ErfaFoodService successfully breathed life into a new concept at the INTERGASTRA trade fair centre in Stuttgart. The network around Michael Möhring organised the "pitch & meet Food & Concept Court" with a lot of passion. This opened its doors for the first time in the restaurant by the water from 15 to 19 February 2020. Through the four building blocks of the event and the commitment of all partners, the speakers and the panelists, a format with a very special atmosphere was created, which became the exclusive meeting place for food service professionals around the industry.
The perfect front-cooking infrastructure of Aramark's restaurant provided the perfect setting for the partners to present their products live in action to the visitors, to introduce new concepts or to discuss with experts.
Visitors were able to learn about a wide range of ideas and solutions from professionals for professionals and receive advice.
The “Coocino - Micro Market Concept” of Convenience LLC was explained in detail by Hans-Joachim Schell.

Twice a day, the partners presented the special features of their products and services on stage in a short and concise manner. Visitors had the opportunity to inform themselves in a very short time.

"No one is smarter than a group of people together"
"We can be very satisfied with the first Food & Concept Court and would like to develop the concept further with all partners and interested parties. In accordance with ErfaFoodService's motto "No one is smarter than a group of people together", we are bringing together the creators of the foodservice market in various event formats, from small and very individual in visits to best practice examples with selected participants to the organisation of symposia and special trade fair concepts. Through the ErfaFoodService Journal, we inform the market about new concepts, experiences of colleagues, solutions from practice for practice and thus encourage an ad-free exchange of experiences", explains Michael Möhring - founder and organiser of ErfaFoodService and ErfaFreizeitParks.
