Canada International Meat Exhibition

Exhibitions are the KEY to Rebuilding the Economies
Exhibitions connect businesses. At exhibitions throughout the world, notable moments happen all the time, products are lunched, innovation are born, leaders meet, government officials discuss critical topics, businesses are developed.
Exhibitions' main goal is to represent, promote and support the business interests of its exhibitors and visitors.

As we announced before, Canada’s Leading International Meat Industry TradeFair, MeatEx Canada, will now take place from 4 – 6 February 2021 at the Enercare Centre in Toronto.
MeatEx Canada is currently in coordination with health authorities and Enercare Center to resume trade fairs as part of new hygiene and safety concepts. Some measures would have a strong influence on our plans, that is why we would like to wait for the feedback from the authorities to avoid rescheduling after placement confirmations
All allocation, invoices and payments of our exhibitors participating in 2020 will be transferred to 2021 edition.

Vitafoods Europe transition to a large-scale virtual event in September 2020

A couple of months ago, as the world was preparing to go into lockdown in response to the global COVID-19 crisis, we announced the postponement of Vitafoods Europe. In light of the ongoing situation, and in consultation with key stakeholders across the health and nutrition community, Vitafoods has made the difficult decision to cancel the live event Vitafoods Europe in Geneva, Switzerland, originally rescheduled for the 1-3 September 2020.
Instead, Vitafoods will transition to a large scale virtual event, the Vitafoods Virtual Expo, at the start of September. Offering enhanced matchmaking opportunities, video networking and high-quality educational content, the Vitafoods Virtual Expo will be taking place from 7th to 11th of September 2020. The Vitafoods team is working through details that will support this transition and will be sharing updates via our website and social media platforms in the coming weeks.
We understand how important Vitafoods is to the industry and how much effort goes into preparing for it and so, in this difficult time, we would like to thank our community for its understanding and support.
We’re looking forward to continuing to drive our industry forward, connect our communities and support businesses, together.
