Koelnmesse President and Chief Executive Officer, Gerald Böse, announced the debut of Anuga Select at a press conference in Tokyo on 17 October 2022:
"Our business in Japan has always been an important cornerstone of our foreign portfolio. In addition to ISM Japan and our focus on the gourmet segment, we are very pleased to be making a further contribution to our customers in the food sector in Japan with Anuga Select."
Like ISM Japan, the premiere of which has been announced for 2023, Anuga Select is based on the recently initiated strategic partnership between Koelnmesse and the trade publishing house Japan Food Journal, which already organises several trade fairs in the food sector in Japan, including Fabex in Tokyo.
Japanese food fairs are widely seen as trendsetters and serve as the sector's first port of call worldwide for access to the entire Asian market. The Asia-Pacific economic region promises strong growth with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.2% during the forecast period from 2020 to 2025. Moreover, Japan is the third largest economic market after the U.S. and China, with a unique, highly sophisticated food and beverage culture.
Koelnmesse – industry trade fairs for the food and beverage sector: Koelnmesse is an international leader in organising trade fairs in the food and beverage segment. Events such as Anuga and ISM are established, world-leading trade fairs, hosted in Cologne/Germany. Anuga HORIZON in Cologne will mark the launch of an additional event format dedicated to food industry innovations. In addition to the events at its Cologne headquarters, Koelnmesse also stages numerous food trade fairs with different sector-specific areas of focus and content in further key markets across the world, including Brazil, China, India, Japan, Columbia, Thailand and the United Arab Emirates. These global activities enable Koelnmesse to offer its customers bespoke events and leading regional trade fairs in a variety of markets, thus creating the foundation for sustainable international business. Koelnmesse is also ideally positioned in the field of food technology with its leading international trade fairs Anuga FoodTec and ProSweets Cologne and its global network of satellite events.
