Digital platform IFE & IMS Connects launches for food and drink industry

Montgomery Group, organiser of International Food & Drink Event (IFE) and IFE Manufacturing Solutions (IMS), has unveiled a new online platform which will enable suppliers and buyers to meet, network and share thought leadership virtually.

IFE & IMS Connects will enable food & drink suppliers to showcase their products and services year-round to an engaged and diverse buyer audience, as well as facilitating networking, one-to-one meetings and online demonstrations.

Regular content including webinars, roundtables, podcasts and product demos will be hosted on IFE Connects for the international food & drink community, providing much-needed insights into the latest news and trends in the industry.

The platform will act as a comprehensive database of the latest suppliers in the food & drink industry, allowing buyers to quickly and easily find and compare brands that fit their requirements, alongside recommending relevant new businesses.

IFE & IMS Connects will also integrate seamlessly into the live event experience when International Food & Drink Event and IFE Manufacturing Solutions return to ExCeL London in March 2022.

New connections made at the shows will be viewable on IFE & IMS Connects, and attendees can use the platform to schedule talks and demos to attend, arrange in-person meetings and search exhibitors.

Event Manager Nicola Woods commented: “The past year has given us time to think about how we can harness digital resources to add value to our suppliers and buying community. We have purposely created a platform will sit harmoniously alongside our live events all year round and provide a long-term opportunity for suppliers.

“IFE & IMS Connects will bring our community together in the lead-up to the 2022 editions of International Food & Drink Event and IFE Manufacturing Solutions, supporting and expanding on the networking and sales conversations that take place on the show floor.”
