Global industry executives from the animal feed processing, grain processing, ingredients, additives, aquafeed, petfood and biomass pelleting industries recently met in Cologne, Germany, for the first edition of FVG Select.
Nearly 1,000 visitors came from 59 countries, and every continent was represented at the meeting organized by VICTAM International BV. As the name of the event implies, FVG Select was limited to 55 exhibitors. Visit www.fvgselect.com to view the exhibitor list.
The focus of FVG Select was networking, business matchmaking and gathering new industry knowledge. This was facilitated through an extensive program. The following conferences were organized in collaboration with partners AEBIOM, Aquafeed.com, IFF & Wageningen University, Perendale Publishers and WATT Global Media:
- FIAAP Animal Nutrition Conference 2017
- Aquafeed Horizons Europe 2017
- AEBIOM International Pellet Workshop 2017
- Petfood Forum Europe 2017
- GRAPAS & Global Milling Conference 2017
- VICTAM Feed Processing Conference 2017.
The partnership program consisted of a combination of an online tool, which allowed exhibitors and visitors to plan their appointments efficiently, and a personal approach by Victam matchmaking consultants before and during the event. These features added 10%-20% of meetings to everyone’s schedule.
Another new feature was the VICTAM News Room. Speakers, visitors and exhibitors were interviewed about their expertise. The news crew also presented running reports about the events through Victam’s social media channels. To catch an impression of the event and watch all interviews, please go to this YouTube channel.
