The event will be organized with the collaboration and support of all the associations representing the world of beverage and food for the Horeca market and the ITA Italian Trade Agency for the selection and organization of business meetings with carefully chosen international buyers.

Beer&Food Attraction will have a strictly B2B format and offer industry and trade members the means for being globally competitive, at both the digital edition and the live one.
Along with the digital edition of Beer&Food Attraction, confirmation has also been announced of the professional appointments of BBTECH Expo, the expo dedicated to technology for the production and packaging of beer and beverages, and Italgrob´s International Horeca Meeting.
