SET Canada is North America’s best show when it comes to equipment and technology that’s aimed at: retail professionals (lien vers la partie set mag juste en-dessous), the food-processing industry (lien vers la partie set emballage juste en-dessous), and the food-service industry (lien vers la partie set mag juste en-dessous). It is no less than the singular business event in Canada when it comes to helping professionals to meet clients and partners, to promote their services, and to keep abreast of the industry’s latest technologies.
SET Canada has shown strong growth, attracting more than 100 exhibitors and nearly 13,000 visitors, 79% of which stated that they were satisfied with the event.
Furthermore, SET Canada has an undeniable strategic advantage since it takes places in the same place and at the same time as SIAL Canada (12,759 visitors and 544 exhibitors from 36 countries). SET Canada also directly benefits from the world-famous SIAL Group name, an organisation that has a presence on 4 continents (Paris, Montreal/Toronto, Shanghai, São Paulo and Abu Dhabi) and whose shows accounts for more than 7,500 exhibitors and 200,000 visitors from 200 countries.
SET Canada belongs to the Comexposium network, the world’s 2nd largest organiser of high-profile shows with more than 150 large-scale annual events.
In 2005, SET Canada was created with the intent of meeting the needs of food-industry professionals in terms of equipment and technology, both of which are major determining factors in their competitiveness in what is already a competitive market.
In 2010, SET Canada adapted to changes in the industry by providing deeper content that better met the needs of new economic realities:
- sectorization of retail (SET MAG) and food service (SET HRI), as well as, in 2011, the packaging and processing industry (SET PACKAGING);
- creation of experts’paths “traceability”, “techno-SET”, “securi-SET”, and now, in 2012: “eco-set”;
- the addition of conferences led by well-known professionals.
Expo Canada France Inc. (of the Comexposium network) is responsible for the organisation of SET Canada at the same time and in the same location as SIAL Canada.
