SIAL Paris gets postponed to 2022
SIAL Paris has no chance to be held this, announced the organizers, who are quoting "the latest developments in the state of affairs worldwide and the uncertainties arising from them" as the main concern for exhibitors and visitors. "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. SIAL Paris is therefore postponed to 2022, when it will take place from 15 to 19 October.
In keeping with our 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, we decipher the market and the trends emerging in the world food sector, and we have tirelessly reinvented ourselves over more than 50 years as the imperative go-to figure in the food industry. We 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," stated Nicolas Trentesaux, CEO, SIAL Global Network in a press release.
These highlights will include 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 foodservice behaviour. According to Mr. Trentesaux, in the absence of the main event in paris, the organizers will be focused on expanding the "global network to offer regional growth platforms with major annual gatherings in China, Canada, Indonesia, India and the United Arab Emirates."
