While demand for food will never cease to grow, neither will the number of competitors looking to have their proverbial piece of the pie.

The consumer market is not easy to satisfy nor keep up with. Consumer trends change almost daily providing a tricky mixture of new opportunities and challenges to overcome. CSR, traceability and demanding labelling requirements are putting additional burden on an industry which is already: competing with the growth of the retail brand; battling the expanding allergen issue and gearing up to deflect responsibility for the growing obesity problem as it onus shifts from product creation to ingredient awareness. With these increased pressures rapidly coming to a boil, it is critical for Food & Beverage manufacturers to exploit these challenges for every potential opportunity in order to remain profitable and competitive in this ever-changing market.

The wide variety of conference sessions will enable delegates to explore new strategies and critical to the European pensions and investments industry. The programme is put together through extensive ongoing research with delegates to ensure that its content is relevant and accurately reflects their needs and interests.

The sessions will include:

Keynote Presentations presented by leading professionals who will address topics of primary interest to delegates. They will examine current strategic trends and provide a vision for the future of the European pensions industry.

Case Study Presentations delivered by pioneering practitioners followed by question time. These sessions ensure that proposed solutions and strategies are grounded in reality and delegates are able to anticipate obstacles and pre-empt problems on a practical level on return to their organisation.

Workshops and Discussion Groups are designed for smaller groups and will follow an interactive format, encouraging a high level of participation and exchange of ideas. Delegates will therefore have the unique opportunity to set the agenda for these sessions and ensure that they focus on the challenges and concerns attendees encounter in their day-to-day business lives.

One-to-One Business Meetings provide an unparalleled opportunity for delegates to meet senior representatives from solution provider companies and focus on the issues most relevant to their current needs and strategies. To ensure maximum benefit from these meetings both delegates and solution providers have the opportunity to specify in advance whom they would like to meet. Sophisticated software is used to process the meeting requests of all attendees in order to schedule the maximum possible number of desired appointments. Individual schedules are generated enabling thorough research and preparation to make the actual meeting time more effective.
