About the event


Cibus 2024 is set to take place from May 7th to May 10th 2024. Fiere di Parma S.p.A will not feature strict coronavirus security procedures due to the country lifting its domestic restrictions.


Cibus (Cibus International Food Exhibition) is a central meeting and business hub for the F&B industry. It is hosted in Fiera di Parma on over 120 000 m2 of event space. Initially, the Cibus trade fair occurred on a biannual basis. Yet, after extensive consideration, organisers opted to have the iterations occur annually. This enables participants to remain up-to-date about the current novel solutions, challenges, and trends within the related industries while conducting business. As a result, over 85 000 attendants take part in the editions. This includes over 80 000 visitors. Such participants represent institutions, food commerce chains, resorts, eateries, speciality stores, and trade associations. Visitors occupy positions like managers, buyers, executive chefs, wholesalers, distributors, food producers, and company directors.

The exposition, with its diversified product groups, such as flavouring, deli trade goods, drinkables, baby wares, snacks, and processed and fresh foods, should be overlooked as well.

Many leading companies attend the fair as visitors or exhibitors. Such include La Rocca, Renna, Mutti, Yogi Tea, ACMI, Costa d’Oro, Monini, and Nestle.
