The online ticket shop for Asia Fruit Logistica, Asia’s leading trade show for the fresh fruit and vegetable business, is now open, according to the show’s organisers.
Online bookings to attend this year’s Asia Fruit Logistica, which takes place on 4-6 September 2013 at AsiaWorld-Expo Center in Hong Kong, can be made at www.asiafruitlogistica.com/tickets.
Visitors can book at the online ticket shop and save 35 per cent on tickets purchased on the door.
A record 5,722 buyers and trade visitors from 64 nations attended Asia Fruit Logistica 2012.
Official visitor survey results revealed that 84 per cent of those visitors held leading management positions in their companies, while 86 per cent were closely involved in the purchasing and procurement decisions.
This year, there will be more time for visitors to do business, with Asia Fruit Logistica extending its opening hours to 10:00hrs-17:00hrs daily.
Visitors to the 2012 event were able to see a record 341 exhibitors from 30 different countries, and the results cemented Asia Fruit Logistica’s status as the region’s fresh fruit and vegetable business hub.
“Asia Fruit Logistica is now a fixture on the calendar for the global fresh fruit and vegetable business, and the level of sophistication in terms of exhibitors has improved dramatically,” said Antony Greenstein, managing director of Metspan (Capespan Asia). “The people who attend are the ones doing the business.”
This year, visitors will also be able to take part in a new series of seminars that will take place throughout Asia Fruit Logistica. The Business Forum, located in the exhibition halls, offers a broad programme of informal workshops that aims to add even more value for visitors.
Asiafruit Congress, the premier conference event for the region’s fresh fruit and vegetable business, takes place on 3 September this year, the day before Asia Fruit Logistica opens its doors, with a new compact, high-impact format.
Asiafruit is the official media partner of Asia Fruit Logistica.
