#CONNECT2030 – The Future Summit for Sweets & Snacks
Upheavals or, as one would say today, disruptived developments especially in the retail landscape - the corner shop gave way to the supermarket, the discounters came on - acted as a catalyst for the founding of ISM in 1971.
Today, 50 years later, the industry still faces numerous challenges such as the changing buying and communication behaviour of young buyer groups, the increasing importance of online retailing or ecological issues such as sustainability, compliance with environmental and social standards along the supply chain, ever shorter innovation cycles and, of course, the much-discussed digitalisation.
In a joint event of ISM and ProSweets Cologne on 04.02.2020, we brought together the actors from supply, industry and trade and together created a piece of the future!
The innovation expert Nick Sohnemann, Future Candy, guided you through the evening. The key note was held by Dr. Ulf Merbold, physicist and former astronaut. Business cases from the various supply chain stages of the confectionery business presented practical approaches to solving concrete challenges. Look forward to confectionery-relevant perspectives, great speakers and our intensive networking captains dinner.
Prerequisite for participation was a valid ticket for ISM or ProSweets 2020. Participation in the congress was free of charge.
