Cibus Tec Doubles Up with a New Forum

Cibus Tec, the event organised by Fiere di Parma and Koelnmesse dedicated to the food and beverage technologies sector presents a brand-new project: “Cibus Tec Forum”, the first edition of which will be staged in Parma (Italy) in October 2022.

The trade fair Cibus Tec (whose reputation in the sector of food and beverage technologies precedes it) will instead be held on October 2023. A postponement by 12 months made necessary by a disharmonious fair calendar which, amongst other events, has already seen Koelnmesse’s sister trade fair schedule “Anuga FoodTec” in April 2022.

Antonio Cellie and Thomas Rosolia – respectively CEO and Chairman of Koeln Parma Exhibitions, the operative arm of Cibus Tec – are in no doubt about the new strategy.

“Our main objective has always been to give exhibitors in the sectors involved in our exhibition everything they need, as concrete business opportunities in a harmonized food technology trade fair calendar. Hence our decision to postpone Cibus Tec by twelve months. It is now conveniently programmed to take place in 2023, and we will be resuming our usual three-yearly agenda from 2025 onwards.”

Anuga FoodTec will accordingly be the first major international “post-Covid” food technology trade fair. An event that will also see the support of partner exhibition Cibus Tec, ensuring the solutions of the “tech” firms in its community are showcased whilst fostering attendance of Italian and international visitors alike. The Koelnmesse event in Cologne will allow the very latest, most refined home-grown Italian technologies to receive high visibility, whilst affording all the business opportunities which the international visitors of Anuga FoodTec guarantee.

In 2016 Fiere di Parma and Koelnmesse agreed on a partnership, thanks to which both fairs and organisations have pooled their communities and networks of relations, numbering somewhere in the region of 11 thousand businesses.
