Your checklist for Vitafoods Europe 2021

We’re not far away from being able to open the doors at Palexpo, Geneva. This year Vitafoods Europe will be paper-FREE. We made this decision to keep you safe and minimise contact points. Instead, we have a number of digital tools available, including a digital badge and QR codes so that you get all the information you need, only with a click (or a scan)!

We created this infographic to help you plan your visit and be prepared and detailed steps on what you should be doing before the event, during the event and after the event. 

A little preparation is needed but we promise, it is worth it!


Step 1: Check latest travel advice

You can rest assured that your health and safety will be our number one priority. In addition to COVID Certificate checks on entry, expect sanitiser stations throughout the venue; contactless registration and stand builds to maximise space.
