Why Amsterdam?

The Netherlands is Europe’s main technology hub for alternative proteins and arguably one of the frontrunners in the global marketplace. It was a natural choice for The Future of Protein Production to establish an event that will flourish alongside this nascent industry.

The Netherlands already has a rich history in laying the global foundations of cellular agriculture, but is also generally a powerhouse in alternative protein and food-tech innovation.

The RAI Amsterdam is one of the largest exhibition and conference centers in the Netherlands, hosting most of the international trade fairs, exhibitions, and congresses held in Amsterdam.
