Over the last few days Koepala have been involved in a couple of start up events in London, UK.
Yfood: Insight and Innovation in Cities
YFood is an eco-system of Food Tech start-ups in London and the surrounding area. They bring together all areas of the Food Tech economy and allow networking, idea sharing and open innovation. At this event, held at the wonderful Dutch Church, the event centred on urban living and how the food scene is adapting to meet the increasingly urbanised populations around the world. Koepala were delighted to be in attendance, although not show casing on this occasion, the company were given the opportuntity to talk to many key industry players. Needless to say we will definitely be back next year.
The second showcase was the InnovEAT festival, held at the Park Inn at Heathrow Airport. This show was unique as in it was a bespoke festival for innovations in travel catering and brought together buyers, NPD Directors and Start-ups keen to get their products into new markets. Koepala Marketing Consultant Ben Holden attended the event for the company and was pleasantly delighted by the impact of the Aterimo solution. Although not the busiest of shows there was a highly concentrated pool of attendees who may prove to be valuable in the coming few months.
