600 exhibitors, including a substantial international contingent, are expected at the next edition of NATEXPO, to be held on 23 and 24 September in Lyon. The trade show for organic professionals now takes place annually, to provide the keys to success in a booming economic sector.
The organic sector market is experiencing exceptional growth in France. Last year, it expanded by 17% to record sales of more than €8 billion . Research estimates that they could rise to €12 billion in two years’ time . Other market sectors can only dream of such spectacular growth, with demand outstripping supply. This opportunity worth seizing upon by professionals who have saved the date for this autumn for the trade show that discovers new organic trends, to be held at the heart of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region, a leading light in the development of organic produce.
For the thousands of visitors expected, this exhibition constitutes an exceptional opportunity, in a single venue, to get up-to-date on everything to do with organic products and services, from food to toiletries and from ingredients and cosmetics to health food and retail services.
Special features, theme zones and talks will also offer a chance to meet experts and discover the diversity of the players who contribute to the vitality of the organic sector day in and day out. NATEXPO thus offers two brand-new spaces: “Regional Focus”, where regional organic goods will be highlighted, and “Retail Expert”, which will allow the founders of organic stores to meet and discuss with retail experts.
