Julien Bonvallet, Fi Global Brand Director, comments: “Visitors have high expectations of a tradeshow and would like to use their limited time on site as efficiently as possible — to meet customers and partners, but also to educate and update themselves. That's why we are delivering a top-tier programme with highly renowned experts. Increasing numbers of participants from year to year prove that we are on the right track.”
