ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is moving to Bangkok for its 2022 edition from its traditional location in Hong Kong and takes place on 2-4 November 2022 at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC).
The world-class exhibition centre in Bangkok hosted the first-ever edition of ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA back in 2007. And the state-of-the-art facility has recently undergone a multimillion-dollar upgrade, adding five times more space as well as cutting-edge technology and services. That makes QSNCC the ideal venue as Asia’s number one international trade show for fresh fruits and vegetables celebrates its 15th anniversary in 2022.
“Asia’s fresh fruit and vegetable trade is desperate to meet in person again, and hosting ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA in Bangkok this year means we can put on a physical trade show,” said David Axiotis, executive director of ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA.
“The global fresh produce business can meet again face-to-face in Asia at ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA in November 2022. This is a unique opportunity to reconnect, to re-engage with the market, and to develop new business with new top-level contacts.
“ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2022 is as always held alongside ASIAFRUIT CONGRESS, which is the place to get the best information on every aspect of the fresh produce business across Asia,” Axiotis added.
Thailand resumed its Test and Go programme for fully vaccinated travellers on 1 February 2022. It means international visitors can attend ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA easily and conveniently.
Under the current Test and Go scheme, fully vaccinated travellers can travel by air from any country in the world and are exempt from quarantine: they must take a Covid-19 test on arrival in a government-approved (SHA+) hotel on Day 1 [or on their date of arrival]. Travellers are free to go if they receive a negative result and take an ATK self-test on Day 5 and report the test result as instructed by the Ministry of Public Health.
Chiruit Isarangkun Na Ayuthaya, president of the Thailand Convention and Exhibition Bureau (TCEB), said his organisation was looking forward to welcoming Asia’s premier fresh fruit and vegetable trade show to Bangkok.
“TCEB has a policy to support MICE [business events] and to propel the growth of strategic industries such as food and agriculture and logistics, so ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA is a perfect match with our policy.
“As a government agency, TCEB is ready to partner in making trade shows in Thailand a platform for successful connection between local and overseas businesses.
“ASIA FRUIT LOGISTICA 2022 can count on the city’s first-class services and support, and we’re confident it will be a highly productive and enjoyable event for participants.”
Thailand is also a key hub for South-East Asia’s fast-growing fresh fruit and vegetable business and presents fresh opportunities for visitors and exhibitors, Axiotis noted.
“It is a big job to bring together 800 exhibitors and 12,000 visitors from all over the world as we did for our last trade show in 2019. That’s why it’s especially important that we hit the ground running,” he said.
Global Produce Events GmbH is well set up to do that: we have our teams in Shanghai and Bangkok, our global network of sales agents covering more than 120 countries and regions across the world.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming our exhibitors and visitors to Bangkok and to putting on a really great show for the global fresh fruit and vegetable business.”
