With Fi Europe Connect, show organizer Informa Markets has created a platform for exhibitors and participants to connect, do business and learn from F&B industry experts virtually. The digital event from 23 November to 4 December 2020 focuses on networking, lead generation and education for the international ingredients industry. At a time when the Covid-19 outbreak has resulted in unprecedented challenges, Fi Europe Connect bridges the gap created by the postponement of the industry’s leading live event, Fi Europe co-located with Hi Europe.
The platform is based on detailed visitor and exhibitor profiles. Thus, more than 8,000 participants expected by Informa Markets can search for interesting companies and their product portfolios, application areas, information videos and contacts. Furthermore, an AI-controlled algorithm based on attendee profiles offers recommendations for suppliers and manufacturers with matching profiles. For matches created, appointments can be arranged via Fi Europe Connect or held directly on the platform by chat or video conference function.
An exhibitor list with extensive filter functions provides an overview of the 300+ companies that will be exhibiting at Fi Europe Connect. In addition, the event programme is dedicated to a different trending topic or application area each day, including “Plant-based”, “Health & Wellbeing”, “Taste & Texture” and “Regulatory”. More than 116 panel discussions, live events and webinars will be supplemented by digital offerings such as the “Exhibitor Showcase Sessions”, in which exhibitors will explain their solutions in more detail, and daily “Speed Networking.”
