The first IFAT impact Business Summit premiered from September 8 to 10, 2020. The aim of the international event? To gather the industry—and to drive it forward. Through innovative solutions, product presentations, a start-up stage, lectures and a B2B Matching platform for one-on-one meetings. And above all: through new sales potential—thanks to a clear edge on information and an intensive exchange within the global community.
Around 2,100 participants used the three-day Business Summit to gain an industry update, be present with their target group, network and initiate business. 1,554 exhibitor offers provided a comprehensive overview of innovations and much inspiration. And of course: ideal opportunities for a productive dialog and concrete business deals.
