To be held in Shanghai from 17 to 19 May, SIAL China 2017 is set to attract 3,200 exhibitors and 80,000 professional visitors from more than 67 countries. As China currently represents 11 percent of global food and beverage sales, SIAL China’s influence is also growing at fast pace.

“Last year was a record year for SIAL China. Its influence continued to expand beyond China, and we are very encouraged by the feedback we received from the exhibitors and visitors,” said Paul Lee, CEO of organiser Comexposium Asia Pacific.

In 2016, 95 percent of all surveyed exhibitors were satisfied, 92 percent will recommend it, and 88 percent will participate again next year.
“It’s an honour to provide a platform for domestic and international food producers and buyers to meet, communicate, and get inspired to improve their business,” said Jim Liu, president of SIAL China. “For SIAL China 2017, we will increase the exhibition’s influence by accepting more exhibitors and visitors into an environment that inspires and promotes further collaborations.”

The trade show will provide all attendees with valuable insights into the Asian market through nine interactive business events. Until 30 November, prospective exhibitors can catch the early bird discount.
