The 2nd International Exhibition and Conference for Horticultural and Floricultural Production and Processing Technology (HortEx Vietnam) will take place at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City from March 13 to 15, 2019.

Topics demonstrated via presentations include “Vietnam - Overview of the Horticultural and Floricultural Industry” by the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD); “Business Opportunities between Thai and Vietnamese Enterprises” by the Vietnam Fruit and Vegetable Association (Vinafruit); and “Experience Sharing on Doing Horticultural and Floricultural Business in Vietnam” by Thai companies.

HortEx Vietnam is the only international exhibition and conference for horticultural and floricultural production and processing technology in Vietnam. It was held for the first time in this year by the Minh Vi Exhibition and Advertisement Services Co. from Vietnam, with the Netherlands’ Nova Exhibitions BV as co-organizer.

The first edition attracted 110 participants from 20 countries and welcomed 4,530 trade visitors. Besides Vietnamese visitors the exhibition also welcomed a large number of visitors from overseas, such as Cambodia, Thailand, the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Australia, China, the US, and India.

HortEx Vietnam 2018 received a great reception from exhibitors, with 92 per cent saying it met their expectations. Based on positive feedback and growing interest in the Vietnamese market, the decision was made to increase the exhibition space by two-fold for this next edition in order to meet the increasing demand from companies worldwide.

HortEx Vietnam aims to support the rapid growth of the Vietnam’s horticulture and floriculture industry. According to figures from MARD, horticulture and floriculture production and processing is one of the most promising segments in the country.

Vietnam earned over $2.3 billion from exporting fruit and vegetables in the first seven of 2018, a year-on-year rise of 12.6 per cent. Horticulture and floriculture are set for steady growth and to become a leading export industry in Vietnam.

HortEx Vietnam has received strong endorsement from MARD, the Lam Dong Tourism, Trade and Investment Promotion Center (TIPC), Vinafruit, the Dalat Flower Association, and the Embassy of the Netherlands in Vietnam. The event is anticipated to connect worldwide providers with local businesses and experts from related industries in Vietnam.
