"For more than 20 years now, cfIA has had the ambition to bring together all agri-food professionals every year. Despite the exceptional situation, it was unthinkable not to allow all IAAs to meet, given the importance of the CFIA each year, both in the business generated and in the opportunities of the projects it supports, the organizers say. A few weeks ago, we formalized the holding of the 24th edition of the CFIA in Nantes, on September 29, 30 andOctober 1, 2020. This choice was mainly motivated by the fact that the Rennes Exhibition Park was unfortunately not available at this time. Supported and encouraged by its exhibitors, visitors and long-standing partners, and also thanks to the support of the Rennes Expo Park, the exhibition now has the opportunity to return to its historic lands. »
The CFIA 2020 will take place on 29, 30 September and1 October at the Parc Expo Rennes Airport.
"Rennes has always been the stronghold of cfIA, at the heart of Europe's leading agri-food region. Over time, it has also become the largest gathering of IAAs thanks to the quality and diversity of its offer,"the organizers stress.
With this decision, the CFIA reaffirms its ambition to organize a unifying and business-generating event in 2020, and is already giving an appointment to the entire profession for the CFIA Rennes 2021, to be held on 8, 9 - 10 June 2021 at the Rennes Airport Exhibition Park.
The first edition of CFIA Toulouse has been postponed to a later date.
"In the context we are going through, it is even more important to preserve the meeting, the exchange and the sharing! That's why we are doing everything we can to enable all agri-food professionals to quickly come together and revive the dynamics of a sector that has never stopped innovating and reinventing itself! The role of the CFIA is simply to accompany this momentum. We had the opportunity to return to Rennes, a stronghold of the CFIA, we could not refuse it. It's a logical and consistent decision in view of market expectations,"says Sébastien Gillet, director of CFIA trade shows.
