The Salon International de l’alimentation (SIAL) boasted record numbers during its show earlier this month at the Palais des Congres de Montreal.
The 20,000 square foot tradeshow floor housed 767 exhibitors and brands from 43 different countries. In early February Xavier Poncin, executive director of the show, announced an additional 15,000 square feet of exhibition space had been made available to account for its anticipated growth.
