An audience of sector operators only, professionals who work in the food & beverage, retail & technology and interior and exterior furnishings of the out of home sector.

Essentiality, harmony and freshness for the new visual identity of Cosmofood. The focal point of the new logo is its letter ´O´ to represent a place of exchange, comparison and business, for a sign that refers to a table with seated people, a cloche or a hotel bell. In the visual, modularity creates an intuitive and essential decorative pattern, a texture that well interprets the characteristics of the territory in which Cosmofood takes place, historically capable of assimilating different inputs, even far from its own nature, and processing them with sagacity, elegance and simplicity.

At the center of the exhibition format that will embrace the entire modern and functional Pavilion 7 of the Vicenza Expo Centre will be concrete business opportunities both for the exhibitors who are protagonists of Cosmofood 2023 and for professional visitors, in constant networking and exchange.
