Feedback on INTERGASTRA digital

  • “INTERGASTRA will bring the industry together - which is more important than ever in the current situation. DEHOGA Baden-Württemberg is committed as a promotional partner of INTERGASTRA and we are happy to actively contribute to the programme with our DEHOGA Online Academy.”

    Fritz Engelhardt, President of DEHOGA Baden-Württemberg

  • “As a partner of INTERGASTRA digital we continue the successful cooperation with Messe Stuttgart of February 2020 when we organised the IKA Culinary Olympics parallel to INTERGASTRA. Like the gastronomy, the trade fair industry is strongly affected by the current developments. It is all the more important to stand together and support each other now. For our industry, INTERGASTRA digital is a very good opportunity to get and exchange information online.”

    Richard Becker, President of the German Chefs' Association

  • “We are not only jointly engaged with INTERGASTRA and Messe Stuttgart at CHEFSACHE in Düsseldorf and 2021 in Wien, but also in the effort to be a partner for the gastronomy industry in challenging times in their search for answers to the most pressing questions. In addition, we plan to cooperate very closely in the further development of our new digital platform “Xircus” that implements INTERGASTA digitally. We are happy to add our industry and digital know-how to the project as a partner.”

    Christoph Rénevier, Managing Director at FLEET Events

  • “As Future Initiative Gastro, we are really excited to contribute to the gathering of the industry for a digital exchange - and in an unprecedented scope. An important date in 2021 to defy the pandemic with new impulses!”

    Rainer Laabs, Member of the Management Board at FVZ Convenience GmbH & co-initiator of the Future Initiative Gastro

  • “The new INTERGASTRA concept is very promising and we are pleased that Chef of the Year is involved in this new project and walks the new way together. We all work for the same goal - to advance the industry! It is time that we - wherever possible - combine our strengths and count on the community.”

    Nuria Roig, Managing Director of Chef of the Year

  • “The mission of the Heilbronn Hospitality Symposium is the exchange across generations. Economy and politics meet research and teaching here. INTERGASTRA digital 2021 will be a chance for us to strengthen the intensive exchange between teaching, research, economy and politics in the spring. We are delighted to take this exchange forward as the Heilbronn Hospitality Symposium TALK together with INTERGASTRA.”

    Prof. Dr. Christian Buer, Department Manager Tourism Industry, University Heilbronn
