“The Fispal Tecnologia attendant is greatly interested in updating and being familiar with the main trends of the Food and Beverage industry. For this reason, we are working to offer a wide range of topics that will actually impact business positively,” explains Clélia Iwaki, Director of Informa Exhibitions.

The successful partnership with SENAI will also be expanded for next year, as the entity will be at the forefront of a new version of the Industry’s Demonstrator 4.0 – focusing on the beverage industry. Expected to return in the next edition, the Solutions Lab is an attraction that solves the challenges of companies with the help of professionals from different technological areas of the Institute. The Innovation Lounge, which is also returning, will showcase 10 unreleased and ready-to-market products.

For the third consecutive year, INSTITUTO MAUÁ DE TECNOLOGIA will bring to the fair the concepts of industry 4.0 through technologies already available in Brazil and which may provide greater productivity and competitiveness to the Brazilian food industry.

With the support of the Brazilian Packaging Association (ABRE), the ABRE Packaging Lounge will bring together professionals who work in parts creation agencies and small- and medium-scale manufacturers to enhance the exchange of information and showcase the main trends and solutions for the segment. The space will also feature the ABRE Circuit of Lectures, with presentations of 20 minutes on new technologies and design.

Another confirmed attraction is the Craft Beer Arena, which was introduced in the 2018 edition, and will return even more comprehensive. Conceived in partnership with Instituto Cerveja Brasil, the space will offer lectures to encourage the exchange of knowledge about this growing beer tasting market, offering a better experience for attendants and a free 15-minute consultation on two topics: what are the next steps to create a craft brewery and product innovation.

Another initiative to attract this audience is the creation of a Spanish version of the Fispal Digital content channel, which will be launched on January 2019.

“In these 35 years, we have taken a great leap forward in terms of quality and quantity of internal attendance. Our goal now is to expand markets and strengthen the fair internationally,” concludes Clélia Iwaki.
