Koelnmesse postponed the international supplier fair for sweets and snacks ProSweets until April 23 to 25, when it will be held as a special edition. The announcement comes weeks after the one-time postponement of ISM, which is traditionally held simultaneously, to these dates with a shortened schedule. The decision was reached with feedback from industry sponsors and exhibitors.
“The feedback from our customers to the survey we carried out and the many personal discussions with our exhibitors underlines the need for the execution and offer of a ProSweets Cologne 2023 – Special Edition in April. […] The secret of ProSweets Cologne 2023’s success has also asserted itself – and this is the fact that it is staged parallel to ISM: their unique constellation of covering the entire value chain of the production and supplier industries and the trade. We are thus convinced that the exhibitors of ProSweets Cologne 2023 will be able to network with the relevant key players and do business in the usual manner in the course of this special edition,” explained Claire Steinbrück, the new Food Technology Vice President Trade Fair Management, Koelnmesse GmbH.
Important partners of ProSweets Cologne such as the German Agricultural Society (DLG), Sweets Global Network e.V. (SG), the German Confection Industry (BDSI) and the Central College of the German Confectionery Industry e.V. (ZDS) join the trade fair once again and will be involved in organizing the event and lecture program.
Over the coming weeks, the team of ProSweets Cologne will work on the concept of the special edition and inform all exhibiting companies and visitors about the new format in advance.
