Vitafoods Europe, the global nutraceutical event, has announced a major shake-up of its Education Programme, which will enable delegates to tailor their experience to their own business objectives.
In 2017, delegates will be given the opportunity to pick and choose from three distinct platforms and a range of topic-specific sessions, allowing them to benefit from the content that is most relevant to them.
The changes are based on feedback from the 2016 event, which was the biggest and busiest ever, with 17,666 visitors and over 900 exhibitors. Many of those who attended the Vitafoods Europe Conference said they found the experience highly valuable but wanted more flexibility in the programme so they had more time to attend other educational events, as well as the main exhibition and meetings. In addition, they said they were keen to take part in more targeted sessions aligned with their particular job function and areas of interest.
As a result, in 2017, Vitafoods Europe’s new Education Programme will be separated into three streams, as follows:
A call for papers for the seven R&D Forums has been issued, with participants invited to submit for consideration an 800-word Industry Success Story that highlights relevant ingredient applications for market success. Only one speaker per category will be chosen to deliver a paper but, for the first time, all accepted abstracts will be published on www.vitafoodsinsights.com, offering valuable exposure to everybody who contributes.
Taking place from 9 to 11 May 2017 at Palexpo in Geneva, the next Vitafoods Europe will once again be the essential event for everyone involved in the global nutrition industry.
Chris Lee, Vitafoods Portfolio Director at Informa Exhibitions, said: “We know how important it is that time spent out of the office is productive. That’s why we’ve decided to give visitors to Vitafoods Europe 2017 more freedom and flexibility in terms of how they engage with our Educational Programme. The new format will make it even easier for everyone to manage their time as effectively as possible.”
He added: “Every visitor is different, and the new Vitafoods Europe Education Programme will deliver targeted, high-value content focused on individual needs. There will be something for everyone – whether it’s information about business regulation, up-to-date market insights, or the latest cutting edge scientific research. It means that when you come to Vitafoods Europe 2017, you really can have it your way.”
