Canada and Saudi Arabia will be the guest importing markets at this year's event, due to their excellent performance in the importing of fruit and vegetables from the EU over recent years. This action will encourage trade relations between these two markets and the European Union, accompanied by a full programme of round tables (World Fresh Forum), guided tours and B2B sessions. Alongside this initiative, which began at the last edition, Fruit Attraction will again make a significant investment in the International Guest Programme, which will attract 1,000 retail purchasing managers, importers and wholesalers from around the world. In the same vein, another initiative will be the implementation of a global campaign to attract professional visitors as part of the Fresh Produce Digital Network Campaign.
