Vietnam’s leading laboratory technology event celebrates its 10th year

Apr 30 2018

analytica Vietnam, a spin-off of the analytica in Munich, celebrates its tenth anniversary: From April 03 to 05, 2019, the sixth episode of Vietnam’s leading trade fair for analysis, laboratory technology and biotechnology will be held at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center (SECC) in Ho Chi Minh City. Since its launch in 2009, analytica Vietnam has become the industry's most important trade fair in the growth market of Vietnam. In 2019, once more an extensive conference and supporting program with a Buyer–Seller Forum will accompany the exhibition. Exhibitors registration is now open for analytica Vietnam.

The attractiveness of the Vietnamese market for analysis, biotechnology and laboratory technology is evidenced by the high demand at analytica Vietnam: In 2017, the trade fair recorded 121 international exhibitors and more than 3,500 specialist visitors from 28 countries. With 157 participants, the then first-ever Buyer–Seller Forum, which will be held again in 2019, was very well received. Here, the trade fair organiser arranges 20-minute meetings between exhibitors and visitors in order to quickly establish suitable business contacts. These meetings are free of charge and take place in a separate area at the trade fair.

The comprehensive program that will accompany the trade fair in 2019 is all about knowledge transfer. At the analytica Vietnam conference, national and international experts will provide insights into the latest developments in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals and food and environmental analysis. Workshops, experimental lectures on laboratory safety and an exhibitor forum will complete the supporting program. One day before the opening of the trade fair, exhibitors will have the opportunity to visit selected laboratories in the city during a lab tour and thus gain insight into the equipment situation of local research facilities.

With a growth rate of its national economy of just under seven percent last year, Vietnam is one of Asia's most dynamic countries. For the food industry, experts expect an annual growth rate of almost eleven percent, while the pharmaceutical industry increased by ten percent in 2017. In addition, the Vietnamese government is planning long-term investments in order to further boost the upswing in the chemical and biotechnology sectors. Especially the segments of analysis, laboratory technology and biotechnology offer tremendous market potential. Many of Vietnam's export products are by now subject to international testing standards, for example from the food, textile and clothing industries, which are among the country's largest export industries. For the laboratory and analysis equipment required here for appropriate quality assurance and optimisation, the country mostly relies on imports. At analytica Vietnam, this demand meets an international supply.

"We are very happy that we will be able to celebrate analytica Vietnam's tenth anniversary in the coming year", says Gabriele Kraus, Executive Director of the trade-fair organiser IMAG. "Every year, the trade fair attracts high-profile exhibitors from all over the world and receives several thousand trade visitors, and it has an excellent reputation in the industry." Susanne Grödl, Exhibition Director at the analytica-network, adds: "In Vietnam, not only the latest technologies and solutions are in demand, but exchange of expert knowledge is as well. Therefore, in 2019, once more we attach great importance to promoting this transfer of international expertise through lectures, workshops and forums."
