New launch of WorldFood Moscow: what`s new in 2023?

WorldFood Moscow is an International Autumn Food and Drink Exhibition

The WorldFood Moscow exhibition annually gathers more than 1,000 food producers from Russia and foreign countries and more than 18,000 buyers from wholesale and retail chains and HoReCa enterprises on one site.

In 2023, the WorldFood Moscow exhibition will be held September 19-22 at Crocus Expo in halls 14 and 15 (pavilion 3).

Responding to the demand of the market, in 2023 WorldFood Moscow will equally present opportunities to enter two distribution channels at once — retail and HoReCa. Thanks to new special projects and activities, each manufacturer will be able to choose the format of product presentation that best suits its goals, and visitors will see and compare products in the real context of consumption.

The key advantage and value of the WorldFood Moscow 2023 exhibition is the coverage of all distribution channels for food products and the ability to comprehensively solve business problems on one site in just 4 days.


During all four days, the WorldFood Moscow 2023 exhibition will be accompanied by a business programme consisting of forums, analytical and practical sessions, plenary discussions and conferences.

Traditionally, within the framework of the WorldFood Moscow business programme, events are held in parallel at two venues. The first of them, Food Industry Leaders Forum, is dedicated to the exchange of experience and solutions to urgent problems facing retail, as well as presentations of fresh statistics and market trends with the participation of leading representatives of the industry.
