Avi Africa 2013 – Johannesburg


The annual premier poultry trade show for Southern Africa – AVI Africa was once again held from the 28th- 31st May in Johannesburg, South Africa in conjunction with the industry congress which attracted a record number of registrations.  This year’s event comes at a crucial time for the SA Poultry industry as the country is faced with a very unstable market due to certain production challenges. However the prospects for a substantial growth period are very evident and the development of the Rural Farmer is very much in focus as a means of empowerment.
Termotecnica Pericoli participated with the local distributor Dynamic Automation with a very high profile position and displaying their EOC 53” Cone fan as the centerpiece along with their EOS/EWS range of exhaust fans and the ACF 18 circulation fan.  Mr. Mauro Pericoli, Sales Director represented the company and was pleased with the progress that has been made over the past 2 years in the establishment of their brand in these markets. A number of high level discussions were held during this time to cement the company’s growing market position and to enhance future growth with a number of strategic alliances being forged.
The show was well attended by delegates from all the surrounding regional countries which adds a true international flavour to this event, supported by all major international equipment manufactures – many of which had representatives present in support of their local distribution.
