First Dutch halal convention next year

First Dutch halal convention next year

Eindhoven will host the first Dutch halal convention next year. According to the organizers, the Netherlands are the perfect location for a European convention of this type.

Important market

The Halal Expo Europe will take place on the 15th and 16th of April in the Beursgebouw in Eindhoven with attention to food, cosmetics and the financial sector. Seminars, lectures and panels will be held by more than 100 exhibitors from all across the world.

 

"With more than 50 million Muslims, Europe is an important market for halal manufacturers. Partially supported by the huge spending power of the European Muslim community, the European halal branch is worth some 70 billion euro. The Netherlands not only has 850,000 Muslims, but is also located centrally and strategically. That way, it is the ideal location to bring together people from the halal industry all across the world", the organizers explain their decision to move to Eindhoven.
