This year, Fi Europe combined with Hi Europe will be a combination of online and in-person elements. The online event runs from 22 November – 2 December 2021, and the in-person event runs from 30 November – 2 December in Frankfurt, Germany. Below are frequently asked questions about the event:
Each aspect of Fi Europe comes with unique benefits:
We expect that it will be in the beginning of September. We remain confident that with the progress of the vaccination campaigns and gradual reopening of events receiving public, we should not be forced to cancel the event. Should anything indicate otherwise, we will make sure to update you and give you as much notice as possible.
If you are prevented from participating in the 2021 event as a direct result of government-imposed travel restrictions and/ or quarantine conditions still in place on October 15th that prohibit persons in general from:
a) leaving the territory in which you are based
b) leaving the territory in which the 2021 event is due to take place and/or
c) travelling from the territory in which you are based to the territory in which the 2021 event is due to take place, the terms & conditions in the exhibitor contract shall apply – please refer to your contract.
If the circumstances mentioned above apply, Customer shall be entitled to:
a) Apply any money paid towards FiE 2021 towards future spend with Informa in connection with Customer’s participation in Food Ingredients Europe 2022, which shall be contracted separately (and Customer acknowledges that, depending on the package selected by Customer, further fees may be payable in connection with Customer’s participation in Food Ingredients Europe 2022);
b) Refunded to Customer.
We will follow the German authority guidelines at the time of the event. At this moment it is not clear if that is required in November. We will keep everyone updated if testing is required to attend the event. With the EU’s Digital Green Certificate initiative in progress and plans to be finalised by the summer, these details will be clear by then.
Crowd Density Modelling calculations have been done to determine how many attendees can be in the halls at one single point in time. The number of attendees that can enter the venue depends on the size of the event and the space available. Fi Europe has a large enough space to accommodate all historic number of attendees.
Informa AllSecure is the approach we are taking to enhancing the health and safety standards in place at Informa events as a result of COVID-19. The standards and practices that make up Informa AllSecure are designed to provide confidence that at every Informa event, we are striving to provide the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness, and quality. Not all the recommendations within the Informa AllSecure Standard will be practical or applicable for every event team to employ. Always check with your dedicated sales executive or customer service team whether a particular measure will be in place before you communicate it to your customer base.
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, and will follow the Informa AllSecure 10 priority commitments.
As part of our transition towards more digitalisation and in a Covidimpacted environment, we are transitioning to a contactless registration with online badges. All attendees will be required to pre-register online and will receive an electronic badge. No inperson registration onsite will be possible.
