A collaboration agreement was signed today between IFEMA and the World Olive Oil Exhibition for the celebration of its next edition, to be held at Feria de Madrid on 21 and 22 March

The WOOE will once again become a forum for debate and analysis within the industry, offering a programme of conferences and master tasting sessions led by speakers of international prestige.

The collaboration agreement between IFEMA and the World Olive Oil Exhibition was renewed today, paving the way for the next edition of this trade fair, which will be held at Feria de Madrid on 21 and 22 March.  Eduardo López-Puertas, General Manager of IFEMA, Otilia Romero de Condés, CEO of the WOOE, and José Luis Murcia, Executive Director of the WOOE, have signed an agreement so that IFEMA will once again host the world’s biggest fair entirely devoted to the olive oil sector.

The World Olive Oil Exhibition expects to bring together 200 oil mills and olive oil producers, along with more than 3,000 professionals, buyers, catering entrepreneurs, distributors, and business owners of more than 30 different nationalities, hailing from the United Arab Emirates, Japan, China, the United Kingdom, Italy and the US, amongst other countries.

 WOOE will be the international olive oil industry's leading hub for reinvigorating their businesses, opening up new markets, and closing some the most important deals of the year.  Participants will become privy to the latest trends and key aspects of this dynamic market, as well as the developments that can be expected in its immediate future.

 This is possible thanks to one of the olive oil industry’s most ambitious programmes of conferences and tasting sessions. The 2018 programme will feature internationally renowned speakers such as:  Abdellatif Ghedira, General Manager of the International Olive Council (Tunisia); María Reyes, Director of KeHe Distribución (USA); David Neuman, CEO of GAEA North America (USA); Luigi Caricato, CEO of the media outlet OlioOfficcina (Italy); Javier Perona, researcher at CSIC (Spain); Luis Jesús García Lomas, General Manager of Fundación Caja Rural (Spain); José Luis González González, Head of the Department of Quality, Development, and Promotion of the Canary Islands Food Quality Institute (Spain), and Chokri Bayoudh, Director of the National Olive Oil Office (Tunisia).
