SIAL Canada 2024: Where Business, Food Innovation, and the Future Converge

SIAL Canada returns to Montreal, marking its comeback to the vibrant city where leaders of the agri-food industry will convene from May 15th to 17th at the Palais des Congrès. Featuring a lineup of over 1000 exhibitors and expected attendance of more than 20,000 professionals, SIAL Canada's "ONE-STOP-SHOP" approach reaffirms its status as North America's premier agri-food business accelerator. It's an event industry insiders can't afford to miss, offering insights into the ever-evolving landscape of food revolutions.

At its core, SIAL Canada 2024 embodies food innovation, strategic networking, and forward-thinking. It's an exceptional opportunity for stakeholders to engage in meaningful discourse, forge alliances, and explore avenues for sustainable growth and development within the industry.

With less than two months until the exhibition, the overwhelming response to our return to Montreal has led to securing two floors at the Palais des Congrès, making this edition the largest SIAL Canada event in the city's history. It's evident that industry players are eager to engage and make deals.

In a dynamic of adaptation and market responsiveness, we are rebranding our cheese section as SIAL Dairy, an initiative that underscores our commitment to promoting excellence across all facets of this sector. To celebrate this launch, we are introducing a new SIAL competition, the Best Canadian Cheesemonger Competition, chaired by the renowned master cheesemonger, Yannick Achim. This biennial competition will become a highlight of our Montreal editions, alternating with the International Cheese Competition, which will continue to shine in our odd-numbered years in Toronto. Join us on May 15th on the Dairy sector stage, booth 2647, to assist to this incredible competition!
