Networking is the number one reason many companies attend the GFSI Conference year on year. It is naturally one of our priorities to ensure the programme is packed with opportunities for you as a delegate to make meaningful connections, strengthen your food safety network and do business. That is why we’ve carved out both formal and informal opportunities during the day as well as after hours!
Here are some of the opportunities I am most excited about for the Nice edition:
Official Cocktail and Dinner
kindly sponsored by greenfence
GFSI Conference delegates have learned to look out for the Official Cocktail & Dinner, which never disappoints as a landmark networking event of the conference week! Over the past few years, I’ve been delighted to collaborate with greenfence, who show extraordinary commitment to making this night a most memorable one.
This year’s dinner is set to surpass expectations, taking place in Le Negresco, the mythical and majestic hotel of Nice, which has hosted many heads of state, celebrities and high-profile international clientele. With its beautiful classified building, unique decor and fine art collection, Le Negresco has been the set of numerous movies and serves as just one more reason to come to Nice next February.
Official Opening Cocktail
kindly sponsored by Danone
There is nothing like the Opening Cocktail to welcome the 1,200+ participants to the GFSI Conference and create the right atmosphere to encourage mingling from the very start. Book it in your agenda now to ensure you are able to make the most of everything the Opening Cocktail has to offer. The 2019 iteration of this GFSI Conference staple, made possible by Danone, will take place at the official conference venue immediately after the first day of conference programming on Tuesday 26th February.
The breakfasts, coffee breaks and lunches organised during the event offer additional opportunities to delegates to connect and we are grateful to our Partners, Diamond Sponsors and Conference Sponsors for making this possible.
At the heart of the networking area, the exhibition centre plays a key role during the three-day event: it is the theatre where the latest innovations, products and services in the field of food safety are being showcased and shared for the benefit of the industry. We see it growing year after year. In Nice, 55 booths will be spread over 460 square meters in the “GFSI Village”. It promises to be busier than ever!
Don’t forget to grab your ticket to take advantage of these opportunities on-the-ground at the GFSI Conference in Nice. If you’d like to support GFSI and sponsor a networking opportunity at the GFSI Conference, please get in touch. We’d be thrilled to welcome you into the community!
