Always right where the action is – both online and in person

This year as well, BIOFACH and VIVANESS will take place both in person and online. Take advantage of the best of both worlds: the innovative trade fair concept combines on-site encounters with the benefits of the virtual world.

On site - Online - Hybrid

On site: Right in the thick of things and in person – nowhere else is like Nuremberg. Nothing replaces the feeling of experiencing the trade fairs in person, experiencing products with all of your senses, meeting people and exchanging not just business cards, but also ideas and experiences.

Online: You can’t make the trip? You can still join us – from home or even if you’re on the go! The digital event platform of BIOFACH and VIVANESS gives you an overview of the exhibitors and their products and services, and lets you experience congress events in a livestream or as a recording.

Hybrid: Use the Talque app to enhance your trade fair experience and spend more time on meaningful encounters: the hall plan, along with exhibitor and product searches, ensure you will always find exactly what you are looking for. And you can network directly with other trade fair participants in the digital matchmaking section.

And this year, the BioThesis research prize will again honour exceptional ideas concerning sustainability issues in the organic food sector.

BIOFACH Congress: Organic. Food sovereignty. True prices.

What contribution does organic food make to food security and food sovereignty? And how do the “real prices” pave the way for an ecological transformation of the food and nutrition industry? These are the key questions the international congress at BIOFACH 2023 and the associated forums will be addressing in detail. Over a total of four congress days, the congress will explore and discuss the potential of the organic food industry and organic agriculture in terms of a “grandchild-friendly” future for our planet, the role of an honest cost accounting of conventional and organic food, and the importance of actively protecting the climate – especially in times of crisis – for stable, regional value chains and resilient farming systems.

The congress programme is jointly organized by IFOAM – Organics International, Bund Ökologische Lebensmittelwirtschaft (BÖLW) and BIOFACH.

Planning safely together!

The safety of all participants remains the top priority at BIOFACH/VIVANESS. The hygiene concept of NürnbergMesse has already proven successful in 2022 and has shown us that it is possible to hold trade fairs with a well-planned hygiene concept. We will provide you with information about the hygiene concept for BIOFACH/VIVANESS 2023 in good time prior to the trade fair, which will be tailored precisely to the individual specifics of the event, as well as to the applicable hygiene and protection measures in force at that time.
