Inspiring International Innovations at VIV Europe 2010

30 June 2009

NETHERLANDS - VIV Europe 2010 will be packed with inspiring international innovations for future farming, says the show organiser.

The ultimate meeting place for international top decision makers in the Feed-to-Meat industry will be back at home base in Utrecht, the Netherlands on 20 to 22 April 2010. Already 200 companies have booked a stand and cover 14,500 square metres. Another 5,000 square metres is in option.

This edition VIV Europe will focus on two special themes: Eggs! and Meat Safety. "We have found innovative partners and by bundling our forces, we will put Eggs! and Meat Safety prominently on the map at VIV Europe 2010," said Wendy Voermans, Project manager VIV Europe.

Meat Safety

VIV and Positive Action Publications take up the challenge to map Meat Safety as a special theme at VIV Europe. Alongside the exhibition a dedicated conference is organised where themes and topics such as safety in meat production and processing will be high on the agenda.

Dedicated co-operations and conferences

In addition to the exhibition and the special themes conferences, there will be a high-quality conference programme covering current trends and technologies and contributes to the visitors' need for additional information. Dedicated co-operations and conferences have been set up with Rabobank during the official opening and Wageningen Business School (part of the Wageningen University and Research Centre).

Prior and during the first exhibition day (on 18-20 April), Wageningen Business School will organise an international postgraduate course in cooperation with the Catholic University of Leuven in Belgium (K.U. Leuven) and the World's Poultry Science Association (WPSA). The theme of the course will be 'Nutrition and Climate, new developments'.

At the Opening Conference, Rabobank, the official knowledge partner of VIV Worldwide, will present the latest trends and developments in the animal protein industry.
