About 500 global exhibitors are ready to showcase the latest products.

A week of appointments: new and continued co-locations

The initiative provides extra networking and business opportunities to all stakeholders. GFIA, already co-located with VIV MEA in the past, will come back as well at ADNEC this November. 

Abu Dhabi opened its doors for safe travel
VIV MEA participants can benefit from eased travel restrictions in Abu Dhabi. All the vaccinated travelers can visit the city and attend VIV MEA following all the protocols diligently. 

A clear track-record: a quick review of the previous editions
Looking back at the first edition, VIV MEA 2016 exceeded expectations and the show has been growing ever since. While it occupied three ADNEC halls in 2016, VIV MEA had spread into a fourth hall for the first time in 2018 to meet the higher demand for stand space. Indeed, the 3-day event had witnessed a total of 6,660 visits that represented a 6.7% increase compared with the first edition. A post-show survey found a satisfaction score of 7.3 out of 10 from exhibitors and an even higher rating of 8.3 from visitors. 
Drawing from this brilliant track record in the industry, VIV MEA is ready to welcome the Feed to Food, livestock and animal production industry players for yet another 3-day exhibition and conference program at a safely equipped ADNEC venue in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.
