It is a main venue for American, Middle Eastern, and African suppliers to penetrate the European market. SIAL Paris 2020 was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In the 2018, the latest edition of SIAL Paris, the show included more than 7,200 exhibitors (87% international) from 119 countries and 310,000 visitors (73% of whom were international visitors from nearly 200 countries).
