SIAL Paris 2024: Melting pot of the food industry

The world’s leading food innovation exhibition, SIAL Paris, is set to mark its historic 60th anniversary in October this year.

From October 19 to 23, the Paris Nord exhibition centre in northern Paris will host over 7500 exhibitors from the international food industry. Add over 250,000 attendees, 75% from outside France, and it will be an unparalleled gathering of global innovators, thought leaders and decision-makers.

Throughout the five-day event, the food ecosystem will pulsate with vitality and conviviality, both with the exhibition centre and throughout Paris, featuring activities that capture the essence of the culinary world.

Inspired by the past to sustain the future

Under the theme ‘Own the Change’, SIAL 2024 aims to encourage industry professionals to embrace ongoing transformations and tackle global food challenges. This collective movement will be showcased by exhibitors’ CSR initiatives and highlighting expertise through initiatives like SIAL Insights, a biennial analysis of industry trends, SIAL Innovation, offering a glimpse into future developments, and SIAL Start-Up, which will feature promising start-ups in 2024, including early-stage concepts.

France and Italy are vying for the top spot, with Italy currently leading in exhibition space, boasting over 16,000sqm. Notably, China returns with vigor, showcasing more than 6000sqm of pavilions, while Ukraine and India demonstrate their growing influence on the global stage.

Several countries from Africa will also be prominently featured, underscoring the event’s commitment to inclusivity and diversity within the industry. Expectations are high for a greater representation compared to previous editions, with the Ivory Coast and Senegal already confirming their participation as well as first-time participants from Uganda and Libya,
