Amsterdam, 21 September 2020:Fi Europe co-located with Hi Europe hasannounced they are postponing the live event to 2021 and are transitioning tovirtual for their 2020 event. Over recent weeks and months, the Fi Europe team hasbeen in discussions with key industry stakeholders and partners to stay abreast ofthe challenges facing the F&B industry due to COVID-19. While the event was set totake place this December with Informa’s AllSecure guidelines incorporating thehighest standards of hygiene and cleanliness, the decision to postpone the live eventand transition to virtual was taken as a result of the global nature of the event.
Fi Europe co-located with Hi Europe is a truly international event which bringstogether key industry players from all over the world. Given international travel isonly returning gradually, stakeholders and partners felt it was difficult to ensure thesame level of participation typically expected at the live event, and thus the FiEurope team made the difficult decision to transition to a virtual format in 2020, withthe expectation that they will return to a best-in-class physical event in 2021.
For 2020, the Fi Europe team are transforming Europe’s largest F&B exhibition into aunique digital experience and expo. Fi Europe CONNECT 2020 is a virtual eventdesigned to give the F&B community access to the global F&B ingredients industry,tools and collaboration opportunities they require to meet their business objectives.
