FRANCE, Paris. It is now more than half a century since SIAL (Salon International de l’Alimentation - International Food Exhibition) first espoused the ambition to become the world's most important network for food professionals.
A daring wager, but one which has paid off, as evinced by the success foretold of the upcoming edition of Sial Paris, to take place from 21 to 25 October 2018 at Paris Nord Villepinte. This key biennial event has become the go-to, inspirational meeting place for the entire food processing industry, because it is here that the food of today goes on show and the food of tomorrow is conceived.
A highlight of the year bringing together the world's food industry in the French capital for sharing the solutions of today and tomorrow and, in this way, together addressing the food challenges of the next 30 years.
"All eyes in the food industry will be turned toward Paris in October 2018," predicts Nicolas Trentesaux, Director of the Sial network. "Let us not forget," he continues, "that the food industry is one of the most dynamic industries in the majority of the G20 countries. Coming to the fair is about discovering opportunities for growth, and new trends; it is about benefiting from an excellent springboard to attain the ambitious objectives aspired to by the actors in the food industry.“
He added.“Sial Paris is a unique, inspirational platform for testing new markets, launching new products and meeting the main professionals in the sector to discuss the challenges that lie ahead. It is also a veritable laboratory, with R&D departments from around the world finalising their innovations to test them in the aisles of the exhibition. More than 2500 innovations will be unveiled to the world for the very first time as part of Sial Innovation, serving up yet more inspiration to the food processing industry."
During the five days, which promise to be more inspirational than ever, the exhibitors will have the opportunity to present their products to more than 160,000 professional visitors from all around the world. Depending on their preferences, their expectations and their needs, these visitors will be able to explore the exhibition by reference to sector or to the world's regions. There is a breadth of offering that only this fair is able to propose to its visiting public, whatever their background.
