Industry Relevance

ProSweets is a rather newer trade fair as its first edition dates back to 2006, but in that time has managed to consolidate the entire processing chain for the confectionary industry in one place, which is an impressive feat to do. It’s why organisers report a steady increase over all major metrics of the fair. Editions are held annually at Kölnmesse and always bring the latest in technical advancements across the entire supply chain. The main product segments include raw materials and ingredients (spices, food additives), finished products (snacks, frozen food, drinks), packaging materials and packaging machines, refrigeration and air-conditioning technology, food safety and quality management, automation, robots and so much more. We also want to emphasize on the importance of innovation as part of the fair’s DNA as the popular Future Lab area shows.

Who Are You Going to Meet?

Organisers boast that ProSweets is the preferred business platform for sweets and snacks manufacturers, citing the fact that eight of the ten top brands in the world exhibit at the fair regularly. This ought to be a powerful signal to potential exhibitors to wonder about the viability of the event. A breakdown of attendance data reveals that roughly two thirds of all exhibitors (227) have come from outside Germany, and roughly the same division can be observed with the visitors (70%). The main countries to show interest in ProSweets are mainly from Europe with North America and Asia following suit.
