ProSweets Cologne, the only supplier fair exclusively for the sweets and snacks industry, will be organized in Cologne from 28 to 31 January 2024. Over 250 exhibitors from over 25 countries will bring the entire know-how of the international supplier industry for sweets and snacks together in Hall 10.1 in January. ProSweets is once again being co-staged with the leading global trade fair, ISM, which will ensure many profitable synergies between the two fairs.
Important industry giants are on board once again, including among others Aasted ApS, ACMA S.p.A., Albert Handtmann Maschinenfabrik GmbH & Co. KG, Boettger Food Ingredients GmbH, Cavanna S.p.A., Dumoulin, FUJI Packaging GmbH, Gerhard Schubert GmbH, GNT Group B.V., Hänsel Processing GmbH, Hansella GmbH, LIVE-TECH S.R.L., Loesch Verpackungstechnik GmbH + Co. KG, M.C. Automations srl, Maschinenfabrik Seydelmann KG, MEMAK PLASTIK GIDA MAKINA SANAYI TIC A.S, NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH, Norevo GmbH, SACMI Packaging & Chocolate S.p.A., Sollich KG, Syntegon Technology GmbH, Theegarten-Pactec GmbH & Co. KG, Trikno AG, ULMA Packaging S.Coop. and Wilhelm Rasch GmbH & Co. KG.
The trade show will feature an interactive event programme in the exhibition sections “Packaging & Packaging Materials” and “Raw Materials & Ingredients”. In the course of the sustainability debate, the “Sustainable Packaging Special Show” will focus on the origin and procurement of products and their raw materials. The special “InGREENients” exhibition zone will present sustainable snack innovations from all over the globe that are made using unusual ingredients. Here, with a view to future cooperation, the exhibitors and visitors can engage in a direct exchange with selected start-ups, who will present their products within the collaboration section.
Together and in close coordination with ISM, the leading global trade fair for sweets and snacks, promising synergy effects are arising in 2024 for both trade fairs: For example, the exhibitors of ISM, who are already on-site, can take part in coordinated Guided Tours across all segments of ProSweets. The emphasis here is above all on sustainable packaging concepts. Furthermore, ISM exhibitors can invite their employees, who are particularly responsible for the visitor groups relevant for ProSweets, i.e. from the production and development areas, to visit the trade fair.
The programme on the Expert Stage encompasses exciting trend lectures and further industry-specific focuses. The ProSweets Cologne Party on Monday evening, which invites everyone to round the trade fair day off nicely while enjoying live music, snacks and a cool beer, is also back. ProSweets Cologne and ISM competently cover the entire value chain for sweets and snacks with the interlinked content of both trade fairs and turn Koelnmesse into the international hub of the entire industry with their unique offer.
