The world’s largest food innovation exhibition

SIAL Paris is a global showcase for the food industry that brings together the key producers and buyers to reveal the trends and innovations that will shape the food industry of tomorrow. Every two years, producers, importers, buyers and retailers, as well as the specialized press and independent associations meet at Paris Nord Villepinte for five days of inspiration, debate and exchange.

More than 7,000 international exhibitors, from start-ups to large groups, presenting a new trendy product or a reference in the sector, an established chain or an innovative distribution model, present their products to 265,000 visitors from food, retail and hospitality sectors.

44 Promosalons delegations are involved in promoting the SIAL abroad.

SIAL is the world’s leading food trade show network with unrivalled geographical coverage: Europe and the world (Paris), North America (Montreal, Toronto and Las Vegas), and Asia (Delhi, Jakarta, Shanghai, Shenzhen). With this global presence, SIAL has not only developed a very thorough knowledge of all the players in the industry, but has also become the privileged and recognized observer of trends and innovations around the world.

SIAL Paris also presents the SIAL Innovation Observatory, the largest food innovation competition in the world with 300 innovative products exhibited at each edition and prizes in 15 different categories.

The SIAL Talks, a comprehensive program of conferences, debates and round tables, allow visitors to follow the current issues and major trends in the food sector, from the geopolitics of global warming to technological approaches to logistics “from the fork to the plate”. Numerous inspiring speakers, scientists, business analysts and industry specialists come to share their views, exchange ideas and provide inspiration to participate in the kitchen of tomorrow.

The Future Lab dives into the culinary world of tomorrow and deciphers the technologies and transformations to discover what we will be eating, and how, in ten years.
