PARIS, June 28, 2018 /CNW Telbec/ - Over fifty years ago, the Salon International de l'Alimentation (SIAL) set out to become the world's premier food exhibition network. In October 2018, SIAL Paris will demonstrate once again how this biennial fair has indeed developed into the food industry's front-line event.
Over 104 countries and 160,000 professionals from around the world are expected to attend the five-day show. Arranged into food sectors and geographical regions, SIAL's one-of-a-kind layout lets visitors customize their experience and explore the exhibition according to their own particular needs - something that no other fair can offer to such a wide-ranging public.
Must-attend: The organic, diet and start-up zones
Following a successful initiative launched in 2016, SIAL Paris continues to promote emerging food sectors by offering designated display areas. This year, the organic and diet zone will be featured alongside the Gourmet sector.
In addition, Beverages and Fresh products will be a must-visit section as will a "Tech" zone, allowing SMEs and microenterprises to present their latest technologies and equipment products. And because SIAL Paris is an ideal showcase for the French food industry, there will once again be a designated "Made in France" area, which will host a start-up French Village for the first time.
Going beyond its status as a professional networking and trade event, SIAL Paris continues to be the food sector's main information hub, offering profound insight into the mechanisms of a market worth 1.5 trillion dollars.
Paris 2018: The World Food Capital
Representatives of the entire global food industry will be in Paris from October 21st to 25th, eager to discover and share the solutions required to feed consumers and meet their expectations over the next 30 years.
"The food industry is one of the most dynamic industries in the majority of G20 countries", says SIAL Network Director Nicolas Trentesaux. "By discovering new trends and business opportunities, participants will find the tools they need to achieve their objectives. SIAL Paris is a unique platform for stakeholders to test new markets, launch new products and meet today's main players to discuss the challenges of the future. It also resembles a laboratory as global R&D departments frequently finalize their products in time to test them in SIAL Paris aisles. Over 2,500 new products will be presented at the SIAL Innovation feature next year, inspiring the food and beverage industry even more than ever before."
Companies looking to develop new markets, grow their exports, boost their turnover (over 6 months extra turnover declared by our 2016 clients) or diversify their offering should definitely get involved in SIAL Paris 2018.
