BIOFACH/VIVANESS 2021, Trade Fair Goes Digital

In 2021 BIOFACH and VIVANESS will take place as a purely digital format. The World’s Leading Trade Fair for Organic Food and the International Trade Fair for Natural and Organic Personal Care will be held as a BIOFACH / VIVANESS eSpecial. In making this decision, organiser NürnbergMesse is responding to the altered circumstances of the dynamically evolving pandemic and its effects on the global organic food and natural and organic cosmetics community. At the same time, this move will allow secure planning for the entire globally connected sector. The dates for the BIOFACH / VIVANESS 2021 eSpecial are 17-19 February.

Petra Wolf, member of the NürnbergMesse management board, had this to say: “The numerous conversations and in-depth dialogue we have had in recent weeks and months have made one thing clear to us. Within the organic food and natural and organic cosmetics sector the desire for interaction, networking and knowledge transfer with experts, and to discover trends and innovations, remains huge and unabated, especially in these exceptional times. Even in this era of coronavirus, the entire sector is absolutely determined to come together to discuss the latest issues, even if only in the digital sphere. However, in the light of the pandemic and based on our ongoing dialogue with the community and a comprehensive survey of exhibitors and visitors, we trust that our decision to host a digital event will now enable all players from the sector to plan ahead in good time. I very much regret that the physical trade fair cannot take place and stress that this decision was an extremely difficult one for all of us. However, before we all meet again on site in Nuremberg in 2022, the BIOFACH / VIVANESS eSpecial will offer an ideal platform for professional dialogue in 2021.”

Exhibitor presentations – networking – congress

The BIOFACH / VIVANESS 2021 eSpecial provides a comprehensive range of innovative options such as corporate and product presentations, discussion and dialogue formats like round tables, and other formats for networking with industry experts. Sophisticated matchmaking functions that help interested parties to find the right exhibitors and vice versa are another integral part of the eSpecial format. BIOFACH and VIVANESS 2021 also offers the organic food and natural and organic cosmetics community extensive access to knowledge transfer at the BIOFACH and VIVANESS Congress, which has a global reach. The main congress theme in 2021 will be: Shaping Transformation. Stronger. Together.

BIOFACH / VIVANESS 2021 eSpecial is based on three main components: presentations of products and companies, a programme of high-level presentations and various interaction possibilities. As usual, the accompanying congress will also take place at BIOFACH / VIVANESS 2021 eSpecial. As an exhibitor, you can present your company and its achievements on an individual company profile page which will serve as the first point of contact for any potential customer – you might think of it as a combined calling card and substitute exhibition booth. They then become event participants who can attend presentations on the digital platform, view participants’ and companies’ profiles, and make contact with potential customers or partners using a variety of communication tools. As a first step, they’ll have support from an integrated matchmaking tool that will suggest interesting contacts for them.

BIOFACH / VIVANESS 2021 eSpecial is not a virtual exhibition in the strict sense; it’s a digital platform for presenting your company and products, for communicating with potential customers and partners, and for knowledge transfers. As an exhibitor, you’ll be presenting your company not in a virtual (graphical) booth, but on an individualised company profile page.
