Cibus Tec: inspiring innovation in food and beverage technologies 

Cibus Tec is a complete food and beverage technologies exhibition, point of reference for innovations  and trends. An immersive experience of cutting-edge solutions, ingegnous workshops, demonstrations,  built with the sharing of ideas with the Food and FoodTec industries.

What makes Cibus Tec unique? It’s location! Cibus Tec has always been taking place in Parma, the Italian Food and FoodTec Valley where passion for quality food has deep roots and links with the best technologies and know-how. 

The roots of Cibus Tec are to be found in the historic Tecnoconserve exhibition, which since its founding in 1939, has promoted the economic and technological development of the food industry and suppliers of processing and packaging solutions. 

During this long history, Cibus Tec has built its own exhibition leadership in the processing and packaging technologies for vegetables, fruit, milk and dairy products. The strong renewal of the last decade and the recent strategic agreement with Koelnmesse (organizers of Anuga, Anuga FoodTec, Ism and Prosweets Cologne) have led Cibus Tec to play a leading role among the international industry events and to be considered by the market as the only exhbition in Italy able to offer the full range of technologies for the food and beverage industry. 
Cibus Tec is organized by Koeln Parma Exhibitions, the joint venture established in 2015 between Fiere di Parma S.p.A. and Koelnmesse GmbH. 


A four hundred thousand sqm exhibition complex in the heart of the productive districts of Northern and Central Italy: this is the identity card of Fiere di Parma. A business, within the Italian trade fairs organizers landscape, committed to partner with companies wishing to fulfill their expectations with solutions combining tradition and innovation. 

The fruitful marriage between trade fair expertise and innovative ideas has led to the establishment of leading events such as Cibus, which has long supported and promoted Made in Italy food sector across the world; Cibus Tec, a privileged showcase for food processing and packaging machinery; Mercanteinfiera and Gotha, the prodigious intuitions that over the years have succeeded to give dignity back to the antique sector as well as a professional dimension, setting trends, launching new lifestyles and inventing modern antiques and vintage. 

Furthermore, thanks to the recent agreement signed between Fiere di Parma and Fiera Milano, Tuttofood has also become part, together with Cibus, of the event platform dedicated to food and beverage industry, which will see harmonized management by the two companies
