Specialist markets and industries find success when the right people - buyers, sellers, decision makers - come together to discover the latest products, understand trends, meet new customers, understand what buyers want and do business.

Informa Markets helps specialist markets to innovate and grow by enabling businesses to connect with customers, learn and trade.

Bringing specialist markets to life 

We organise over 500 large-scale branded and transaction-oriented events in 14 specialist markets. Discover all the markets we serve and keep up with our latest events. 

Informa AllSecure is Informa’s approach to enhanced health and safety standards at our events following COVID-19

Informa has collaborated with association partners including UFI, AEO and SISO, peers including Reed Exhibitions and Clarion, venues, suppliers, contractors and health, government and local authorities to develop industry-wide All Secure standards that raise the bar on safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organised event experiences.

Informa AllSecure is how these standards are being adopted in our business.

It means that when exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and attendees come to our events, they can connect, learn, know more and do more business, effectively, safely and with confidence.

All Informa events will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events around the world, irrespective of format or location, will follow the ten Informa AllSecure priority commitments below.

Wherever applicable and possible, our events will also apply the fuller range of standards and guidelines described in the Informa AllSecure Guidebook.

Learn more about trends in three of the markets we serve, written by some of the Informa Markets colleagues who work most closely with customers in these communities.

Health & Nutrition | Growing Like a Weed

Bill Giebler, New Hope, Informa Markets

It’s difficult to have a conversation in today’s dietary supplement industry without hemp/cannabidiol (CBD) coming up. Simply, this nonhigh-inducing, cannabis-derived cousin of marijuana is the biggest news our industry has ever seen. And that’s not hyperbole.
