What tips do you have for first-time exhibitors (venue rules, customs, business etiquette, etc)?

In general, preparation is key. Preparing well in advance will help exhibitors get the best out of the show. The ideal place to start is with our website, which has details of everything you need to know about the location, accommodation, VISA regulations and how to get there.

We also offer a variety of digital tools designed to help exhibitors maximise the business opportunities on offer. For example, the Business Matchmaking Tool allows meetings to be arranged in advance, while the Supplier Finder enables users to plan routes to exhibitors that are a good fit for their businesses. We would also recommend downloading the Fi Europe App, which will provide updates about events throughout the show, for example.

What is the exhibitor profile? What is the visitor profile?  

Food ingredients contribute towards the flavoring, texture, color and preservation of processed and packaged food ensuring that they are nutritious, safe and affordable whilst meeting increasing consumer expectations. The Fi Europe & Ni exhibitors are producers of processed and raw ingredients, additives, flavors, natural, organic and synthetic ingredients. Our visitors are professionals and senior management from the food and beverage manufacturers involved in sourcing & procurement, research & development and the marketing & sales of finished food and beverage products.

Can you give us some results from the last event? How many visitors and exhibitors attended, and from how many different countries?

Fi Europe & Ni 2017 attracted more than 26,000 visitors from over 135 nations around the world. Attendees used the show to discover innovative new concepts and novel solutions from more than 1,600 exhibitor booths. In total, we recorded 50,000+ visits, and by the end of the three days, around 80 percent of exhibitors had already booked again for 2019 – I think that speaks for itself.

Know more about FI Europe, the unrivalled world leader for food industry

This year you are presenting two conferences at Fi Europe, can you give us some details about them?

The 2017 conference starts one day before the hustle and bustle of the show begins with the Future of Nutrition Summit. At Messeturm Frankfurt, we’ll be taking a peek at what nutrition will look like in 5–15 years and how it will influence the industry. For example, Mark Korzilius, founder at Farmers Cut, will look at the impact of rapid urbanization on health and nutrition; and Mariette Abrahams will discuss e-retailing and its influence on consumer relationships with food and health. 

Likewise, the Fi Conference also focuses on some of today’s biggest challenges. The 3-day programme will provide an inspiring and comprehensive agenda delivered by the industry’s thought leaders: product developers, market analysts and industry insiders alike will guide participants through the maze of “clean label and natural ingredients”, “food safety and regulatory compliance”, “reduction and reformulation”. Of course, we’ve allowed enough time for networking or getting up close and personal with the speakers.

What does this event represent to the German gastronomy and food culture?

The fact that we’ve returned to Frankfurt this year is testament to how important the country is for the ingredients industry: Germany is a global player and the biggest food and beverage market in Europe. With a strong tradition and culture in good, down-to-earth food and cooking, Germany represents stability – but with an open mind and a keen interest in new food trends, healthy nutrition and excellent taste and quality. 

Looking at the supermarket shelves, and within the concept of gastronomy, there is an exciting mix of traditional food that’s influenced by trends from across the globe. The Germans are eager to try new food styles and products, and are open to new taste sensations. Food start-ups, nutrition blogs and new concept restaurants are developing rapidly, while key influencers are creating new interpretations of food and nutrition concepts in very creative ways. As such, Fi Europe & Ni mirrors this combination of innovation, new trends and new flavours … but with a long tradition of reliable quality.
