Very possibly one of the biggest and best opportunities to research just what is available and coming up in global engineering and manufacturing is the 27th Vietnam International Trade Fair – VIETNAM EXPO 2017 in Hanoi next April.
Since Vietnam first started opening the door for the market economy in 1990, the event has continued to grow until last year there were 600 booths and 400 participants from 17 countries. International attendees reached 15,900.
So, the 11-hour flight from New Zealand to Vietnam is one worth taking, especially to make contact with companies otherwise further afield and harder to make contact with. Exhibitors are confirmed from Italy, Switzerland, Belarus, Greece, Turkey, Korea, China, Singapore, Cambodia, Laos, Algeria, Mongolia and Cuba.
Products included fire detection systems, cameras including helmet fixtures, drones, valves, fasteners, bolts and nuts, galvanising, wind turbines, plastics, packaging, storage, warehousing, logistic, container repair and maintenance services, adhesives and more.
And when you’ve done your work duties you can explore the myriad other products on display. Who knows what you might turn up.
