About the event


IFE will once again take place in 2023. The new dates are confirmed for the dates of March 20th to March 22nd at ExCel London. The UK does not have strict prevention measures concerning the hosting of trade fairs. However, participants are strongly encouraged to wear face masks during their visit to IFE 2023. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the event!


IFE (International Food and Drink Event) is a leading trade of pivotal importance to the F&B industry. It is among the prominent events for presenting innovations and conducting business. The trade show receives over 1,500 exhibitors and more than 30,000 visitors from over 100 countries. A notable feature of the visitors is that 73% of the group has significant purchasing power. This is due to many attendees having a position, such as a manager, head of a department, or director. They also include C-Suite executives, controllers, global leads, chefs, assistants, buyers, senior developers, company owners, and coordinators.
