The UK’s Largest Virtual Food & Drink Marketplace 5th April – 18th April 2021
Innoveat’s mission is to continue to make leveraging alternative routes to market easier for food & drink suppliers, especially in the current climate. “We’ve always aimed to make a real difference and add value to the world of Food exhibitions”, said Heerum Fleary, in what is an extremely challenging time for the industry. After the huge success of Innoveat’s first virtual event in September 2020 which was online for 26 days, we had 134 brands take part and over 50 buyers.
This year Innoveat is offering a virtual solution again for both buyers and suppliers which will facilitate networking, 1-2-1 meetings and a longer exhibition window for suppliers. So instead of waiting months again to discover new products, or be found by industry peers and buyers, the industry is invited to attend the Innoveat 2021 virtual marketplace.
“Innoveat continues to pioneer in the food exhibition industry by providing new ways for buyers to connect with the best suppliers in the UK. This year is no different, so we will be launching a virtual marketplace which allows buyers unlimited access to suppliers over a 14-day period. We are incredibly excited about this opportunity again to meet the needs of such a brilliant industry during these unpredictable times”, – Innoveat Founder, Heerum Fleary.
The Innoveat 2021 virtual marketplace will be open between 5th April – 18th April 2021. Buyers from various sectors including retail, foodservice, wholesale, trains, airlines, ferries/cruises, hotels, petrol forecourts will be attending, browsing the suppliers, and requesting 1-2-1 meetings. There will be a dedicated networking lounge which allows for small groups of people to meet and connect using video chat. Buyers can also request more information from individual suppliers via their ‘virtual booths’. With no access time limitations, buyers can browse for as long as they like and as many times as necessary.
Benefits of attending:
– Individual supplier booths will consist of a short video, product range details and offers. – Virtual networking lounges which allow you to video chat with your peers, suppliers, and buyers. – Buyers have unlimited access to the virtual marketplace and can request 1-2-1 meetings. – Virtual booths are live and accessible for a 14-day period.
Brands signed up are those who have just launched a product in the last few weeks/months or are about to launch as well as existing brands so its perfect timing for Innoveat to go virtual.
Buyers signed up so far are across all sectors from retail to wholesale.
Samples are also sent out by the Innoveat team into one large package one week before the live date.
