“In addition to the special interest from countries in Southeast Asia, this year's exhibition also attracts many other countries from around the world. This diversity meets our wishes and matches the interests of enterprises from Vietnam, Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and some other markets,” the event organizing committee said in a statement.
The exhibition will also connect participants with the Export Forum, a focal point of the event where leading experts will speak and hold discussions on various topics at different seminars.
At the forum, Vietnamese businesses can meet and hold direct exchanges with 40 buyers of vegetables, flowers, fruits and other items from China, Singapore, Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand. This is an opportunity for firms to promote their brands and business to boost exports of vegetables, flowers and fruits, expanding their markets.
The business connectivity program (B2B Business Matchmaking) is also a special activity to be emphasized at the exhibition. Organizers have combined many traditional and modern facilities, information networks and communication tools to help buyers and sellers search, choose the right people, connect and establish relationships right at the exhibition.
The organizers have also invested in a program to attract potential international buyers (International VIP Buyers) to the exhibition. This program gives Vietnamese businesses the opportunity to meet in potential buyers in person and establish business relations with many importing markets for vegetables, flowers and fruits, including China, Singapore and many others.
Besides, Retail Tour, a practical sightseeing program, gives foreign enterprises the opportunity to understand the ability and operational capacity of production units and suppliers of vegetables, flowers and fruits in Vietnam.
A highlight of the event is that all participants can update themselves on market developments and technological advances in horticulture through its many events including seminars on practical, relevant topics.
