Due to the ongoing Corona pandemic, the exhibitors announced that Spain’s and Portugal’s biggest trade event will not take place as planned. The two joint exhibitions have been rescheduled to September 2021.
The organisers of Organic Food Iberia & Eco Living Iberia, Diversified Communications and IFEMA, have recently announced that the show will now take place on the new dates of 8-9 September 2021 – instead of June – in Hall 8 at IFEMA - Feria de Madrid. According to a press release, the decision was made after close monitoring of information and discussion with the industry with respect to the continuing impact of Covid-19.
“Although there are positive signs that large scale events will be able to restart in the coming months, we still feel that June could be too early to run Organic Food Iberia and Eco Living Iberia. We want to deliver a second edition of the show that’s as safe and successful as possible, and with the recent news of vaccines and rapid testing, September feels like the right time to do that,” says portfolio director Vicky Holman.
Eduardo López-Puertas, General Manager at IFEMA, further declares “we are preparing our facilities with the latest technology in security and occupancy control systems, on the basis of the criteria established by the health authorities and the main international public bodies and industry organisations, so that we can welcome trade visitors and exhibitors to Organic Food Iberia and Eco Living Iberia with the maximum degree of safety, and guarantee that commercial activity and business generation can continue to take place effectively.”
