Informa Markets has announced the success of Vitafoods Europe 2022 both online (2-13 May) and in person at Palexpo, Geneva (10-12 May), with 15,251 attendees from over 130 countries taking part. This brings attendance back to the 2019 level.
Almost 700 companies exhibited at the event, 100 of those for the first time. Also returning to the event were DSM Nutritional Products, Lonza Capsules & Health Ingredients, Chr. Hansen, NZMP (Fonterra), Gelita, KSM-66 Ashwagandha, Kemin, and Lallemand Health Solutions.
Said Julien Bonvallet, Brand Director, Informa Markets: “We’ve worked hard to make this the best edition of the show yet to help both visitors and exhibitors spring back to business. We continue to evolve Vitafoods Europe as one of our flagship events, to not only reflect key industry topics and trends, but also visitor feedback. For example, our visitors told us they wanted even more networking, so we added more space for this as well as brought back popular events like the Community Breakfast and 5k run. Our audience also told us that they wanted to hear from more diverse voices and gain an understanding of the big ideas and innovations changing the industry. Responding to this, we added a wider range of speakers and companies into the agenda this year – from Doctors, Scientists and R&D professionals to regulatory bodies, manufacturers and research organisations.
“We also know that sustainability really matters to our audience. This is a key focus for us at Informa Markets too. As such, we continue to work to make Vitafoods Europe an even more sustainable event – from going paperless, reducing waste and increasing recycling, to using environmentally friendly show materials, and hosting focused content sessions and speakers.
“Connecting back with industry peers and meeting new faces in Geneva has been superb – this is what makes Vitafoods a key event for nutraceuticals professionals. We’re delighted to be back at our usual May timings in Geneva too – there was a real buzz and energy around the show floor which was wonderful to see. As ever, thank you to all our visitors, exhibitors and speakers this year, as well as our on-site team and facilitators!” Vitafoods Europe will return in May 2023: the in-person event will be held in Geneva 9-11 May 2023.
