Trade Fair Overview

The figures from SIAL Paris 2016 that was held between the 16 and 20 October at the Parc des Expositions, Paris-Nord Villepinte confirmed both SIAL’s leadership and its influence on international food markets, foodservices and PAIs. They also reflect the extent to which IAA competitiveness is based on innovation, and how the fair has helped forward-thinking food industry players (resolutely turned towards 2050) to meet the right people. It can be safely said that SIAL Paris has succeeded in its mission to help face the food challenges of both today and tomorrow.

7000 exhibitors (85% international) and even more brands attracted around 155 000 visitors, 70% from
abroad. That’s hundreds of buyers and players from all food sectors, all across the world. 120 official
international visitors, and 250 “events within the event” have highlighted the food world’s economic and
political current affairs, placing strategy at the heart of SIAL too. There were 2189 candidates for the SIAL
Innovation Awards – that’s 10% of worldwide innovation – and 15 prize winners. All of this confirms
SIAL’s role as a catalyst for global economic trade. Looking back over the event, one more thing stands out: the determination of French brands to grow internationally by proposing innovative, intelligent products for export – a reassuring sign of things to come.
