China Animal Husbandry Exhibition: The largest animal husbandry event in the world's biggest agribusiness market
The China Animal Husbandry Expo (CAHE) will be held from May 18th to 20th at China's Nanjing International Expo Centre. Organised by the China Animal Agriculture Association (CAAA), the 10th edition of this must-attend event for Chinese livestock professionals, as it covers a wide scope including livestock health, livestock handling machinery, meat products and bio energy.
Last year's three day event attracted 95,668 visitors from 30 countries and regions and featured 805 exhibitors in total. With an expanded floor space of 100,000 square metres, this year's CAHE is expected to be bigger and better. Besides the main show, the 3rd Bio-Energy Expo and 2nd China Animal Products Fair will also be held under the same roof. With dedicated exhibition halls for feed and feed additives, pigs, poultry and animal health, exhibitors are better able to attract their target audiences.
The event hopes to build upon the past nine years' focus on promoting innovation within the industry, such as instituting the Bio-Energy Expo and collaborating with China Central Television (CCTV) to put together "China's developing animal husbandry sector", a large scale industry promotion campaign. A "thousand-man trade procurement group" set up by the organising committee further adds value to the event by helping visitors to negotiate deals.
There will be special, daily-based themes including machinery day, animal health day, feed day, and animal husbandry day. Each is organised by professional organisations and media that caters to individual needs. In addition, many seminars and conferences regarding various aspect of animal husbandry will be concurrently held over the span of the exhibition.
New additions to this year's event include an animal husbandry investment conference and the "Innovative animal husbandry product launch", which is expected to be a key highlight of this year's event. It is hoped that these new events will help make CAHE a more well-rounded and comprehensive show for anyone interested in China's burgeoning - and fast transforming - livestock sector.
Those intending to visit should note that unlike previous years, the official opening for CAHE 2012 will be on the second day (May 19) instead. The first day is reserved for exhibitors and guests who pre-registered online; those who do not will have to pay CNY 50 (US$7.94) to enter the exhibition centre. Entry on the second and third day however, is free. So do make your booking to avoid disappointment!
