The 10th Vietnam Cashew Association (VINACAS) Golden Cashew Rendezvous (GCR-2018), a Vietnamese national trade promotion program, will be held from October 5 to 7 in Ha Long Bay. Ha Long Bay is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an iconic tourism destination of Vietnam.
The program is organized by the Vietnam Cashew Association (VINACAS) and is supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development of Vietnam.
As the world’s cashew hub, the GCR-2018 is the place where more than 500 esteemed cashew stakeholders can find real cashew partners and deals and acquire the most reliable cashew information and forecasts from qualified panelists from all over the world.
VINACAS hopes that all cashew kernel buyers, raw cashew nut sellers, and other cashew stakeholders will have a wonderful time and enjoy Vietnam’s unique atmosphere, splendid scenery and traditional cuisine.
One day prior to the event, a wonderful tour called “Cashew Roadshow” will be held from Hanoi to Ha Long Bay. Along the Cashew Roadshow, attendees will have the opportunity to visit the sites and culture of Vietnam’s capital, Hanoi. These places include Hanoi Old Town, Hanoi Water Puppet Show, and Bat Trang Pottery Village, which are on the list of top ten destinations by TripAdvisor. Upon arrival at Ha Long Bay, the attendees can enjoy the marvelous “Ha Long Bay Sea-Caravan Tour.”
In addition to the pre-tour, the organizers will bring the participants on a memorable trekking post-tour from Ha Long Bay to Sapa - a mountainous region in the north of Vietnam where there are a few nearby cashew processing units.
Sapa, one of the most attractive tourism destinations in the country, is a precious gift that Mother Nature has given Vietnam. Located here is Fansipan or "The Roof of Indochina," where one can view many picturesque sights.
