We launched Vitafoods Europe in 1997 to meet the growing demands of the emerging nutraceutical industry. CEO and Founder, Nick Hawker, believed there was a need for a dedicated exhibition and scientific conference to fill a gap in the market at the time.
Back then, our event featured only 100 exhibitors in 2,500 square meters of floor space and attracted 1,200 visitors. 22 years later, the 2019 edition of Vitafoods Europe welcomed more than 1,250 exhibitors in 23,000 square meters of floor space and gathered over 25,000 visitors in the Palexpo Exhibition Hall.
This annual gathering sees a truly global audience across four sectors covering the entire nutraceutical supply chain, from beginning to end. Our exhibition, conference and networking events form the perfect ecosystem for businesses to thrive and forge long term collaborations, enrich their understanding and initiate critical conversations around the most pressing issues concerning the health and nutrition industry.
