The organisers for this event are Alimentaria Exhibitions S.A. and editions run the full length of four days at the Fira Barcelona Gran Vía. As to what is showcased, you have the entire value chain showcased in thematic exhibition halls such as Intervin (wine), Intercarn (meat), Interlact (dairy), Expoconser (canned food) and Restaurama (restaurants and catering). It is the perfect source for information in the industry and an opportunity to boost sales leads.

Over 140,000 trade visitors are expected to come to Barcelona, Spain. One of the main reasons behind Alimentaria’s great success is the fact it shares a stage with another trade fair in the food, gastronomy, and catering equipment industries. We’re walking, of course, about Hostelco. Together, they command the trends in international markets and attracts large buyers thanks to its dedicated buyers’ program, which has been lucrative for all involved. There’s no other event that delivers such a return on investment.
