This year’s Fi Europe exhibition proved once again that it is the trusted meeting place for the global food and beverage ingredients industry. Celebrating its on-site debut at Paris Expo Porte de Versailles and framed by an extensive online event, the show saw attendance figures jump from 13,000 online and in person in 2021 to 21,881 to date – and counting. The top 3 countries in attendance were France, Netherlands and Germany, with Italy, UK, Spain, Belgium, Poland, USA and Denmark completing the top 10 list. Visitors were able to meet with and explore opportunities from 934 exhibitors – almost one third up on 2021.
Said Julien Bonvallet, Food Group Brand Director, Informa Markets: “We’re thrilled with the success of Fi Europe 2022 in Paris and online, with high-quality visitors and exhibitors showcasing pathbreaking solutions and products. It’s extremely heartening to see the entire F&B industry come together, build new business relationships, and share ideas and expert insights.”
Show highlights included live presentations to the winners of the Fi Europe Innovation Awards and the Startup Innovation Challenge; the New Product Zone, showcasing the latest ideas from leading industry players, and the Innovation Hub, where keynote speakers explored challenges and opportunities as well as sustainability and future-proof solutions.
Fi Europe will return to Messe Frankfurt, Germany, from 28 – 30 November 2023, and online to audiences around the world from 20 – 30 November 2023. For more visit figlobal.com/fieurope
