After the recent announcement that the construction trade show Construmat would have a Chinese edition starting in 2012, now it seems that the food trade show Alimentaria can be the next one to travel to China also in 2012. Fira de Barcelona‘s director, Mr. José Luis Bonet, has made this announcement in the 15th Meeting of Directors of Food and Drink Industries that was organized by IESE. This is a new step to the desired goal of internationalizing the events organized by Fira Barcelona, that apart from China is also aiming at other markets such as Brazil, Morocco, Russia and other eastern european countries. Temptative dates for the food trade show are between June and September and will possibily be organized in Beijing in cooperation with a local partner.
