As part of the IEC‘s commitment to supporting the development of the egg industry in Asia, the first IEC Asia Leadership Forum was held in Bangkok on 9th and 10th March 2015. 

The forum brought together the principal leaders of the egg industry in Asia at a discussion forum covering topics most pertinent to the Asian industry and with the aim to share information, help solve problems and to provide delegates with the confidence and contacts to help grow their businesses. In addition to this, existing leaders in the IEC wished to learn about the most pressing issues in the Asian egg industry today, so that the IEC can properly represent these countries to international and inter-governmental bodies, and adapt the IEC work programme to suit the needs of the Asian countries.

Ovotherm was represented by its CEO Franz Hofer and Senior Partner Willi Kallhammer who were able to meet and greet many of their Asian clients at this exciting international egg event.

By attending the forum all Asian delegates became founding members of IEC Asia and will help to shape the future of IEC Asia and the format of Future Leadership Forums.
