FOOD EXPO, the largest Food & Beverage trade show in Southeast Europe and one of the most significant of its kind internationally, is staging a strong comeback between 12-14 March 2022, in a covid free environment at the Metropolitan Expo.
Recent events confirm that the market still needs “bricks and mortar” exhibitions since they are the most important forums for the development of trade contacts and cannot be substituted by any other form of actions and activities.
FOOD EXPO, the largest Food & Beverage trade show in Southeast Europe and one of the most significant of its kind internationally, is staging a strong comeback between 12-14 March 2022, in a covid free environment at the Metropolitan Expo exhibition center! Featuring 1,350 exhibitors from Greece and the rest of the world and 3,500 key food traders, FOOD EXPO 2022 is consolidating its leading position in the wider region of Southeast Europe, while further strengthening its international reach.
900 Hosted Buyers, 3,500 international trade visitors
The trade show’s organizers, through a series of promotional activities, aim to attract 3,500 international buyers from target markets for the Greek Food & Beverages; of these, the 900 most important will join the exhibition’s Hosted Buyer Program, whose total cost will exceed €600,000. The hosted buyers will hold over 17,500 B2B meetings with FOOD EXPO 2022 exhibitors.
The show’s digital platform
The resounding success of FOOD EXPO Digital 2021 proved that a well-organised online platform can act as an additional service to the physical trade show. The digital platform of FOOD EXPO 2022 will be activated 10 days after the end of the bricks and mortar exhibition and will allow visitors –mainly international buyers– who are unable to attend the event, to get in touch with the exhibitors.
FOOD EXPO inaugurates two new sectors
Organic food is one of the fastest growing sectors internationally. Responding to market trends, FOOD EXPO is launching a new, special section with organic products. The increased demand for Greek fresh fruit and vegetables from Greek and international buyers, has led to the creation of a new sector for these products.
Oenotelia stages grand comeback in 2022
FOOD EXPO’s comeback would not be possible without Oenotelia, which thanks to its strictly professional nature, its high level of quality and the participation of the most significant businesses that produce the finest Greek wines and spirits, will meet the expectations of the wine market.
