JAKARTA, Indonesia, August 9, 2010 - Fi Asia, who will debut in Jakarta, Indonesia this September, has been
completely sold out. To monitor the streaming demand, organizers have opened
a waiting-list for exhibiting at the show. More than 200 companies have
already secured their platform to introduce their latest developments to the

international speakers. The body representing food processing - GAPMI - will
hold a members meeting on-site. Additionally, there will be free-of-charge
seminars held by key exhibitors, who will present new products and

Fi Asia 2010 will run from 29 September - 1 October 2010 at Jakarta
International Expo centre, Jakarta, Indonesia.
