Asia Fruit Logistica visitors can look forward to taking in an exciting array of leading products and services from across the globe, and throughout the supply chain.
More than 800 companies from 43 different countries exhibited at last year’s event, an increase of over 150 exhibitors compared with the 2016 edition. New countries are joining the show in 2018, with Oman and Azerbaijan making their debut appearance.
China’s two leading online food retail platforms – e-commerce giant JD.com and Alibaba – invested fresh food e-tailer Yiguo – will both be exhibiting for the first time at Asia Fruit Logistica 2018.
Several leading players are also ramping up their presence at the show, with regional produce powerhouse Dole Asia and Beijing-based fresh produce e-tailer MissFresh both doubling the size of their stands.
Visitors to Asia Fruit Logistica will also find a wealth of information and insights through a busy programme of events at the trade show.
It all gets under way with Asiafruit Congress, Asia’s premier fresh produce conference event on 4 September. Taking place the day before Asia Fruit Logistica at the same venue, Asiafruit Congress is the perfect primer to the trade show, and the conference is celebrating its 20thanniversary this year.
On the show-floor at Asia Fruit Logistica, visitors can take part in a range of hall forums. Asiafruit Business Forum offers practical ideas and solutions for better fresh produce marketing and business management. Cool Logistics Asia provides a programme of workshops on cold chain management while Smart Horticulture Asia is a forum on disruptive technology and digitalisation of the supply chain.
New for 2018 is the Media Studio Asia Fruit Logistica where visitors will also be able to take in quick-fire live interviews with key industry figures on a range of exciting developments and innovations.
Asia Fruit Logistica confirmed its position as Asia’s premier continental trade show for the fresh fruit and vegetable business in 2017, attracting more than 13,000 high-quality visitors from 76 different countries. Well over three quarters of those visitors came from Asia, representing 20 different markets across the Asia-Pacific region.
