Alimentaria will be held in May 2021 in agreement with the sector

The next edition of Alimentaria, the most important food, beverage and foodservice show in Spain and one of the most outstanding in Europe, will take place from May 17 to 20, 2021. Fira de Barcelona has agreed with the sector on the new dates for event, thus responding to the request of the main companies and associations in the industry and with the aim of celebrating it next year with the maximum possible participation and internationality. Anafric, as a member of the Intercarn committee, a room that encompasses the entire meat sector in Alimentaria, has supported the decision to postpone its celebration, a decision based “fundamentally on common sense”, according to Marcel Pons, member of the Board of Anafric.

Alimentaria no descarta un cambio de fechas

El director de Fira de Barcelona, Constantí Serrallonga, no descarta realizar un cambio de fechas para la celebración de la próxima edición de la feria Alimentaria en Barcelona. Serrallonga participó en una entrevista en Catalunya Radio donde confirmó esta posibilidad de cambiar de fechas: “Nuestro primer objetivo es trabajar para hacerla” ya que sería “un gran signo de normalidad”, pero la renuncia de participación de grandes empresas (nacionales e internacionales) hace que la organización no descarte la modificación de fechas hacia finales de 2020 o ya en 2021. “Si vemos conjuntamente que hay una fecha mejor para hacerla, no tendremos inconveniente porque al final lo importante es ayudar al sector y hacer de motor. Queremos encontrar un consenso”.

The fairs are back in the food sector. Registration opens for Meat Attraction

Meat Attraction 2021 has opened its registration period to participate in the next edition to be held from February 2 to 4. Organized by IFEMA and ANICE, the “Appointment with the best meats in the world” will pay a great tribute to all professionals in the meat industry on this occasion (#Proud of Our Sector). Anafric has participated in the different editions of the fair with a grouped stand. In this fourth edition, it will also.

28.8 billion euros lost due to the 3,300 fairs canceled or postponed

190 fairs canceled or postponed in Spain and 3,300 in Europe already leave a trail of 28.8 billion euros in losses until the end of June. Figures that have led to the Association of Spanish Fairs (AFE) and the Association of Congress Palaces of Spain (APCE), which also recall that other events such as 270 congresses have been suspended in our country, have decided to join efforts to request aid for the sector.
