SIAL Paris postponed to 2022

SIAL Paris has been postponed to 15 to 19 October 2022.

The SIAL Paris team has remained fully mobilised to support businesses and provide them with this export springboard which is so keenly awaited to get the economy back on track. To enable such an international event to take place during this pandemic-hit period, the team put together a multitude of initiatives to safeguard individual and collective safety and maintain the quality of business exchanges and inspiration:

· Deployment of a ruthless public health protocol

· Reinforcement of personal and public transport services

· A hybrid offer to enable everyone to interact within the event

· Multiple studies and surveys (XTC, Kantar, Gira, Make.Org, etc.) to share with our community and support changes in the food industry.

Uncertainties arose

However, the latest developments in the state of affairs worldwide and the uncertainties arising from them have led to a substantial shift in opinion among our audiences that we have consulted in recent days, with a majority now wishing to see the event postponed.

To guarantee food professionals an experience that lives up to their expectations, SIAL Paris is therefore postponed to 2022, when it will take place from 15 to 19 October.

Transformation in the food industry

In keeping with SIAL’s mission, it remains our firm intention to keep in touch with our market and accompany the recovery and the transformation of food industry market players. At each edition, SIAL deciphers the market and the trends emerging in the world food sector, and tirelessly reinvented itself over more than 50 years as the imperative go-to figure in the food industry.

SIAL will consequently be offering a series of new events from October 2020 onwards dealing with major global issues, trends and innovation that are set to shape the food industry of the future.

These highlights will include major international and exclusive studies, conducted by the expert partners of SIAL: Kantar, ProtéinesXTC and Gira. Cutting edge analysis of leading trends and how they evolve over time, based on a three-pillar approach: Customer expectations, Product innovation and Out-of-home food service behaviour.

Furthermore, it will continue to expand our global network to offer regional growth platforms with major annual gatherings in China, Canada, Indonesia, India and the United Arab Emirates.

Relying on the loyalty and support of all our exhibitors and visitors, it will put the two years ahead to good use to prepare an even more inspiring and efficient SIAL 2022!
