As the pandemic continues to impact live events across Canada, including CIFST Section table top events, CIFST has endeavoured to once again create a virtual event that will help to fill the void for industry suppliers seeking opportunities to promote their brand and engage with prospective customers.

CIFST ALT*: A Virtual Showcase

CIFST ALT is a brand-new virtual event that will focus on alternative food products, alternative technologies and innovative alternatives to how the food industry produces and distributes products to end users.

Participants will be encouraged to explore the emerging technologies, practices and approaches in the Alt space. CIFST ALT is going to be cutting edge, eye-opening and mind-blowing.

The CIFST ALT Virtual Showcase will provide food sector suppliers the opportunity to promote their unique brand via our Supplier Showcase Sessions. Each session will be fifteen minutes in length (think TED Talks style) and will be delivered twice during the event. The theme of all presentations will be “alternative.”

The fee to participate as a Supplier Showcase Speaker is $1,250 for CIFST members and $2,000 for non-members. Your fee includes 2 x 15 minute presentations, company logo placement on the event platform landing page (virtual lobby), the suppliers showcase sessions page (presentation portal), on the CIFST website and in all event communications. Your fee also includes 6 complimentary registrations for your guests.
