Regarding visiting countries: China will be one of the key markets at the fair, thanks to the agreement, which has been signed between the World Olive Oil Exhibition and the Orient Group, the leading Spanish business group specialized in providing services to the Chinese community residing in Spain. Thanks to this collaboration, the WOOE will host a sizeable delegation of Chinese businessmen living in Spain as well as Chinese olive oil businessmen who will visit Madrid exclusively in order to attend this trade fair, alongside various Chinese media outlets.

The United States will also be one of the key countries at the 2017 WOOE; thanks to the participation of more than 20 businessmen who will visit for the first time and who come from different parts of the USA: Boston, Chicago, NYC and, of course, California. For the 2017 WOOE, Californian olive oils will open the tasting sessions’ program, and they will be presented by the prestigious expert, Alexandra Kicenik Devarenne, consultant and co-founder of Extra Virgin Alliance. This will be a unique opportunity to discover the olive oil wealth of this State in what is possibly the first official tasting session of Californian olive oil in Europe.

In addition to the Chinese and American delegations of businessmen, the 2017 WOOE will also gather other equally interesting markets for those producers who would like to open new export routes: Dubai, India, Oman, Lebanon, Iran, United Kingdom and Japan; as well as other already more well-known markets such as Italy and Greece, which will also be widely represented.
