Who Are You Going to Meet?
Although Sirha is an incredibly large trade fair, it more or less serves as a key meeting point for the experts and trade visitors in France as only a little over 30,000 visitors have come from outside of France, which is still a large number, even if the ratio is in favor of French nationals. Countries with biggest presence at Sirha are Switzerland, Spain, Italy, Belgium, Japan, Hungary, Germany, the UK, Norway and the USA. The same can also be said about exhibitors, where only 28% of exhibitors were international. Visitors come from all corners of the industry – catering, bakery and pastry, education and training, wholesale and distribution, food trades and even architects.
