PIA Vietnam to return in March 2011 with broader focus

The next edition of PIA Vietnam, a premier trade event focused on process engineering and instrumentation as well as laboratory and scientific equipment, will be taking place at Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC), Ho Chi Minh City, from 23 to 25 March 2011. Mutually organized by BES Ltd., Allworld Exhibition in corporate with VCCI Exhibition, PIA Vietnam 2011 comprises three prominent parts including:

Pharmatech Vietnam 2011: The International Pharmaceutical & Cosmetic
Processing, Filling, Packaging & Ingredients Exhibition

Instrument Vietnam 2011: The 3rd International Instrumentation,
Measurement & Testing Exhibition

Analysis & Lab Vietnam 2011: The 3rd International Analysis & Laboratory
Technology Exhibition

The event aims to supply a platform for local and overseas companies including manufacturers, suppliers and service providers involved in production of technologies and equipments for related sectors to showcase their newest range of products and services.

PIA Vietnam will be a superb opportunity to make contacts with the influential decision makers and potential buyers, and to enhance the overall business networking environment. Moreover, it is an ideal event for visitors to gain up‐to‐date information about alternative goods and solutions that are useful in improving efficiency, increasing productivity and reducing operational costs.

Targeted visitors are representatives from agro‐industries; building and construction; chemicals; cosmetics, health and beauty; food and drink; medical, pharmaceutical and biotech; rubber and plastics; textiles; production and distribution, laboratories as well as education and government among others.

Categories of exhibiting products and services range from analysers and testers, automation systems and chemical handling/dispensing, programmable logic controllers, to chemicals and reagents, monitoring system and Wireless/RFID. For a complete exhibitor profile, visit www.piavietnam.com

“The combination of three dedicated shows reflects growing demand and opportunities in Vietnam. With dramatic growth in its process industry driven by foreign direct Investments, the country has shortly established itself as a global supplier of consumer and industrial goods,” said Dr Nguyen Huu Thien, President, VINALAB.

Vietnam’s pharmaceutical market alone will continue to see high annual growth of 25 percent/year, reaching some $2 billion in 2012, according to Vietnam Pharmaceutical Management Department. This will be the compelling factors attracting foreign investors to pour capital into this market.

PIA Vietnam 2011 is built on huge success of the last edition, which was participated by 31 local companies and 101 international exhibitors, and attracted more than 3,600 trade professionals.

“It will once again enable Vietnam’s process engineering, manufacturing, R&D, scientific and educational communities to make new contact with more than 100 leading suppliers from Asia, Europe, USA and others. For companies and organisations seeking ways to upgrade to higher international standards in response to the rising export trend, it will be a unique
opportunity to explore the most compatible, cost‐effective technologies and solutions,” said David Aitken, Managing Director, BES Ltd.

Again, PIA Vietnam 2011 will be co‐located with ProPak Vietnam 2011 to ensure a comprehensive line‐up of products, services and solutions for Vietnam’s fast growing food and beverage processing, filling, handling and packaging industries.
