After the highly praised 50th anniversary edition of ISM Cologne the international sweets industry is preparing for the upcoming ISM 2021, scheduled from 31 January to 3 February. In 2020 the trade show for sweets and snacks brought to Messe Cologne 1774 exhibitors from 76 countries, registering a 7.5% growth. A total of 87.5% of the exhibiting companies were foreign. Their products attracted approximately 37,000 professional visitors from 148 countries. As always, the presence of world-leading large and mid-sized companies at ISM Cologne was prominent, and became one of the reasons for the event to receive over 95% recommendation rate.
