According to Comexposium, SIAL 2024 will take place as a face-to-face exhibition in Paris from 19.10.2024 to 23.10.2024. SIAL 2024 will be held at the Paris-Nord Villepinte. The most recent COVID-19 protective measures will not be put in place at the venue. This is due to France removing its pandemic-related restrictions.
No other international trade fair for the food and beverages industry can rival SIAL in its dedication to innovation and diversity in the baking and confectionery segments. The event has been a leader worldwide since its creation in 1986 to the point where the brand has successfully branched off to the Middle East in Abu Dhabi, China in Shanghai, Canada, and India. The reason is simple – you have the biggest players in the food sector under one roof.
Product groups include canned goods, confectionery, milk, fruit juices, spices, spirits, vegetables, meat products, food supplements and frozen foods as well as processing equipment and production equipment. That is the full processing chain from the start to the end.
Program-wise, there will be significant product and services displays and demonstrations along with stellar networking opportunities, and educational lectures and talks on the emerging trends and best practices. It is all you could ever want as an exhibitor.
SIAL has deep roots in its home city – Paris, France, where it has been taking place every two years in autumn. Editions run for a total of five days during the second part of October, alongside SIAL BOISSONS Internationale Getränkeausstellung.
The location is, of course, Paris-Nord Villepinte Parc d'Expositions et Centre de Conventions (VIPARIS) and COMEXPOSIUM serves as official organiser. Admission is given only to professional visitors and working hours are set from 09:00 am until 18:00 pm on all days, but be sure to check for any changes in programming.
Now let us discuss commuting. You can grab a shuttle bus from two locations - Porte Maillot and the Beauvais Airport to get to the exhibition grounds. The RER train service is also quite a reliable and efficient means to commute to the Paris-Nord Villepinte Parc d'Expositions.
What are people saying?
“Very quickly, we realised how much of a ‘sounding board’ SIAL Paris was. Not only did we have to be present, but we also had to plan our SIAL Paris in advance and - more importantly - choose our stand position,” said Yves Faure, Agro’Novae;
“From a general viewpoint, it is indisputably an excellent source of inspiration for the food sector. Another key asset is its location in Paris, which is the world capital for gastronomy and helps us to quickly and easily meet very many professionals working in export,” said Caroline Corlay, Champagne JM GOBILLARD & Fils;
“SIAL is quite simply one of the most important shows in the world dedicated to the food sector! It is a show rooted in Paris whilst also enjoying international reach thanks to the SIAL Network. It is perhaps the most important trade event for us because it attracts a lot of potential clients from the Iberian Peninsula and North Africa,” said Henry Goffaux, Managing Director of Continental Coffee;
