Discover the event schedule for SIAL China 2019

SIAL China will take place at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) from May 14th to 16th.

This year’s exhibition will occupy the full 199,500 square meter exhibition centre to accommodate an expected 4,300 exhibitors from 70 countries and regions.

The scale of SIAL China reflects the growing importance of Asia’s food and beverage market, valued not only for its consumer’s increased spending power but also for the producers and manufacturers of high quality and innovative products.” Said Jim Liu, CEO of SIAL China. “During the first edition of SIAL China in 2000, we occupied a modest 8,000 square meters and hosted 323 exhibitors. Today, through the support of our partners, exhibitors, and visitors, SIAL China holds an important place on the industry calendar.
