Press releases about BIOFACH
From 14 September to 16 September 2017, the Baltimore Convention Center will once again be dedicating itself entirely to organic foods. BIOFACH AMERICA – ALL THINGS ORGANIC, which is taking place at the same time as the Natural Product Expo East, will then be opening its doors for those involved in the organic market. Over 1,500 companies are expected to participate, of these 190 purely organic exhibitors, and more than 28,000 visitors. The trade visitors can once again look forward to a highly international event. Not only will there be a Korean pavilion and an enlarged Argentinian pavilion, but also a Polish one. In addition, companies from Italy, Great Britain, France and the Netherlands amongst other countries have announced their participation. NürnbergMesse offers the possibility of securing a niche in the popular Tabletop Area for organic food companies who decide at short notice to familiarise themselves with the American market and to present themselves without too much investment at BIOFACH AMERICA – ALL THINGS ORGANIC.
When BIOFACH INDIA together with INDIA ORGANIC opens its doors on 9 November, it will transform itself into a central meeting point for organic experts and decision-makers from all over the world: the parallel event, also being held in the India Expo Mart (IEML) halls in Greater Noida near New Delhi, is the 19th IFOAM Organic World Congress under the motto “An Organic World through an Organic India”. The two events are expecting a high-profile visitor: India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi has already confirmed he will be attending. Dr Roland Fleck, CEO of the NürnbergMesse Group, is convinced: “This unique cooperation between both events offers experts from the organic sector an even larger dialogue and trade platform.” And CEO Peter Ottmann went on to add: “With it, we are creating synergy effects and offering the possibility of an even broader exchange.”
