After two years of virtual events due to the pandemic, the Americas Food and Beverage Show returns to on-site events with around 300 exhibiting companies, and 375 exhibition stands for natural products, agricultural products, meats, seafood, and frozen foods. It will take place at the Miami Beach Convention Center from September 12 to 13. The Authority for the Attraction of Investments and Promotion of Exports (PROPANAMA) will participate for the first time, bringing 17 Panamanian exporting companies to show their products to potential buyers.
Panama will show its country offer, accompanying a food producer group conformed by the following companies: Panama Blue Spring Water, Productos Lux S.A., Magic Brewery S.A., Carta Vieja, Q Cheff, Parmigiana, Sista-Natural Pepper Sauced, H.H. Products, Panama Gourmet Foods, Obleas La Original, Frutik’s Panama, Secrets of Panama, Fresh Co. and Tio Ivan.
The Panamanian authority will also hold meetings with the World Trade Center (WTC) and suppliers and explore opportunities with the Panamanian Chamber of Commerce in Miami, field visits to supermarket chains, and international promotion with the media.
PROPANAMA will develop matchmaking activities between exporters and buyers, as well as field visits to supermarket chains and on-site product tastings.
The trade mission will also be used to sign a Memorandum of Understanding with the World Trade Center of Miami, which annually attracts more than 2,000 companies interested in doing business in Miami.
The last on-site edition of the Americas Food and Beverage Show was in 2018, where buyers, suppliers, and industry experts from the Americas and the Caribbean met. Its success has drawn participants’ attention from many regions, including China, Japan, and the Middle East.
PROPANAMA develops and implements strategies to attract investment and promote exports that contribute to the economic and social development of the country.
