HuLST EXPO has reached an agreement with Campden BRI, one of Europe's leading food research centres, to organise briefing sessions, workshops and keynote presentations at the upcoming Food & Beverage Test Expo, to be held as part of HuLST on February 8,9 and 10, 2011 at koelmessee, Cologne, Germany. The collaboration will reinforce HuLST as a major forum for the suppliers and users of life sciences testing products and outsourced services.
HuLST approached Campden BRI to manage this crucial component of the event because of its reputation as one of Europe’s leading food research organisations, said HuLST Managing Director, David Stradling. "As a fair organiser our expertise is in understanding how our visitors, exhibitors and speakers fit together and then to deliver this as effectively as possible."
"Campden BRI’s involvement in Food & Beverage Test Expo, which will be visited by key test and QA professionals, is a clear demonstration of the ways in which this is being achieved. The collaboration will bring endless benefits to Food & Beverage Test Expo and its exhibitors and visitors. Campden BRI has a vast knowledge of the science of food and drink and will deliver a presentation schedule with real ‘teeth’ both in terms of the quality of papers and the speakers," Stradling says.
Topics covered in the Campden BRI Food & Beverage Forum will revolve around three key areas - food chemistry, food hygiene and food microbiology, with an emphasis on laboratory and quality assurance testing. There will be daily workshops and also keynote addresses by leading experts in the food and beverage industry.
By being held as part of this major industry trade fair, they will give exhibitors and visitors alike access to technical know-how and industrial insight and facilitate the practical application of technical excellence, says Jeremy Davies, Campden BRI's Director of Corporate Services.
"We are delighted to be collaborating on this venture with HuLST as it provides an excellent opportunity for industrialists to access the latest developments in the science and technology underpinning food and drink production," says Davies. "Through keynote presentations, briefing sessions and workshops, internationally recognised experts from industry, academia and Campden BRI will discuss the latest topical issues with food microbiology, hygiene and chemical contaminants.
