IFE brings together more food & drink buyers and suppliers than any other UK event. In 2019, we introduced the Advice to Go Zone which provides exhibitors and visitors the opportunity to gain valuable information from industry experts. From new emerging brands to established industry professionals there are always areas to gain more industry insight and get some valuable advice.

The Advice to Go Zone will offer exhibitors and visitors to IFE the opportunity to sit down in an informal 1:1. Simply go along to the Advice to Go Zone and speak to the expert you would like advice from and spend as much or as little time as needed.
