ILDEX to open in the Philippines

Press Release Bangkok-Manila, 6 June 2019 – VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. ILDEX Exhibitions, the International livestock, dairy, meat processing and aquaculture exposition, premieres in the Philippines at the “ILDEX Forum, Philippines” on Thu. 27th June 2019 at Corregidor Room B, Century Park Hotel, Manila, the Philippines.

In a report by the Philippine Institute for Development Studies (PIDS), the livestock and poultry sectors present “a glimmer of light in local agriculture that is projected to continuously grow in the next decade”. The report also noted the consistent growth of the livestock and poultry industry, which has contributed positively to the economy even with less support from the government than other agricultural commodities. There is a clear indication that the Philippine government would like to reform the livestock sector and there is growing domestic demand.

This event aims to be a platform of expertise sharing knowledge on sustainable management in the pig and poultry business.  International speakers from global companies will present their views in three different categories including breeding, feed, and farm management. Chris Jackson, Export Manager at UKTAG Technology for Agriculture and Genetics will present ‘Optimum profitability in pig breeding depends on an extended genetic base and artificial insemination’ and the Buhler Group will share information on the topic ‘Proper feed mill equipment in pig farms can improve feed quality and operational efficiency’. Last but not least, Big Dutchman Philippines will share their strategy to encourage pig farmers to engage in the sustainable management of waste. ILDEX Forum expects to welcome livestock industry leaders as well as investors to also expand their business opportunities.

ILDEX Forum, Philippines will be held on Thursday 27th June 2019 at Corregidor Room B, Century Park Hotel, Manila, Philippines from 16.30 to 18.35 hrs. Registration is available at REGISTRATION LINK by 14 June 2019 on a first come, first served basis.


Ms.Panadda Kongma, Head of Compretence at the Center Livestock of VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific said “This essentially shows the readiness of the Philippine government to support and make a fresh start for the country’s livestock industry, which definitely creates great opportunities for the inclusion of technologies in improving the productivity of the livestock industry. Therefore, businesses can enjoy a new beginning in the Philippine livestock industry. The global and regional joint Livestock venture is also a promising means to inspire and earn domestic trust at the early stage”.
