Event

SIAL Paris

SIAL Paris : the world's leading food innovation exhibition, is set to mark its historic 60th anniversary from October 19 to 23, 2024, at the Parc des Expositions, Paris Nord Villepinte.

  

This milestone event offers a unique opportunity for industry professionals to reflect on six decades of groundbreaking innovations while eagerly anticipating the future of the food sector. 

 

With anticipation building, SIAL Paris 2024 is poised to host over 7,500 exhibitors representing more than 130 countries, with an impressive 75% of attendees expected to be international visitors. Renowned as the premier event for food industry players worldwide, the upcoming edition promises to be an unparalleled gathering of global innovators, thought leaders, and decision-makers. 

  

INSPIRED BY THE PAST TO SUSTAIN THE FUTURE  

Under the theme "Own the Change," SIAL 2024 aims to galvanize industry professionals to embrace ongoing transformations and tackle global food challenges. This collective movement will be fueled by showcasing exhibitors' CSR initiatives and highlighting expertise through initiatives like SIAL Insights, a biennial analysis of industry trends, SIAL Innovation, offering a glimpse into future developments, and SIAL Start-Up, which will feature twice as many promising start-ups in 2024, including early-stage concepts. 

 

NEW PLAN, NEW DYNAMICS 

Among the key highlights will be a new layout of the show as most of the visitors have expressed their wish to see the stands organized by product type in order to make their visit more efficient. The new floor plan will group exhibitors by theme. 


In terms of representation, France and Italy are vying for the top spot, with Italy currently leading in exhibition space, boasting over 16,000 square meters. Notably, China returns with vigor, showcasing more than 6,000 square meters of pavilions, while Ukraine and India demonstrate their growing influence on the global stage. 

 

Several countries from Africa will also be prominently featured, with dedicated pavilions in Hall 5a. Expectations are high for a greater representation compared to previous editions, with Côte d’Ivoire and Senegal already confirming their participation, underscoring the event's commitment to inclusivity and diversity within the industry. 

 

With an estimated attendance of 285,000 professionals, including 8,000 major buyers wielding a combined purchasing power of 50 billion euros, SIAL Paris offers unparalleled visibility and business opportunities on the global stage. Moreover, the event serves as a cornerstone of culinary diplomacy, with over 100 official delegations expected to grace the occasion.
