More leads, more turnover: the IFAT impact Business Summit

Your digital path to business deals—at the first IFAT impact Business Summit from September 8–10, 2020. The aim of the international event? A respectable boost to the economy. Because it not only gathers the industry, but also drives 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: generate qualified leads and thus new revenue potential.

Three days packed with industry updates, presence with the target group, innovation overview, networking and business initiation: together, the components of the IFAT impact Business Summit create the ideal environment for new leads and concrete business deals. The range of action? Worldwide—thanks to direct access to the entire IFAT network with over 100,000 international contacts.

The participation is free of charge. Summit exhibitors will only have to pay capped and thus calculable costs for the generation of leads via the Matching Planner and Product Presentations modules. Start-ups benefit from special newcomer conditions.

The basis for participation is the presence in the IFAT Exhibitor Portal, which bases on the previous catalogue entry with our media partner Neureuter—for all summit exhibitors to enjoy more visibility and attention.
