Sial is not only the largest food and beverage fair in the world, it’s also the sector’s most important fair for new markets and target groups. Sial 2018 was attended by 7,200 plus companies from over 100 countries, which occupied a gross exhibition space of 27 hectares. Over 160,000 trade visitors from 119 countries attended Sial 2018. Sial’s trade fair concept is unique, bringing supply and demand together in 21 specialised trade shows under one roof and Sial’s trend topics focus on all of the key trends of the future, including a large emphasis on innovation. Exhibitors are encouraged to promote new food and beverage products. More than 75% identified items as “nouveau produit” and entered them in the exposition’s SIAL Innovation Awards. This year, 2,355 products were entered into the competition, with 801 products selected as finalists. Awards and recognitions are distributed in various categories with gold, silver and bronze awards given to the overall innovation winners at a special ceremony held Oct. 22.

UK trade associations and other industry bodies often offer support to UK businesses exhibiting in overseas trade shows, designed to get the highest return on your investment. For Sial you may wish to consult with Food and Drink Exporters Association or Food and Drink Federation to discuss your participation, the services that they offer and the exhibition option that is most suitable.
