The Gourmet Gallery – Where pleasure meets business
The Gourmet Gallery will take place in Hall 3.1 in Frankfurt, Germany during the Frankfurt Book Fair between 10 October and 15 October 2018. The program will bring together aficionados and innovative companies from the food and publishing industries. Visitors will get a chance to discover new tastes, trend-setting business concepts and the latest news in nutrition at the exhibition. Visitors to the Gourmet Gallery can find inspiration in cookbooks from all around the world.

The exhibition is close to Show Kitchen, which attracts many visitors at Frankfurt. Every year attendees to the Gourmet Gallery find something from the chefs and their culinary compositions to get them excited.

The Gourmet Gallery in short
Healthy living: In a health-concious world, the quality of food matters more than the quantity of food. Consuming healthy food while enjoying it has become a prime focus. The Gourmet Gallery offers a chance to its visitors to discover more about a healthy way of life.

TV streaming, social media and apps: In order to achieve high ratings in today’s competitive environment, cooking shows and enthusiasts use social channels and digital applications as well as to reach out to like-minded people. Similarly, the Gourmet Gallery is also a place to find innovative concepts in nutrition.

Country image promotion: Every region is inextricably linked to its distinctive local cuisine. Visitors to the Gourmet Gallery at Frankfurter Buchmesse will discover a wide variety of regional culinary delights.

World Cookbook Fair in Frankfurt: In cooperation with Gourmand International, the Gourmet Gallery offers cookbook enthusiasts an array of books on cooking and pleasure from all over the world.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Indian Printer and Publisher’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
