Vitafoods Europe 2016 – Exhibition Review
Last month, ICNE (The International Centre for Nutritional Excellence Ltd), exhibited at the global nutraceutical event, Vitafoods Europe.
The exhibition was held at Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland. Vitafoods Europe have recently published a news alert, reviewing the success of the exhibition, which can be read HERE.
Vitafoods Europe played host to 17,666 visitors and 900 exhibitors, which was an increase of 13% and 10%, respectively, from last year. Not only were the number of visitors and exhibitors at an all-time high, but visitors from 115 different countries attended the exhibition. The numbers reported, highlight the importance of this event in being truly international. It also shows that Vitafoods creates the perfect opportunity for people to meet new contacts and businesses from all over the world, within one venue.
The show focussed on 4 main areas:
- Ingredients and Raw Materials
- Finished Products
- Contract Manufacturing and Private Label
- Services and equipment
This helped focus key areas of business in different sections of the venue, making it easier for visitors to navigate their way around the event.
As well as this, a number of visitor attractions showcased at the event, including:
- Sports nutrition zone
- Optimal Health Testing Centre
- Springboard Pavilion
- Vitafoods Launchpad
- Tasting Bar
The exhibition for ICNE was a huge success, with a remarkable number of enquiries. It gave us the opportunity to meet with existing and potential customers from all over the world, with a vast array of testing requirements.
We noticed a high demand for Glucosamine and Chondroitin analysis in raw materials and finished products. Analysis of vitamins, minerals, pesticides and heavy metals was also highly sought after.
We thoroughly enjoyed the event with everything that the venue had to offer, as well as having the opportunity to meet new and existing customers.
Thank you to Vitafoods Europe for hosting this event. Also, thank you to everyone that visited our stand and taking the time to talk to us about your business and laboratory testing requirements.
