Event Update

PLMA 2023 will be hosted as a live trade fair between May 23rd 2023 and May 24th 2023. The venue will be the RAI Exhibition Centre, which will not feature COVID-19 protective measures. This is due to the country removing its national Covid-related restrictions in 2022. Participants should note that they may have to show 3G entry documents upon arrival in the country due to its travel limitations.

A Brief Overview of PLMA 

PLMA has a long track record as a successful cross-border platform for the private label sector in Europe. It’s been going strong for nearly forty years and as a result has managed to generate an off-shoot event – PLMA Chicago, which is oriented towards the USA and Canada. PLMA covers the full spectrum of food and non-food private label products and fosters partnerships between manufacturers and retailers.
