Following consultation with the key industry suppliers and the Thai Beer Industry Guild, the dates for the premiere staging of Bevtec Asia, Southeast Asia’s only dedicated drink manufacturing exhibition, have been changed from early 2014 to May 6 – 8, 2015. The Bevtec Asia committee decided not hold the exhibition in 2014, when two ASEAN industry conferences in the same three months period are already scheduled, especially with so many buyers focused on the AEC 2015 free-trade market changes and its opportunities. The new dates also allow the trade fair to expand its exhibit space to over 10,000 square meters at the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC) in Thailand.

Jointly organized The Messe Düsseldorf Asia and Asian Exhibition Services, Bevtec Asia 2015 will be the first international trade exhibition and conference for Asia’s rapidly growing brewing and beverage manufacturing industries.

Gernot Ringling, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf Asia, stated: “In collaboration with our key supporters and participants of the exhibition we are pleased to announce that the new 2015 dates for Bevtec Asia will ensure the maximum attendance and industry support for the event. Thailand in 2015 will be the host of the region’s only dedicated drink manufacturing exhibition and we will work closely with industry to develop and capture the business opportunities and production capabilities in the markets of Southeast Asia and its neighboring markets”.

Drink manufacturers in Southeast Asia are experiencing some of the fastest production increases in the world with an average of 18% investment growth in production technology throughout the ASEAN member countries. Commenting on the market opportunities, David Aitken, Managing Director of AES Ltd., explained: “The 700 million free trade market of ASEAN, opening up in 2015, will provide a gateway for Bevtec Asia exhibitors to expand into the growth markets of Vietnam, Indonesia, the Philippines, Malaysia and the emerging neighboring markets of Cambodia and Myanmar”. Bevtec Asia will attract representatives of the regional breweries, distilleries and wineries as well as manufacturers of soft-drinks, fruit juices, mineral water, dairy and liquid food.
