In addition to the presence exhibition, Anuga 2021 offers exhibitors and visitors the digital platform Anuga @home. The hybrid approach enables visitors from all over the world, who are unable to travel to the fair, to discover attractive trade fair profiles and products and to get in touch with their contacts via innovative channels. After all, whether at the trade show or in everyday business, a company's success is based on three fundamental building blocks: Inspiration, exchange and business. Where these aspects currently fall short, Anuga @home now opens up additional opportunities. Comprehensive functions make it easy to reach more potential customers, experience trends and presentations on demand, and make valuable contacts completely independent of where you are.
