The Future of Protein Production Summit delivers the same high-quality insights and industry connections that would be on offer at an in-person event but in a format that is accessible from the comfort of your home or office.

We have created the virtual summit to satisfy the industry’s need to share cutting-edge research, learn from peers and engage in quality networking to forge valuable connections and partnerships. To effectively facilitate this need to learn and connect, our industry-leading virtual event platform will deliver a seamless event experience.

By running the show as a virtual summit it creates less than 1% of the carbon emissions of a live event. According to a recent paper Making Industrial Exhibitions Green, a three-day conference with 800 attendees has a carbon footprint of 455 tonnes of CO2 equivalent, corresponding to an average of 0.57 tonnes CO2-equivalent per participant. That is almost as much carbon emissions as a return flight from London to Helsinki, Finland (0.55 CO2-equivalent).
