The visitors will get to witness three days of enriching content and networking. “We are looking forward to welcoming approximately 8,000 visitors from around the world, and especially from the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC),” said Renate Wiendels, senior project manager of VIV worldwide.

International insights by industry experts 

VIV, along with its content partners, has planned a line-up of interesting trade-oriented conferences to make visitors’ experience more valuable. 

Associations and organisations such as Federation of Asian Veterinary Association (FAVA), Emirates Veterinary Association (EVA) MEAP, WATT Global Media, WPSA, Global Dairy Farmers, NABC, HubOrange, and Aquafeed International, are some of the names that will deliver insightful sessions.

The conference organised by FAVA will throw light on ‘One health approach on antimicrobial stewardship in livestock production by ensuring feed and food safety’ and will cover multiple species such as cattle, camel, aquaculture and poultry

PMRT (Poultry Marketing Round Table) will focus on uncertainties that have affected the poultry sector and the possible scenario of crisis management. While Aquatic MEA will bring in experts to talk about Aquafeed Extrusion and Aquafeed Nutrition for both fish and shrimp production, the Dairy Seminar will elaborate on topics such as TMR feeding, setting up farms in semi-arid regions, infectious diseases in the dairy sector and much more. 

 “At VIV MEA, we aim to bring delegations and industry leaders from all over the world to share their global perspective on a variety of topics,” affirmed Wiendels.

Saudi Arabia to be the Country of Honour

VIV MEA is at the heart of MENA region. Staying true to this regional spectrum, this year, Saudi Arabia will be recognised as the ‘Country of Honour’. Under its Vision 2030, the country’s Ministry of Environment Water and Agriculture (MEWA) is looking at increasing broiler production self-sufficiency to 85% by 2030. Interestingly, last year, Saudi Arabia produced 900k MT of chicken, which is roughly 60% of domestic consumption and is now aiming at nearly 1.55m MT a year. The ministry is undertaking various initiatives to achieve broiler production self-sufficiency – it is offering direct production-based subsidies to local chicken meat producers, encouraging foreign companies to invest in the Saudi market with a focus on poultry and offering 100% ownership to local producers among others. MEWA also aims to increase the production volume of aquaculture farms to 600K tonnes by 2030 (65% of the market).

While Saudi Arabia is VIV MEA Country of Honour for this edition, the show organisers are looking forward to welcoming all professional visitors from the GCC countries as well as from Africa and the rest of Asia to mark their presence for VIV MEA 2021 in Abu Dhabi.
