On 22 to 25 September 2020 Crocus Expo will host WorldFood Moscow, Russia’s leading food and drink exhibition, organized by Hyve Group.

 WorldFood Moscow 2020 will become the first industry event to take place offline after the lockdown. It will offer food manufacturers and suppliers the long-awaited opportunity to resume live communication, as well as to address various business needs, evaluate the market situation and catch up on new products, find new suppliers and partners, and make purchases.

Due to restrictions that are still effective in many countries, WorldFood Moscow 2020 will mostly feature companies from Moscow and 28 regions of Russia. This format will allow the visitors (80% being decision makers, as per current statistics) to comprehensively familiarize themselves with proposals by regional representatives and suppliers. In 2020, WorldFood Moscow meets the current request for import substitution, allowing the Russian business to find reliable partners for uninterrupted supplies even under restrictions; negotiate directly with top officials on favorable supply terms for Russia-made products of viable quality; form an up-to-date assortment matrix that meets the changed consumer demand. At WorldFood Moscow 2020, buyers of cafes, restaurants, hotels and catering establishments, growing in number every year, will be provided with the HoReCa Suppliers Guide, where companies ready to supply for the HoReCa segment will be specifically marked. The WorldFood Meetings scheduling service will make attendance as efficient as possible.

In 2020, more than 300 food manufacturers and distributors will exhibit their products, including over 500 novelties, in all 15 sections of WorldFood Moscow. More than 50 companies will be exhibiting at WorldFood Moscow for the first time.

This year, WorldFood Moscow received its first international support from the Azerbaijan Export and Investment Promotion Foundation (AZPROMO). The stand of Azerbaijan will feature 33 companies. Other international exhibitors will represent Greece, Kyrgyzstan, China, Lithuania, Moldova, Turkey, Uzbekistan, and France.
