Euro Fed Lipid Newsletter March 2010: oils+fats switches to two-year cycle

Dear Readers,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I am the Exhibition Group Director of Business Unit IV at Messe München GmbH. As such, I am responsible for various trade fairs including drinktec, the International Trade Fair for Beverage and Liquid Food Technology. Since the beginning of the year, my Team has also been responsible for the oils+fats. In 2009, both of these fairs were held at the same time here at the Trade Fair Centre. Perhaps you had an opportunity to stop by drinktec when you attended the oils+fats.
Since then, we -the new oils+fats Team- have taken advantage of every opportunity to attend events, expand our knowledge of the oils and fats industry and exchange ideas and information with industry representatives. We must act quickly to set the course for the future of oils+fats. In the future, oils+fats will be held every two years. We came to this decision by mutual agreement and in close conjunction with industry representatives. We are convinced that this is the right decision.
In concrete terms, this means that the next oils+fats will take place at the M,O,C, Event Center in Munich-Freimann from October 5-7, 2011. Switching to a two-year cycle also means it will be easier for us to coordinate the dates of other important industry events in the United States, Asia and South America, which also take place every two years. As a result, this decision is in the best interest of the entire industry and gives suppliers and manufacturers the best prerequisites for your business!
Please see for more details.
