Sebas van den Ende
Sebas van de Ende visited the booth of Milling and Grain magazine at the recent IDMA-Victam EMEA 2022 exposition in Istanbul, Turkey, to talk to Roger Gilbert about plans for this year's Victam Europe - which takes place in Utrecht, The Netherlands from May 31 - June 2, 2022 and to flag up its end-of-year event, Victam Asia, which takes place from September 7-9, 2022 in Bangkok, Thailand: and which has been postponed five times! Mr van den Ende says all exhibitors for the latter show have stayed loyal throughout the recurring restrictions enforced by the pandemic and thanks them for their commitment. It is the first time in Istanbul, Turkey that two milling shows organisers - one from the flour milling sector and one from the feed milling sector have come together to co-host a joint event. This may be a sign to a future where co-locating and co-hosting events by organisers becomes more acceptable to all parties including visitors. Victam Europe will be co-located with VIV Europe this year in The Netherlands.
