FRUIT LOGISTICA remains the heartbeat of the fruit and veg business: more than 66,000 visitors, alongside a further 24,000-plus exhibitor staff and 450 media representatives, took part in the show. 2,770 exhibitors presented their innovations.

This year, FRUIT LOGISTICA again positioned itself as an international meeting place for the industry – four out of five trade visitors came from abroad. With visitors from 145 countries and exhibitors from 94 nations, Fruit Logistica was more international than ever.

The world’s leading fruit and veg industry show brings together the trade’s top decision-makers, with attendance from the entire international value chain. More than 70 per cent of this year’s trade visitors were decision-makers. The opportunity to meet with old friends and new potential partners came at a crucial time, with several major challenges such as cost pressure and climate change continuing to make life tough for the international fruit and vegetable industry.

“So many of the visitors and exhibitors we spoke to said it was a really great feeling to be back at FRUIT LOGISTICA and catch up with so many people from all over the world in one place,” said event director Kai Mangelberger. “For us, that’s a really pleasing result, and makes us even more determined to build on that success. Especially in challenging times like these, face-to-face meetings at Fruit Logistica are more important than ever. With this in mind, it is certainly good news that we will not be increasing stand rental prices in the coming year.”
