New Biofach trade fair in Thailand
Biofach goes to Thailand: Biofach South East Asia will become the seventh member of the Biofach family when it opens its doors for the first time at the Impact Exhibition Center in Nonthaburi, Bangkok, from 12 to 15 July 2018. It will take place at the same time as the Natural Expo South East Asia.
Natural Expo South East Asia showcases near-natural products that are in the process of being certified as organic. Both trade fairs are being organized and run by NürnbergMesse in cooperation with the DIT (Department of Internal Trade), a department of Thailand’s Ministry of Commerce, and are replacing the long-established Organic & Natural Expo, which has been held by the DIT in Bangkok for the last six years. NürnbergMesse is expecting the inaugural event to have roughly 250 exhibiting companies and occupy approximately 2,000 m2. 45,000 trade visitors and end consumers are anticipated.
As at all Biofach trade fairs, there will be a focus on networking between national and international industry players. All the Biofach exhibitions outside of Germany are designed to be regional trade fairs that reflect their respective local markets. “This new event is important for growth of the organic market throughout South East Asia and is intended to accelerate this even more in terms of supply and demand in the future,” explained Markus Reetz, NürnbergMesse’s Executive Director of International Exhibitions. With regard to the event’s concept, the product show is to be supplemented by a conference, the Biofach South East Asia Conference, which will be held at the same time. The conference will serve as an opportunity for broad-impact coverage of region-relevant organic topics and is expected to be developed into an information and communication platform for the whole of the South East Asian organic sector in the future.
