Rimini, 26th September 2019 – Italian Exhibition Group (IEG), after 7 years of successes and constant development, is relaunching Foodnova (the network of new food requirements, from gluten- and lactose-free to vegan) which, instead of an annual frequency, is becoming six-monthly, being held in February 2020 (Rimini, 15-18 February) alongside Beer&Food Attraction and, from 7-11 November 2020, at Vicenza Cosmofood.
Foodnova, with its specialized proposal of supply and demand for new food requirements, products free from gluten and lactose and a for a vegan diet, which account for sales, also on the eating out market, that are constantly growing, is becoming a strategic component for the completeness of the two IEG dedicated to the Ho.Re.Ca. world.
Beer&Food Attraction, which anticipates the opening of the tourist season, and, with its brand-new pay-off, addresses Ho.Re.Ca trade members, presenting the food service/catering world´s new consumption methods and formats by means of food produce, beer and beverages, technology and furnishings and fittings for venues; then, in the autumn, Cosmofood, the key Ho.Re.Ca. expo in northeastern Italy and showcase for Italy´s excellent food and beverage products.
