A networking event, FVG Select 2017, will bring together pet food professionals in Cologne, Germany on June 13 and 14, 2017. The event occurs in conjunction with Petfood Forum Europe, Victam and FIAAP.
FVG Select 2017 will focus on a series of industry-specific conferences and networking with colleagues and clients from among various industry sectors. The event will be complemented by a small industry expo for a select group of companies.
The focus of FVG Select 2017 is networking. This will be facilitated through a conference and business matchmaking program. The conferences will be organized in collaboration with conference partners: AEBIOM, Aquafeed.com, IFF and Wageningen University, Perendale Publishers and Watt Global Media’s Petfood Industry.
The matchmaking program will include an online tool which allows participants to plan appointments efficiently and focus on the meetings during FVG Select 2017. Prior to and during the event, matchmaking consultants will help attendees get the most out of the program and will support you in searching for those visitors and delegates that you would like to meet and that have not registered yet.
As the name of the event implies, there will only be a limited number of booths available at FVG Select. There is a choice of three complete shell scheme packages, which include coffee/tea/lunch and access to the matchmaking program: Select Package for EUR4,995 (US$5,511), the Premium Package for EUR9,995 (US$11,026) and the Premium Plus Package for EUR14,495 (US$15,991).
Another networking and learning opportunity, Petfood Forum 2017, will occur in Kansas City, Missouri, USA on April 3-5, 2017.
Pet food research and development teams can’t know the thought process of dogs and cats, but pet food professionals can get hints about those animals’ minds from Petfood Forum 2017 keynote speaker Temple Grandin, PhD.
To learn from Grandin and many other speakers, register for the 25th Anniversary edition of Petfood Forum.
