The challenges and effects of Covid-19 are clearly evident at all levels, in all markets, industries and sectors. In the context of many trade fairs in the food technology section worldwide postponed due to Covid-19, the partners of ProFood Tech, PMMI, IDFA and Koelnmesse therefore decided, following extensive consideration, to cancel the trade fair edition planned for 2021 in Chicago, USA
(13-15 April 2021) in the customary form at an early date, in order to make an active contribution to the planning security of our exhibitors in these difficult times.
The partners appreciate the continued confidence and support of all ProFood Tech exhibitors, business partners and industry stakeholders. For the upcoming exhibition season, we look forward to continuing to independently host such quality trade fairs and leading events as PACK EXPO, Anuga FoodTec and the Dairy Forum.
Koelnmesse generated more than 400 million euro in revenue worldwide in 2019 and has a workforce of more than 1,000 people. As a city trade fair location in the heart of Europe, it is home to the third-largest trade fair grounds in Germany and ranks among the top ten in the world, with approximately 400,000 m² of hall space and outdoor area.
