Vitafoods Europe postponement due to COVID-19

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 health situation, Vitafoods Europe has been postponed to September 2020 

Vitafoods Europe joins the list of industry trade shows that are postponed due to COVID-19 concerns. Following close consultation with its partners in the international nutraceutical industry, Vitafoods Europe has made the decision to reschedule this year’s event to September 1-3, 2020 at Palexpo, Geneva, Switzerland. The move is a direct result of the uncertainty caused by the ongoing COVID-19 situation. In light of the news, NutritionInsight speaks to several of the event’s exhibitors, who have responded with mixed feelings on the topic, as it delays launches and operations. Nonetheless, most companies are unanimous in stressing that health comes first.  “In light of the ongoing COVID-19 health situation, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone Vitafoods Europe to September 2020.  This conclusion is not one that has been reached easily. However, following consultation with our stakeholders, and taking the continually evolving health concerns and travel restrictions into consideration, we have agreed that the postponement is the best course of action,” note the organizers of the event.  “We understand how important Vitafoods Europe is to the industry and how much effort goes into preparing for it and so, in this unprecedented situation and difficult time, thank our community for its understanding and support. We’re looking forward to coming together later in the year to continue to drive our industry forwards,” the event planners add.  Despite the slew of shows being cancelled in recent weeks, Vitafoods Europe had made no comment until now. Industry has mostly commended the show for its early notification of the rescheduling, with Isabel Gómez, Lipofoods Marketing Manager of Lubrizol Life Science noting that safety and well-being are top priority.  Lipofoods totally support Vitafoods’ organizers decision and we are quickly adapting the original plan to make it work for the new dates.
