Food Industry Technology Show Korea enjoys successful premiere

Despite the corona pandemic, around 17,000 highly qualified visitors attended the new trade fair focussing on International Food Technology – Organisers DLG (German Agricultural Society) and Coex are satisfied with the positive response to the exhibition programme – The event took place from 25 to 28 November 2020 at the Coex Center, Seoul, South Korea, parallel with the 15th edition of Coex Food Week.

The organisers, DLG (German Agricultural Society) and Korea’s leading exhibition and venue management company Coex, are delighted with the results of the first Food Industry Technology Show Korea. Striking a first balance, Peter Grothues, Member of the Board of Management of DLG e.V., and Seung Kyeong Yang, Vice-President of Coex, say: “The Food Industry Technology Show Korea has instantly established itself as a future forum and promising business platform for decision makers and experts for food and food markets in North and East Asia.”

Around 17,000 visitors gathered information at Food Industry Technology Show Korea, held from 25 to 28 November 2020 at the Coex Center in the South Korean capital city Seoul, parallel with Coex Food Week, the leading trade fair for food and beverages in the markets of North and East Asia. Despite the corona pandemic and related travel restrictions, the around 330 exhibitors attending Coex Food Week and Food Industry Technology Show Korea covered the entire food value chain – from production to marketing. Among the premier exhibitors was an official German Pavilion with companies presenting latest innovations within the international food technology markets, made in Germany.

COVID-19 requires flexible business solutions and information services such as those offered by Food Industry Technology Show Korea. The trade fair was therefore accompanied by a new online platform offering both digital content and new networking and business opportunities complementing the exhibition programme with its outstanding safe business hygiene concept.

Information on the Food Industry Technology Show Korea:
The next Food Industry Technology Show Korea will again be held together with Coex Food Week and feature an extended conference programme. It is scheduled for 24 to 27 November 2021 at Coex Center, Seoul, South Korea.
