Spotlight on Hygienic and Sustainable Catering Solutions

The international events industry is facing challenges it has never before experienced. We are witnessing the effect of the pandemic on the industry across all areas, from congresses being cancelled or going virtual, to future prospects toppled by the domino effect that follows. But the pace at which the industry is innovating is remarkable. As we move closer to the proactive phase of recovery, sharing innovations will be crucial to a successful recovery with a more resilient industry as a result.

Rotterdam is a city of innovation & experimentation where we welcome exciting new developments which impact our daily lives. We will spotlight the good work being done by KCPK in collaboration with TNO in Zeist and Conpax in Oosterhout, which aims to help events achieve the new standards for hygiene in catering, while also protecting sustainability measures in the age of COVID.

The session will zoom in on examples of innovations which can benefit congress & event organizers in the age of COVID and beyond. We will also hear from Rotterdam’s circularity hub at Blue City, which has launched the CIRCO Workshops – a way for venues to learn how to be Zero Waste Venues. Rotterdam is a high-value congress & event destination thanks to the city’s innovative character and role as a connector which translates to real solutions for our industry.
