VIV China 2012: WPC 2016 and VIV China 2016 Enter Strategic Partnership

We end our series on VIV China 2012 with some great news. After such an exciting and successful exhibition this year we are delighted to have been involved and look forward to attending future events along with our fellow industry peers and clients.

Our last installment relates to the event but a little before it started this year. On Monday August 6, 2012, the representatives of the World’s Poultry Science Association (WPSA) China Branch, the Chinese Association of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine (CAAV) and VNU Exhibitions Europe have signed the agreement regarding the Strategic Partnership for the organization of the World’s Poultry Congress (WPC) 2016 and VIV China 2016 in Beijing. WPC 2016 will take place in the China National Convention Center (CNCC), September 5-9. VIV China will be held at the New China International Exhibition Center (NCIEC), September 6-8. The signing ceremony took place at WPC 2012 in Salvador, Brazil.

All 4 partners foresee in this Strategic Partnership a winning co-operation to unite Poultry scientists and businessmen worldwide in Beijing in September 2016. The XXV WPC 2016 is co-hosted by the China Branch of the World’s Poultry Science Association (WPSA-CN) and the CAAV. VIV China 2016 is organized by VNU Exhibitions Europe, the Head Quarters of VIV Worldwide, and its Chinese partner Beijing Tech Convention and Exhibition Center.

During the signing ceremony in Salvador, Ning Yang, Ph.D., President, China Branch of WPSA and Ruwan Berculo, Project Manager VIV, officially announced this exclusive co-operation. Ning Yang comments: “The exhibition has become an important activity as part of the World’s Poultry Conferences. In VIV China we have found our preferred partner to establish a high-quality international exhibition”. Ruwan Berculo adds: “At VIV, we value the opportunity to bring Business and Science together, which is in the interest of a bright future for the global Poultry industries. Our Strategic Partnership with WPC 2016 forms a true highlight in the mission to strengthen our events”.

Although it is still 4 years away from now, WPSA-CN, CAAV, VNUE E and BT have already defined an extensive program of activities to ensure that WPC 2016 and VIV China 2016 will become one combined event for all players in our industry. Over the course of time, more detailed information will become available.

Naturally we here at Perendale Publishers are very excited about this development which signifies a great enhancement in the importance for VIV China, remarking its reputation as a not to be missed event. Our representatives were so glad to have attended VIV China 2012 where we met so many of a valued clients and even made some new friends along the way.

What we’ve been up to.. (September 11-18, 2012.)

Hello again to our dedicated subscribers and listed companies. To say it’s been an eventful month for IMD would be an understatement as gargantuan as Red Dwarf himself (well perhaps not that big but it has been pretty hectic).

As mentioned in my previous post the first draft of IMD21 was sent to the printers last week (September 7, 2012) and I am pleased to announce that it has since been put to press. This means that 8,000 printed copies of IMD21 will soon be sent out to those of you who have ordered yours for 2012/13.

Don’t forget you can still order a copy of IMD21 simply by visiting www.internationalmilling.com and clicking the relevant link, or indeed you can visit our publishers homepage at www.perendale.com.

Some of you have since contacted me with new artwork and materials for IMD21, unfortunately the deadline for this did pass some time ago for the printed edition. However for those of you who feel like you might have missed the boat, there is still plenty of opportunity to promote yourselves via our online editions (these can be found on Issuu, Scribd and Docstock) or right here at MillingInternational. So keep in touch, don’t forget that thanks to our continuous innovation we can take your products further through online advertising.

After the busy two months leading up to the printing of IMD21 there seemed no better way to celebrate than enjoying a wonderful day in London with the London & South-East Millers Society (LSEMS). Accompanied by several of my colleagues I got the chance to meet some important figures from the UK milling community, of which I am now pleased to be a member.

I should say a big thank you to Tony Evers (Secretary for LSEMS) for inviting us along and for the staff a Luc’s Brasserie for catering the event.

Now though, the planning begins for IMD22 and the hard work starts right here. In the coming weeks I will be holding a number of meetings with my fellow colleagues and designers on how we continue the progression of the industries most comprehensive directory. With this in mind I would love to hear your feedback or input!

Until next time!
