The event offers a range of visitor attractions, including an industry-leading education programme.
Almost 20,000 visitors attended Vitafoods Europe 2017. Vitafoods Europe has enjoyed another record-breaking year, with visitor and exhibitor numbers both significantly up on 2016. Almost 20,000 (19,951) visitors attended the global nutraceutical event in Geneva between 9 and 11 May –13% more than last year. Furthermore, a record 1,034 companies exhibited – up 15% on 2016. This was the most international Vitafoods Europe ever, with exhibitors from 56 different countries, and visitors from 108.
This year, old favourites such as the Vitafoods Tasting Centre and the Omega-3 Resource Centre were joined by a number of new features. These included the Vitafoods Innovation Centre in association with analyze & realize, which offered free consultations on areas such as regulation and marketing access. Visitors could also talk to experts in the new Advice Centre. Also making a debut was the Probiotics Resource Centre – a new dedicated knowledge hub. Organized in association with the International Probiotics Association, it explored the latest breakthroughs in probiotic technology and market trends.
With the event proving so successful for all groups – visitors, exhibitors and education programme delegates – the organizers are now looking ahead to next year. Vitafoods Europe 2018 will take place at Palexpo between 15 and 17 May 2018.
