Aquatica Asia, new aquaculture event to be held alongside ILDEX Indonesia
Aquatica Asia aims to strengthen the aquaculture industry in the region and will be held alongside ILDEX Indonesia on September 15-17, 2021.
Over the past 10 years, VNU Asia Pacific (VNU AP) has been organizing the International Livestock, Dairy, Meat Processing and Aquaculture Exposition (ILDEX Indonesia) in collaboration with PT Permata Kreasi Media (PKM). As PKM transitions to a new business entity named PT Global Permata Perkasa (GPP), the group is working to develop a pilot project, Aquatica Asia.
Aquatica Asia aims to strengthen the aquaculture industry and will be held alongside ILDEX Indonesia. It will take place on odd-numbered years, beginning September 15-17, 2021, at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) in Jakarta. During even-numbered years, Aquatica Asia will co-locate with a local government show.
Aquatica Asia will be a strategic step towards a dedicated business platform to improve the production of fisheries within the aquaculture industry. In recent years, organizers have worked to include the aquaculture segment in ILDEX Indonesia, however, the new event will help further highlight the industry for the existing show and industry professionals.
To maximize the customer’s return on investment, ILDEX Indonesia and Aquatica Asia will together present a full value chain of animal breeding, animal health, animal housing and farm equipment, industrial feed, grain and raw material processing equipment, feed, feed ingredients/additives, fish processing, seasoning, packaging, handling, refrigeration, laboratory, testing equipment and services, logistics and handling, wastewater treatment and hatching/incubation for livestock and aquaculture businesses.
The event will cover over 10,000 m2 of the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE). Since 2018, ILDEX has had key buyers throughout their editions and activities. Two hundred key buyers, who passed qualifying criteria, were invited from ASEAN countries and will continue the Hosted Buyer Program for ILDEX Indonesia 2021, co-located with Aquatica Asia. Key buyers will focus on livestock and aquaculture sectors and come from the exhibitor’s research and referral, who recommend potential key buyers meet onsite. The ILDEX team will prepare welcome packages and special privileges for buyers.
ILDEX Indonesia and Aquatica Asia are scheduled for September 15-17, 2021 at the Indonesian Convention Exhibition (ICE) in Jakarta. For more information, visit www.ildex-indonesia.com and www.aquaticaasia.com.
