The Girona Gastronomical Forum closes its door with a new public success and the big satisfaction of the participating companies.

More than 25 000 people visited the exhibition during the three days of this food trade fair.

Moreover, it has been announced that the next edition of the Gerona Gastronomic Forum will be held on November 18, 19 and 20 of 2018.

A forum full of people, companies and activities to discover. Barcelona Export visited the event to find food companies interested in exporting their products and was able to confirm the high gastronomic quality of our region. Participation has increased by more than 30% since the 2015 edition, with more than 25,000 visitors.

We appreciated the satisfaction of the exhibitors, like the former and loyal participants who are exhibiting at the Forum year after year, as well as newcomers who for the first time wanted to participate on the event, which has been considered as a great form of promotional platform. Companies have also been able to do business and conclude many commercial transactions, especially at the international level, thanks to the reverse missions in which buyers from the Nordic countries were interested in the products present at the Forum.

Von Arend also wanted to point out that the fair is the largest event where all sectors of the catering and hospitality industry are represented. In total, more than 250 companies. Additionally, they pointed out that the exhibition space has been very dynamic at all times, since during the three days the stands haven’t stopped to offer activities. Especially, sessions such as those given by Joan Roca, Andoni Luis Adúriz and Paco Pérez, in the Auditori, recorded nearly a thousand people each.
