NATEXPO: The Leading International Gathering For The Organic Sector In France
On 20-22 October this year, buyers and decision-makers from the French and international organic sector are set to meet up at the Paris Nord Villepinte Exhibition Centre for the 2019 edition of NATEXPO.
Seven months ahead of its opening date, all figures indicate that organic-sector professionals will be out in force at the reference event for their business sector.
More than 250 exhibitors at this edition come from outside France, and the surface area occupied at NATEXPO 2019 by non-French companies is up by 40%, compared with the last Paris event.
Some 16 countries are already represented, and NATEXPO will be welcoming a number of national pavilions for the first time.
NATEXPO 2019: Organic Beyond Borders
As the must-attend trade event for the organic world, NATEXPO offers an opportunity to get a wide overview of the hottest trends in the fast-growing organic market.
Visitors can discover the latest developments in organic products from all over the world in every sector: food, cosmetics and hygiene products, health food and dietary supplements, ingredients and raw materials, household and personal products and services, and services and equipment for retail.
With 1,000 exhibitors and more than 15,000 visitors expected, NATEXPO is the imperative organic event for autumn 2019, both for French professionals and for international firms wishing to develop their business in the French market.
In addition, in a move to support sector manufacturers in building their export business, NATEXPO is kicking off its brand-new NATEXPO International Tour in the first half of 2019.
For its first stage, running from 12 to 14 April, NATEXPO will be running a 145-square-metre pavilion at the EcoSalud Barcelona 2019 exhibition, dedicated to health food and organic and natural products.
This pavilion will host a new-product gallery, comprising around 30 innovative products presented by NATEXPO’s French and international exhibitors. It will also aim to raise the awareness of Spanish suppliers to the potential of the French market, while, in parallel, French and international professionals will be invited to attend talks on the opportunities offered by the Spanish market.
In May, the NATEXPO International Tour will continue with two export missions, each lasting a day, taking sector professionals to meet local buyers in Amsterdam and Brussels.
A Growing International Influence
The reputation of NATEXPO is spreading all over the world.
Sixteen countries from Europe, North and South America, and Asia are already represented at the show, meaning: professionals in attendance will have the chance to develop business ties with firms from Austria, Belgium, Canada, Germany, Greece, Indonesia, Italy, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Peru, Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan and the United Kingdom.
This year’s contingent includes the debut participation of exhibitors from Indonesia.
In addition, demonstrating their belief in the appeal and vitality of the French market, seven countries have decided to organise national pavilions at this year's event. These include the Netherlands, Peru, Canada, Austria, Belgium and Italy.
The pavilion representing Italy will be twice as large as the country’s pavilion at the previous edition.
