All the most important BIOFACH Congress facts and figures
With over 9,000 participants, the BIOFACH Congress is the sector’s largest international knowledge and networking platform. From 17 - 20 February 2021, the organic world will meet again in Nuremberg to discuss future questions of the market and future strategies, to learn from each other and pass on knowledge at the congress that takes place at the same time as BIOFACH, the Worlds’s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food.
Congress events do not need to be registered for separately and are free of charge for trade fair visitors and exhibitors (see also Information about trade visitor registration).
Selected presentation contents and discussion results to the focal theme "Shaping Transformation. Stronger. Together." will be documented by a team from IFOAM - Organics International.
