PRESS RELEASE - DETROP - ARTOZYMA 2016
TIF-Helexpo is planning to strengthen and further highlight the extroverted sector of foodstuffs, holding the 26th DETROP BOUTIQUE from 26 to 29 February 2016 concurrently with the 7th ARTOZYMA at Thessaloniki International Exhibition Centre.
The ARTOZYMA International Exhibition for Bakery, Confectionery, Machinery, Raw Materials, Equipment & Readymade Products is once again being held every two years in order to meet the increasing needs of domestic bakery and confectionery enterprises, so that they can open channels of cooperation with neighbouring Balkan countries.
ARTOZYMA will utilise the dynamism of DETROP, which was held concurrently with OENOS from 26 February to 1 March 2015 and achieved a 23% increase in the total number of visitors and a 40% increase in the number of foreign trade visitors. The DETROP-OENOS events are supported by agencies of the food-beverage sector, such as the Wine Producers' Association of the Northern Greece Vineyard (ENOAVE) and the Association of Overseas Greek Food & Drinks Importers (SELETROPE).
In this framework and as was the case with DETROP, great emphasis will be placed on attracting foreign exhibitors and trade visitors, while the medium-term goal is for ARTOZYMA to become established as the largest exhibition of the sector in South-East Europe.
Thus, the exhibition duo of DETROP BOUTIQUE and ARTOZYMA, to be held in 2016, will cover the needs of developing trade relations and partnerships with enterprises both from the broader region and of the domestic market.
Furthermore, the two exhibitions will serve as gastronomic festivals for the city of Thessaloniki; for this purpose, the administration of TIF-Helexpo has already contact city agencies in order to organise a number of parallel events focusing on cooking, confectionery and baking.
ARTOZYMA will be held with the support of the Hellenic Federation of Bakers, Thessaloniki Bakers’ Union and Thessaloniki Guild of Shop Owners and Confectioners.
