Dear exhibitors and visitors, partners and friends,

After we unfortunately had to cancel INTERNORGA 2021 as a physical trade fair, we are all the more pleased to be able to inform you about the start of the new International Digital Food Services Expo (IDX_FS) - Powered by INTERNORGA.

In it together for the industry – Under this premise, three strong partners  launch an innovative digital platform. In time of contact restrictions, the International Digital Food Services Expo (IDX_FS) is the virtual meeting place for all players from the Gastronomy, Food Services, and Hospitality Management fields. As an alternative to the leading international trade fair INTERNORGA in Hamburg, the top decision-makers in the sectors will now meet at the IDX_FS from 15th to 17th March 2021.  Complemented by the digital INTERNORGA supporting programme, IDX_FS will offer visitors and exhibitors a safe online platform for exchanging, networking, and discovering new trends and solutions. The synergy of the three partners INTERNORGA, leading international trade fair for the entire out-of-home market, IDX EVENTS, international company for digital technology and event management, and the Institute for Culinary Art, the network for the top decision-makers in the Food Services industry, guarantees the highest quality and relevance. 

Become part of IDX_FS powered by INTERNORGA - we look forward to seeing you!

Claudia Johannsen, Business Unit Director, Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH

With the painful decision to cancel INTERNORGA 2021 as a physical trade fair in Hamburg, we felt obliged to offer our exhibitors and visitors, and thus the entire Food Services industry, an alternative exchange platform. In partnership with two strong players, we succeeded in developing an innovative digital solution to bring together all market players in these very challenging times. It is a matter close to our heart to enable first-class exchange and networking opportunities. Our concept is being received very well: Well-known companies such as MKN, Franke, RATIONAL, and Lekkerland have already confirmed their attendance.
