Postponement of Aquaculture Philippines 2019 to May 2020
Wednesday, June 26, 2019
As a result of the growing concerns of African Swine Fever (ASF) and at the request of the Department of Agriculture and the local industry stakeholders, UBM Exhibitions Philippines has decided to postpone the Livestock & Aquaculture Philippines 2019 show to May 28 - 30, 2020.
The Department of Agriculture has implemented tightened quarantine controls as one of its strategies since the outbreak started last year. The Department and the local swine industry have raised the possibility of ASF entering the country through exhibitions such as Livestock Philippines, as some of the foreign exhibitors and/or participants may come from ASF infected countries.
Although swine are only one component of Livestock Philippines, the organizers, based on expert advice, put in place extensive biosecurity measures including the cooperation of the attendees to follow strict quarantine measures. However, these measures were not seen as sufficient and the industry associations have requested to postpone the event to a later date.
Livestock Philippines is the leading technology and equipment exhibition in the Philippine since 2011. The event showcases the best and finest in livestock equipment, feeds, meat and aquaculture industries and it will be back on May 28-30, 2020.
