All the most important BIOFACH Congress facts and figures
THE knowledge transfer and networking event of the organic world
With over 9,000 participants, the BIOFACH Congress is the sector's largest international knowledge and networking platform and also in 2020, the BIOFACH Congress will once again revolve around practice-oriented topics and helpful, fact-based conversations. From 12 to 15 February 2020, the organic world will meet again in Nuremberg to discuss important topics, learn from each other and pass on knowledge at the congress that takes place at the same time as BIOFACH, the World’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).
Congress speakers will receive free admission for the duration of the trade fair, access to the VIP/Speakers Lounge and an entrance ticket for the exhibitors’ evening on Friday, 14 February 2020. The individual congress events will be published with their titles and speakers on the Internet and in the congress programme free of charge. BIOFACH will provide rooms with the required equipment (row seating, a lectern (without a notebook), presentation tables and a projector) assistance from the congress hostesses free of charge. Travel expenses, accommodation costs and other fees will not be paid.
