The 8th Asia Agri-Tech Expo & Forum Grandly Held In Tainan on June 19th

The 8th "Asia Agri-tech Expo and Forum" (AAT), "Taiwan Livestock", and "Taiwan Aquaculture" will be grandly opened at the Tainan International Convention Center (ICC Tainan) from June 19th to 21st. The opening ceremony will be jointly kicked off by the Deputy Minister of Ministry of Agriculture Mr. Hu Zhong-yi, Tainan City Mayor Mr. Huang Wei-che, and Informa Markets Senior Vice President Mr. Chris Eve.

The AAT, organized by the world's largest exhibition organizer Informa Markets and co-organized by the highest guiding agency for agriculture in Taiwan - the Ministry of Agriculture, has entered its 8th edition since its launch in 2017. In 2024, the exhibition is moving from Taipei to Tainan for the first time, becoming Tainan's first international professional exhibition in agriculture, aquaculture, and livestock.

Tainan is located at the center of the important agricultural, aquaculture and livestock production regions in central and southern Taiwan. Over 80% of the livestock producers are situated in central and southern Taiwan, and the total agricultural output value accounts for around 2/3 of the national total. By moving the exhibition to Tainan, it brings the exhibitors closer to the producers in the regions, making it more convenient for the central and southern professional buyers to visit and make procurements. In fact, the data shows that compared to the Taipei edition, 35% of the exhibitors this year in Tainan are new, and the registration of visitors from the regions has increased by 20%.

This year, the exhibition has 200 companies from 13 countries, exhibiting a total of over 400 booths. The new exhibitors are mostly from the agricultural and aquaculture sectors, showcasing many new products and equipment, such as lobster artificial feed, fish and shrimp sex control technology, smart drones for aquaculture, electric agriculture machinery, pineapple and banana harvesting fiber extract machines, cattle facial recognition and management systems, and automatic milking robots.

The major overseas buyers come from Southeast Asia, including Vietnam, the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Cambodia. The Malaysian buyers include The Federation of Malaysia Fruit Farmers Association, The Federation of Batu Pahat Vegetable Growers, the Aquaculture Development Association, and the Flower Association. In addition, a delegation of provincial governors from the Philippines also came to visit.

To cater to the needs of exhibitors, the organizer has specially arranged for distributor and agency matchmaking this year, welcoming interested companies to explore new business opportunities. There will also be 52 conference sessions during the exhibition, inviting industry experts to share the latest industry trends.

This year also marks the 400th anniversary of the founding of the Tainan ancient city, with various celebration activities held throughout the year. Industry professionals of the exhibition are welcome to join in the festivities.
