Recommend Program

Programa Recomienda

Would you like your top clients to visit you at Alimentaria 2018?

As an exhibitor at the show, through the Recommend Program you have the opportunity to recommend your top clients to the organisers for inclusion in the Hosted Buyer and/or VIP Buyer programmes.

Don't miss this opportunity! Go to the Exhibitors' Area, click on the ‘Business Opportunities' Section, and recommend your top contacts to be sent an invitation in your name for preferential access to the show.

The Organisers will study the suggested companies and confirm those that meet the criteria determined in the corresponding programme, which include: professional profiles, economic details of the company (e.g. volume of imports and purchases), products of interest, geographical region, places available and budgetary restrictions.
