VeggieWorld Köln – VeggieWorld- The trade fair for a vegan lifestyle

Veggie World

VeggieWorld started in Wiesbaden in 2011 with 21 exhibitors and has been a success story from day one. The exhibition hall was overrun by visitors and the news and daily topics reported.

Since the takeover of Wellfairs in November 2014, the topic of expansion has been a top priority. In 2016, Wellfairs already organized 9 trade fairs at 8 locations in 4 countries.

From 2017 there will be 6 trade fairs in Germany and 10 more in other European countries.

gourmet festivals

The Gourmet Festival in Düsseldorf was held for the first time in 2011 at the racecourse in Düsseldorf. With the move to Düsseldorf's world-famous luxury mile, the Königsallee, the Gourmet Festival Düsseldorf has grown in size and importance year after year. With more than 200 exhibitors, almost the entire Königsallee is occupied on both sides and attracts more than 40,000 people in three days every year.

Since 2015 we have also been organizing the Festival of Delights on the forecourt of the Chocolate Museum in Cologne, directly on the Rhine.
