About the event

Initial plans to host Anuga 2021 in person are going through with ample coronavirus protective measures in place. The official dates are October 9th – October 13th at the Koelnmesse in Cologne, Germany. The exhibition grounds will feature social distancing and the latest and best in sanitation.

Koelnmesse GmbH is a firm believer that COVID-19 can’t stop live events for very long and it’s important to restart the food and beverage industry. To that end, Anuga will now be a fully hybrid event. Those unable to attend in person can tune in the brand new Anuga @home platform to get the same amount of useful information and knowledge.
