The key factors for Vietstock's continued success is the quality of visitor. You can talk to the people that really matter, make contact with new clients and cement the loyalty of your existing customers in a relaxed, but professional business environment. It's a two-way communication with right decision-makers, and that's why it's so effective."

In the last edition of 2016, there were 77.6 percent of 10,518 visitors having purchasing authority and are potential customers for exhibiting companies.
The current Vietnam poultry and pig industries are exposed to a severe situation due to small-scale production, high feed cost and pork price decrease. Hence, the whole industry is putting effort into streamlining production and distribution, establishing effective supply systems as well as adding higher value for livestock and meat products for new exporting markets. These initiatives have led to positive result for pig production recently with pork prices rebounded from VND 20,000kg in December 2017 to around VND 48,000kg in August 2018.
