key networking point for aquaculturists and agriculturists worldwide.

The show was held from Wednesday to Friday, May 24-26, 2017 at the SMX Convention Centre, Pasay City, Metro Manila, The Philippines. When a show is as influential as this, it is important that it has not only the backing and promotion that it deserves, but it also needs space.

With a total exhibition area of 9,130 square metres, this exhibition pushed the boundaries of this facility. Of course, this was for the whole event and not just the aquaculture. Over 250 exhibitors were present representing companies from around 30 countries, and included aquaculture engineers, fish farmers, fish processing industrialists, fish and seafood processors, nutritionists, veterinarians and many more.

International Aquafeed magazine was honoured to have its publisher Roger Gilbert invited to give the keynote address for the conference on Trends in the Global Aquaculture Industry’. Besides the 650 attending the Summit, a head count recorded over 10,440 attendees on the exhibition floor over the three days. Compared to the 2015 show, this represents an increased 35 percent.

International visitors were up by 42 percent. The event offered exhibitors a valuable opportunity to launch new products, meet decision makers and promote their products and services. It is a rare thing to find an event that so definitively provides aquaculture professionals with such direct access to qualified suppliers from all over the globe, representing all aspects of the aquaculture industry and at the centre of a livestock event.
