Industry platform: Markant trade forum
Markant holds the trade forum twice a year and in doing so allows suppliers and retailers to exchange ideas with many business partners in a short space of time. It offers the platform to find out about the latest product ranges, new products and latest issues relating to the food and nonfood sectors and to present their own new concepts and promotions.
Approximately 300 exhibitors are at each trade forum and around 60 new exhibitors are at each event. An arena was built especially for start-ups to give new companies the opportunity to present themselves to retailers from across Germany and Europe. The garden and leisure exhibition was also integrated into the trade show concept of the trade forums in order to inform visitors in a more focused manner about new food and nonfood products.
