Milan, May 9, 2022 - Fiera Milano teamed up to land in North America with its two leading events to promote "world-to-world" exchange with one of the most important global markets for the industries of Food and professional hospitality: TUTTOFOOD, the B2B event for the agro-food ecosystem (from May 8 to 11, 2023 at fieramilano) and HostMilano, the main exhibition for the out-of-home sector (also at fieramilano, from October 13 to 17, 2023).

Both events have been present in these markets for several years and this spring will be involved in the region's two main B2B events dedicated to food equipment and out-of-home. The goal is to support the business of operators in this strategic market by creating a network with trade associations and meeting companies, both as exhibitors and visitors, during the most important moments of encounter on the territory.
