Apr 11 2017 Comments 0
The fifth edition of analytica Vietnam, which was held from 29 to 31 March 2017, in Hanoi, produced an excellent overall result. 121 exhibitors from 17 countries, more nations than ever before, presented their products and solutions for the laboratory technology, analysis, biotechnology and diagnostics industries. There was considerable interest in the topics of analytica Vietnam: a total of 3,514 visitors obtained information during the fair about the developments within the industry.
Susanne Grödl, Project Manager of the analytica trade fairs at Messe München, summarised the three event days: "This year's analytica Vietnam has demonstrated impressively that the Vietnamese market for analytical techniques, biotechnology and lab technology is growing. The demand for laboratory equipment is increasing, and the numerous products exported from the country are analysed in accordance with international testing standards. Our trade fair concept starts exactly at this point and combines the latest products and solutions as well as links national and international manufacturers with extensive knowledge transfer in the supporting program".
Gabriele Kraus, Division Manager at the trade fair organiser IMAG, also emphasised the advantage of the location in this context: "Vietnam has one of the fastest growing economies in Asia. Its proximity to China and stable political situation have a positive influence. These factors have favoured the growth of analytica Vietnam. Exhibitor growth of 27% shows that companies share this assessment."
Tok Wee Keong, COO of Technospex confirmed: "This is the first time we are exhibiting in Vietnam and it was truly an eye-opener for us. The lab visits gave us the valuable opportunity to see and experience the Labs in Vietnam first hand and we now understand their equipment requirements which is very important information for making sales."
Exhibitors were also impressed by the high quality of the visitors. Pham Thi Tuyet, PR Manager at SISC Vietnam, summed up: "We´re definitely happy with the results of analytica Vietnam 2017. Since the first day we have connected with many big potential end-users. We will participate again."
During the analytica Vietnam conference, international experts from science and research provided insights into the latest developments and practice-oriented solutions in the areas of foodstuff analytics and safety, pharmaceutical and medical diagnostics, environmental analysis and quality optimisation as well as chromatography and mass spectrometry.
There were lively exchange between exhibitors and visitors not only at the trade fair stands; the buyer-seller meetings also provided an attractive context for business talks with precisely the right contacts. Approximately 160 people attended the organised discussions.
The next analytica Vietnam will take place in the spring of 2019.
