The markets are currently experiencing trends that are stimulating new business opportunities that demand a bespoke occasion for in-depth analysis and discussions for professional operators in the sectors involved.
the emerging trends: the growing attention towards organic and free-from
products for people with food intolerances, the issue of traceability
and Blockchain, which enables the traceability of the entire production process
from shopping trolley all the way back to the producers of the raw materials
used; the growing variety of health-related products on offer, mass
catering, which through company choice or respect for directives, is
increasingly turning towards products from the organic production chain and, to
conclude, the greater presence on the shelves of the distribution channels of
healthy snacks and ready meals, a phenomenon that correlates to the progressive
reconfiguration of the concept of dinner and meals in general.
contemporary issues that BolognaFiere will highlight at a new fair, to
support the now consolidated exhibition MarcabyBolognaFiere and that will
offer opportunities for in-depth study and a showcase for the wide array of
innovative solutions that the market offers. A Fair that is the result of
the long-standing collaboration with ADM (the Italian Association for the
Grocery Retail sector) and the specific know-how of BolognaFiere in the organic
sector, which has generated a new synergy between two international reference
fairs hosted at the Bologna Exhibition Centre: Sana, the International
Exhibition of Organic and Natural Products, which began more than 30 years ago,
and MarcabyBolognaFiere, the Private Label Conference and Exhibition, now
approaching its 16th edition. The
new initiative will be an innovative “satellite fair” in which the latest
market trends will be explored in Focus sessions for professional operators
through a brand new formula in which the exhibition and cultural content will
be expressed in a highly flexible way.
Organic, free-from, traceability and mass catering are among the key
topics that the Fair will explore, on 15 and 16 January 2020, during the same
days as MarcabyBolognaFiere, amplifying the business opportunities and
potential for creating synergies. The initiative will take place in pavilion
28, which has recently been completed as part of the development and restyling
plan at the Bologna Exhibition Centre that, thanks to a total investment of
over 130 million euros, will increase the exhibition space by 30% on completion
of the project in 2024, further reinforcing BolognaFiere’s leadership position.
“Sana Up” will be the space in
which to provide visibility to the most innovative products in the organic
sector; the most recent edition of Sana, which concluded successfully in
September, highlighted with even greater emphasis, on one hand, the success of
organic products, the dynamism of the sector and the constant search for new distribution channels, and on the other,
the interest of the large grocery retail groups in this production chain that,
in just five years, has seen its revenues double. Sana Up therefore promises to
serve as a showcase to preview the latest innovations from the world of organic
products and to facilitate contact between producers in this sector (food and
non-food) and representatives of the large grocery retail groups and other
sales channels, which participate each year at MarcabyBolognaFiere.

The future of exhibitions, congresses and events
Networking typically happens at real, in-person events. But it’s also possible to do it online; it just works a little differently. There are various options available to organisers.
New products and a well-conceived stand design are not the only drivers for a successful presence. Many other factors are also important, but trade fair planners often lose sight of them.
Trade fairs and trade fair companies need to constantly further develop, become more agile and flexible and offer services all year round. New, digital offerings are very important here. With its TrustedTargeting technology, Messe München offers its customers access to leading business-to-business decision-makers on the Internet.
Most exhibitors want to attract as much traffic as possible. The largest continuous space of an exhibition stand can be actively used for this purpose: A photorealistic floor is a design option that fulfils several functions at once.
