FPC Future 2020

The agritech event for the fresh produce, flower and plant industry.

FPC, in conjunction with the University of Lincoln Institute for Agri-Food Technology, is launching two brand new events for the fresh produce, flower and plant industry. FPC Future and FPC Careers are two co-located events taking place on 3 November at the Epic Centre, Lincolnshire Showground.

FPC Future is the agritech event for the fresh produce and flower industry and houses an exhibition, conference, working displays and tours of the University’s specialist facilities at their Riseholme Campus.

Exhibitors at FPC Future will be organisations who supply the industry with technologies to help businesses keep up to date with this fast-developing sector by showcasing all that is new right now and also what the future promises.  Visitors will be able see how new technologies can help them become more efficient, increase productivity and help their workforce.

The conference programme is an extensive one with five conference theatres. The content will cover robotics and automation, data driven technologies, plastics and packaging, supply chain waste, carbon supply chains, vertical farming and a careers theatre. 

There is also a theatre dedicated to exhibitor presentations where exhibitors can present their latest offerings to a captive audience. This coupled with the facility for working displays gives exhibiting companies a unique opportunity to ensure their products and services are seen. 

The tours of the University of Lincoln’s Riseholme Campus will provide a fantastic opportunity for visitors to see first-hand the technological developments that this institution is carrying out. Visitors will have the chance to view robotic harvesting of strawberries, a state of the art refrigeration unit, along with other facilities supporting projects in artificial intelligence, robotics and engineering.

FPC Careers is the careers event for fresh produce and horticulture where undergraduates and postgraduates will be able to meet those companies with vacancies to fill and looking for fresh talented young people.
