THE HYBRID EXPERIENCE


The World Food Innovate Summit is a hybrid event 

We know that although demand for physical events is high, many companies and countries have travel restrictions in place and may continue to do so for some time.

So we will be running World Food Innovate Summit as a hybrid event.

All content, exhibitor booths and networking sessions will be available live on our cutting edge virtual platform to all registered attendees.

SO WHAT DOES A HYBRID EVENT MEAN?
The hybrid event means that you get to choose whether you attend the event physically or online.

Both the physical and online audiences come together and participate in the same experience and content at the same time, but from different locations.

Your Summit ticket entitles you to either experience, giving you access to the content and networking in-person or remotely

A delegate ticket includes: 

  • Full onsite event access including content, exhibition hall and networking sessions
  • Access to the virtual platform from 2 weeks before the event
  • Access to all live content and networking features on the virtual platform
  • A discounted room rate at the venue hotel
  • Access to all available presentations on-demand and networking functions for 12 months after the summit

Closer to the date of the event, you will need to confirm whether you will be attending in person or virtually. We'll reach out to you about that, and you'll have time to decide what makes you more comfortable. 

If you already know you will not be able to attend physically, you can let us know on registration.
