Fi North America: Leading platform for F&B ingredients is launched in the US
Partnering with SupplySide West, the co-located trade shows create the most comprehensive health, nutrition and food business opportunities
Phoenix, AZ (USA) /Amsterdam (NL),: With a new concept, Informa brings the world´s most successful trade show for food and beverage ingredients to the US. Co-located with SupplySide West, the first edition of Fi North America will take place from 17 to 18 October 2019 at the Mandala Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas. Visitors to the show are now able to broaden their access to top exhibitors from the health, nutrition and supplement arenas, and to leading suppliers of ingredients for the food and beverage industries, as well as packaging and processing solutions. While SupplySide West promises a full week of content for industry professionals, Fi North America will be located at the heart of the exhibition area for two days.
With more than 1,300 exhibitors presenting their innovations at both shows, and over 17,000 professional visitors expected, the co-located events celebrate their premiere in a highly creative and professional environment. Fi North America complements the event by offering a focused buying opportunity surrounding the latest innovations for the food and beverage industries. Natural colours, flavours and sweeteners, clean label solutions, on-trend healthy ingredients, organic and nonGMO alternatives, as well as co-packing and contract manufacturing services, are just a few examples of the scope of the new show.
Exhibitors, including leading international players such as Jungbunzlauer, Ingredia, ADM, Sensient and FONA International, will benefit from a visitor range made up of decision-makers from a wide array of business sectors. Half of them are expected to hold positions in general management and product development. As well as premium business and networking opportunities, the shows also offer a high-quality education platform: Event organizer Informa has set up more than 140 hours of presentations, workshops and summits to be held by some of the industry´s top experts.
Julien Bonvallet, Brand Director Fi North America, says: “Launching the Food ingredients brand in the US means that we have successfully completed a unique offer to the industry. Combining our strength with the prestigious SupplySide West event will create a strong platform for our exhibitors and visitors to accelerate their business in North America.” Jon Benninger, Vice President of Health & Nutrition at Informa, adds: “Fi North America, hand in hand with SupplySide West, offers a onestop opportunity for discovering ingredients and solutions, sourcing from leading suppliers around the world, gaining insight into market opportunities, and ensuring compliance with regulatory requirements and consumer expectations.”
Tickets for SupplySide West and Fi North America are now available online and valid for both shows. Until 21 August, visitors can enjoy early bird prices.
