1002 exhibitors from 55 countries met around 50,000 trade visitors from 169 countries at drinktec 2022 in Munich. Even if the bare figures thus indicate a significant decline compared to drinktec 2017 - it was an outstanding trade fair!
VLB Berlin was, of course, also present and was able to welcome numerous members, customers, alumni, friends and many new contacts at the stand in Hall A6, which is located close to the main entrance. Particularly striking was the high proportion of international trade visitors: with the exception of Russia and China, all the major beer and beverage nations from South America, the USA, Asia, Africa and Europe were represented.
"After the three-year break, it was an excellent trade show for us with many good discussions. In particular, the current very difficult economic environment generated a lot of discussion," said VLB Managing Director Dr. Josef Fontaine.
The next drinktec is scheduled for fall 2025. Next year, Brau Beviale will open its exhibition halls in Nuremberg, Germany, again from November 28-30, 2023.
