From 13 to 15 February 2020, the Parc des Expositions de Caen (Caen Exhibition Centre) will be hosting CidrExpo, the leading French trade fair for cider producers from all over the world. Co-organised by Caen Événements, the show aims to promote excellence in the cider industry by bringing together producers, traders and suppliers.

The international cider sector gets together in Caen

For this inaugural event, more than 10 countries will be represented by the hundred or so producers exhibiting at the event. Buyers will be able to meet the producers directly and address key topics and issues in the sector through conferences, master classes and technical round tables. They will also be able to learn about the characteristics of different apples and areas in France and around the world, and get an insight into matching different dishes and ciders by participating in tasting workshops.

The high standards, imagination and talent of the producers have given birth to a wide variety of products. From draught cider to gourmet ciders and flavoured ciders, every type of product will be presented at CidrExpo. 

The cider bar, the focal point of CidrExpo

Located in the heart of the exhibition, the Cider Bar will give visitors the opportunity to taste all the various ciders proposed by the exhibitors at the show. This will enable trade professionals to have an overall view of the offer, so they may then decide which stands they wish to visit in particular. In addition, a special discovery package will be available for members of the general public. This fun, educational approach will allow them to learn about all the different cider products.

CidrExpo is reserved exclusively for professionals on 13 and 14 February. The general public will be able to enjoy the event on 15 February.
