FiAC-21Food Match Making

The annual gathering for ingredients professionals, Fi Asia-China 2014 hosted 6 co-located shows spread across 17 halls of the SNIEC (Shanghai New International Expo Center). With over 3,000 exhibitors, this was the highest quality exhibition in China focusing on the food & beverage ingredients, nutraceuticals and pharmaceutical industries. The show has served the Chinese market for 15 years and continues to create a global meeting place for food professionals to source the ingredients they need, learn about the latest industry innovations and challenges and develop their business network.

Fi Asia-China 2014 was co-located with CPhI China, the world's largest ingredient tradeshow for the pharmaceutical industry. Fi visitors had free access to this exhibition along with 5 other co-located shows. The Starch Expo was newly introduced this year and is the only international exhibition for starch in China. The food ingredients section was enlarged to 2 halls this year and included Health ingredients (Hi), Natural ingredients (Ni) and Healthplex & Nutraceutical China (HNC), providing direct access to the industry's most innovative, finished products. Expo FoodTec showcased food machinery, packaging, and technology innovations in the food and beverage industry.

The 2014 Fi Asia-China welcomed 63,331 visitors over the 3 days (a 10% increase on 2013 figures) representing 131 various countries. According to the survey, 81% of international visitors regarded the show as important to their business, 92% regarded their overall experience as very good, while 73% claimed they will visit the show again in 2015.

Numerous features to enhance visitor experience were available at FiAC. Packed conference rooms showed industry experts provide key conference modules over the 3 days, while a free, bilingual mobile application helped visitors plan their day, meetings and have all show information. Innovation Tours, sponsored by Nutrimarketing, guided visitors around the halls to meet with exhibitors focusing on key areas, while the newly introduced Discovery Tours, in association with Leatherhead, allowed visitors take a topic focussed, self-guided tour. The new Exhibitor/Buyer programme matched visitors seeking specific products with relevant show exhibitors, and a matchmaking service with 21 Food, provided face-to-face meetings for international buyers with Chinese suppliers.

The total exhibiting area for all food related shows was 18,833 sqm., featuring 918 exhibitors including 112 international exhibitors. 80% of international exhibitors found their exhibiting experience excellent or good, 81% would recommend the show to their colleagues and 57% said the show met with or exceeded their expectations. Over half of the 2014 exhibitors have already rebooked their booths for 2015, with 54% of the remainder likely to rebook for 2015.

We at UBM Sinoexpo appreciate the support of all the exhibitors and visitors who supported Fi Asia-China 2014! The show was hugely successful, with a substantial increase in visitors and a very positive response from both exhibitors and visitors.

We look forward to as successful an event next year in Shanghai, 24-26 June, 2015!

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual b...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages.

As popularity of the smart home is growing and continues to go mainstream, technological factors play a greater role. The IoT protocol houses the interoperability battery consumption, security, and configuration of a smart home device, and it can be difficult for companies to choose the right kind for their product. For both DIY and professionally installed smart homes, developers need to consider each of these elements for their product to be successful in the market and current smart homes.
In the fast-paced advances and popularity in cloud technology, one of the most critical factors revolves around concerns for security of your critical data.

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
