The organisers of foodpro have announced the cancellation of the planned 2021 exhibition due to the impact of continued border uncertainty and extended lockdowns. The event will now return 23–26 July 2023 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Since the postponement back in June, the foodpro team has been working closely with the industry and monitoring the COVID-19 situation and multiple lockdowns across the nation. With the situation in Sydney showing no signs of improvement the difficult decision has been made to cancel foodpro 2021, scheduled to run 10–13 October at Sydney Showground.
foodpro aims to bring together Australia’s entire food manufacturing community, connecting exhibitors and visitors from across Australia. It’s important to sustain a high standard of event delivery, and without continued certainty around borders remaining open foodpro has made the tough call not to run this year.
Although disappointed in not being able to host an event in 2021, foodpro appreciates the continued support that has been received from exhibitors, partners, sponsors, speakers and suppliers. The event team is committed to reuniting the industry at foodpro in 2023, 23–26 July at Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
