“That was a busy show! You shouldn't forget that not too long ago, we came out of a period where trade shows were done virtually. Last year, we were just happy to be back. This year we saw growth and a very high percentage of new and extra visitors."

René Berendse, Marketing Associate Director Enablement & Operations, Cargill

“We had a very successful show, with lots of attendees coming to our booth and we were almost swamped on the first two days. The third day was a bit quieter, but that was also nice because we could connect with the students who attended the Future Food Leaders Programme.”

Silke Ullmann, Manager Nutrition Communication at BENEO

“It was a great trade show for us with many visitors showing huge interest in our latest product that we launched here. Overall, we were able to generate many interesting leads at this year’s show.”

Oliver Wolf, Marketing EMEA, Gelita

Answers to some of the most common queries
Can I exhibit in the in-person event only?

No, Fi Europe as of this year continues as an in-person event, enhanced by our digitally-enabled event.

There is however the possibility to participate in the digital event only.

Why will Fi Europe continue to be enhanced with a digital event?

Each aspect of Fi Europe comes with unique benefits:

  • Digital: Connect with new clients and establish a relationship before meeting them onsite. You can reach a wider global audience, especially those attendees who cannot travel, share your content, and create brand awareness on the platform.
  • In-Person: Avoid multiple trips to visit your clients, close deals onsite with the trust of the face-to-face element, offer a sensory experience through your ingredients, be where your peers are.

Can I upgrade my event package?

Yes, it is always possible to upgrade later and in addition can purchase several sponsorship items increasing ROI as well. Please speak with your account manager.

Can you explain how networking works on the event platform?

Connections and meetings are a core element of a successful event experience.

  • Connect, chat & video call with Attendees Browse the attendee list and use the filters to quickly find the most relevant attendees for you and your company. You can send connection requests and chat instantly. Once the connection request is accepted you will be able to video call through the platform outside of meeting times!

  • Incoming Requests: Visitors can reach out to you directly to connect. They will be able to send your company or your team members meeting requests. All meetings incl their status can be viewed in your Exhibitor Center under “Meetings”. Please note we strongly advise you to not just wait for incoming requests but be proactive towards visitors.
  • Suggested Matches: Our matchmaking engine uses the information you have entered on your profile when registering and makes suggestions of attendees that might be relevant to you. You can find these suggestions at the top of the attendee list.
  • Other Networking Opportunities: Participate in the extensive content programme during the event where you can chat with other attendees and pose questions to the speakers.
