These will be further developed at meetings divided into thematic areas that are at the center of the global debate. FCSI Professional and Allied members, together with universities, institutions and market players will contribute by sharing ideas, projects and innovative visions for a new professional identity of the sector.
The first day, 22 October, will be dedicated to ‘safety’, which has always been vital for the foodservice and hospitality sector, but has become even more important after recent developments related to the Covid-19 global pandemic as the industry moves to ensure the safety of its guests.
The second day, 23 October, will be devoted to the topic of ‘sustainability’ and new measures to be adopted in a sector disrupted by the pandemic. Foodservice and hospitality must be efficient and adherent to regulations, but also respectful of the environment and operate sustainably within its relative budget.
The third day, 24 October, will be looking at ‘technology’ and will focus on the latest applications for improving production processes, preservation and the improvement of the shelf-life of food, with attention to solutions that prevent contamination of work environments and those open to the public.The fourth day, 25 October, will see ‘innovation’ discussed, linked not only to technology and infrastructure, but also to new operational and work processes, conceived and developed in this recent period, requiring radical changes at a cultural and managerial level.
The fifth day, October 26th, the topic of ‘communication’ will be considered, with a focus on strategies and technologies to address distances, managing relationships with collaborators, customers and institutions and developing digital solutions that enhance business and corporate reputations.This exchange of ideas for the future will alternate with other events, such as the awarding of prizes to students from hotel institutes and higher education schools who have distinguished themselves in specific project work.The FCSI party on Sunday 24 October is an invitation-only event reserved for FCSI Professional and Allied members and representatives of government authorities, public institutions and management companies.
