The livestock market in the Philippines is showing positive growth. ILDEX Philippines showed the excellence of the show with the exciting announcement of its upcoming 2024 edition!
Manila, Philippines – 13 July 2023, In response to the positive feedback received from the 2023 edition, VNU Asia Pacific, the organizers of ILDEX Philippines, together with Deltaman, the organizer of the Philippine Poultry Show, have made the final decision for the upcoming edition. We are pleased to announce that ILDEX Philippines 2024 will take place from August 28 to 30, 2024, at the SMX Convention Center, Manila. The organizers aim to build upon the success of this year’s event, offering an even larger exhibition space and a more diverse range of conference sessions.
This year, the Philippine Poultry Show & ILDEX Philippine celebrate the success of the first edition with over 7,100 industry professionals from more than 40 countries. ILDEX Philippines 2023 saw an incredible turnout, highlighting the event’s significance for the region’s livestock and poultry sector. We were honored to host over 180 global brands from over 20 countries, showcasing the latest advancements, cutting-edge technologies, and innovative products in the industry. The trade visitors from the Asian region accounted for more than 84% of the attendees with a visitor satisfaction rate of 9.23 out of 10 which demonstrates that this trade fair has become a top quality event for the Philippines market.
In 2024, the livestock and poultry sector will also continue the adoption of technology and automation to improve productivity and efficiency. This includes the use of data-driven management systems, devices for monitoring animal health and animal production, and automated feeding and waste management systems.
To highlight the trend, the exhibition will expand the business profiles from farm to food, and the showcase will cover all visitor’s interests including: animal health, pharmaceutical products, ingredients, farm equipment, feed additives, breeding & hatching, packaging and labeling, and many more. At the next edition, we also plan to include a Meat Pro Pavilion to represent the food processing part and also other agri-technology highlights to cover the full supply chain from feed to food for the Asia region.
According to USDA’s International Long-Term Projections to 2028, the region will become the world’s fastest-growing importer of soybean meal—a key ingredient in animal feed—over the next decade and will overtake the EU as the largest soybean meal importer by 2022. As the region’s incomes rise, meat consumption is also likely to increase. Every Southeast Asian country has different meat preferences, as reflected by their levels of consumption and production. Southeast Asia’s poultry production expanded by 56 percent in the last decade, growing from 5.9 MMT to 9.2 MMT in 2018, and is expected to reach 12.3 MMT by 2028.
