About the event
Although initially was considered to be held in May 2021, the coronavirus pandemic made plans for a physical event impossible. Alimentaria Exhibitions S.A. made the tough decision to skip the show’s regular scheduling and resume it as a physical event in April 2022. Fira Barcelona Gran Via will welcome professionals involved in the food and beverage industry once again starting on April 4th and wrapping up on April 7th. Alimentaria 2022 will serve as a much-needed restart for the industry. Exhibitors and visitors will be able to conduct their affairs and attend the rich support program amidst COVID-19 precautions.
Spain is among the countries with the richest culinary traditions in the world and a contributor to the F&B and HoReCa sectors. It is no surprise then to discover that it is also a host to one of the most influential trade shows in Europe. This international trade show is one of massive scale and size as it is dubbed as the six-shows-in-one and takes place every two years in Barcelona, Spain, to a grand reception from chefs, buyers, and manufacturers. Alimentaria runs out of the modern halls of Fira Barcelona – Gran Vía and programming lasts for four days. What makes Alimentaria, so essential is the commitment to innovation. Alimentaria Trends is a whole exhibition area dedicated to new trends from sustainability, organic and ecological to allergen-free and halal foods.
Given its sheer scale and rich product portfolio, Alimentaria is broken into six distinct areas. There’s Intervin (wine), Intercarn (meat), Interlact (dairy), Multi Foods, Restaurama (restaurants and catering) and Expoconser (canned food). As you can see, there’s every single possible food group and related service on display, which makes the trade show appealing to buyers from both retail and the HoReCa sector. Additional divisions of space cover local exhibitors under the flag of Lands of Spain, while many European, American, Asian and African countries are showcasing flavors from their homes at the International Pavilions. The exhibitor catalog features big names such as CZECHTRADE, DELPEYRAT IBERICA, S. L., UNICER ESPAÑA, S.L., VIÑA COSTEIRA S.C.G., WELLFARM CO. LTD and ZUMOSOL Y PERNIGOTTI.
Did You Know?
Alimentaria gives opportunities for senior buyers from catering, retail, e-commerce, wholesalers, and distributors to best find their way to what they are looking for. One of the best examples is the Olive Oil Bar, which is a series of guided tastings. This way, exhibitors are able to meet with target customers and have a much higher chance to convert. Taste is a big, big component of how things are done in the food and beverage industry. That’s why visitors can engage all their senses at The Experience Live Gastronomy. You will get to see, smell, touch and taste incredible creations. The whole area is dedicated to show-cooking demonstrations, workshops and tasting sessions,

Great! Thank you very much!
I really enjoy working with you :)
I was very happy with my stay at Novum Hotel Lichtburg am Kurfurstendamm***. I'm happy with the standard. It is clean and very well located. And for the price you pay is worth it. Thank you very much. For next edition I will make sure to let you know.
Thanks for your email. For the Golden Leaf, generally speaking, it is a good experience. There are the tasty apples and free coffee and tea in the lobby. The people in the hotel are very nice. We just complain about the wi-fi in the hotel is not good, I can't use it in my room. I found many guests complaining about it in the reception. But anyway, thanks for your help.
How are you? We are very happy with the hotel and I would like to do the reservation to next FAKUMA in 2023. Can you check it please?
Thank you for your continued support throughout out booking process and even afterwards 😊
The stay was great, and I will be sure to keep in touch for future bookings.
You are a complete and utter star!!!
Thank you so much for all of your efforts with this, I really do appreciate you fighting our corner on this one and for getting them to add in the special clause. I cannot thank you enough. This truly is an example of great customer service :-) and you can quote me on that!
Please do go back and confirm with them.
Thank you again.
Have a lovely evening!
Thanks for everything, sorry for the confusion. I still own you a feedback from Hamburg. The Apartment Hotel - The location was not that bad, considering you are going there for the SMM show not for holiday. I had a subway station 10-12 min walk distance which was very useful , 3.20 Euro /day I was going back and forward from the exhibition center. - At the Hotel .base floor, they have a small restaurant and bar, but near the hotel at a 15m min range walk, you can find something to eat like, Pizza`s, McDonalds, Chinese Restaurant, Turkish Restaurant, German beer house with brezzels and sausages, etc - The room was a decent one, you can feel is an old Hotel by the building construction and the furniture vintage alike that gives you the impression of the `90`s, but they were clean, and looking good. - The room cleaning was ok, and also the guys from the front desk were quite polite and helpful. - Breakfast area was large which I like it the most, you did not feel crowded having many tables where to sit. The diversity was ok, nothing special, but looking clean and lots of personnel available for the coffer, table cleaning/arranging, etc - The down points are that rooms do not have A/C , the single room, has two small beds with separate mattresses put together, so if you want to roll over you will have a gap in the middle, so anyway you will use only one single bed. They say that the tap water is drinkable in Germany , but a hotel that respects its status, should offer complementary water bottle every day for the ones who prefer to stay safe, there wa sonly one 1L bottle at the first day and that`s it, I mean it costs 1Euro , you can add it to the room costs. The bathroom was only with liquid soap, no shower gel or shampoo. This is the most honest feedback you will get…
Convenient location to the Messe Duesseldorf and to the Airport. Next to the KAMPS bakery who opens at Sunday morning.
Many thanks. The B&B Hotel was very nice actually. Fairly basic, but perfect for business travel. Clean, efficient and helpful staff, and a decent location overall.
Many thanks for your help.
Everything was ok and good location of the hotel.
Thanks a lot for everything, we are satisfied with the service provided by you. Location was suitable in the centre of Dortmund City, and hotel was very comfortable, clean, and friendly employees.
I am glad to use your service year by year .
