VIV MEA 2021 FULLY SPRANG BUSINESS INTO ACTION!
It has been 10 days since the 3rd edition of VIV MEA closed its doors in Abu Dhabi on November 25th. The organizer looks back at this edition with a heartfelt gratitude towards all the global and regional exhibitors who placed their trust in VIV to return to an in-person event after a long pause, and all the visitors and partners who made it onsite. It was an informative, exciting, busy and extremely productive show, with an outstanding quality of the profiles in attendance. A memorable edition, which the whole industry deserved so much.
The visitor numbers that made the show a true success
A total of 6,671 professional visitors smoothly made it to the 500 exhibitor booths at ADNEC halls 7 to 10 over the three days of the show. This 3rd edition of VIV MEA thus confirmed the success of 2018 in terms of visitor quantity, despite the limited traveling scenario. At the same time, visitor quality reached even greater results. In fact, 235 Industry Leaders participated in the event, while ¼ of the total visitors were C-levels.
Not only that, the high-quality of the visitors is reflected also by the rest of the profiles: 26% of the visitors were companies GMs or CEOs (one-fourth of the total as said); 15% were marketing and sales managers or representatives; veterinarians counted for a good 10%; distributors and dealers participated with a 8%; farm owners were 7% of the total visiting profiles; 5% were technical managers, engineers, or technician; and 4% were pure buyers, purchase or procurement managers.
Sherine Edward Bassili, Egypt local agent for Giordano Poultry Plast, said, “We are very happy with our participation in the show. Being the first show after COVID-19, it’s good to see the industry in person again. We had visitors from Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan and the Emirates, exactly our target regions, and we observed that the visitors now are even more serious to do business than in 2018.”
