Ingredients show Fi & Hi Europe is set to attract over 20,000 attendees from more than 135 countries around the world when it returns to France from 6-8 December at the Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. Key exhibitors attending include ADM, Beneo, Brenntag, Cargill, DSM, and Ingredion.
Over 1,200 exhibitors will attend both in person and virtually, covering a wide variety of live and on-demand content, as well as data-driven matchmaking options. Each exhibitor will have an online profile allowing them to network with others ahead of the event and gather leads using the event’s lead scanning system.
The online event begins 28th Nov covering industry topics such as plant-based, health & wellbeing and reformulation, as well as category updates on key trending segments like bakery and snacks, dairy & dairy alternatives, and sustainability.
The physical show includes the Innovation Hub, the New Product Zone in collaboration with Innova Market Insights, and the Fi Europe Innovation Awards. The new Sustainability Hub will focus on sustainable food solutions from farm to fork, food waste, circular economy, regenerative agriculture and more.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming thousands of visitors and exhibitors from around the world to an event which all those involved in the ingredients industry simply cannot afford to miss,” says Julien Bonvallet, Brand Director at Informa Markets. “After many months of disruption and uncertainty, there’s a strong aspiration for meeting in person again, and so the excitement is already gathering pace. But for those who would prefer to join online, sophisticated technology means our online event will merge seamlessly with the in-person show.
Julien adds: “I am so excited that Fi & Hi Europe will once again open its doors in Paris – this time at an impressive new venue. Bringing the world of food and beverage ingredients together has always been our main purpose, and our entire team is looking forward to providing the perfect platform for both visitors and exhibitors to source, connect and innovate.”
