Our story

Our story

InterPartner was founded in 2008 to help already internationally successful companies reach new summits through innovative approaches to operational efficiency, sustainability and breakthrough technology. Hence our term Summit!

We have evolved over the years from our initial focus on the leading brewery groups into NARTD beverages, dairy, meat, food, agriculture and in recent years the wine industry. Delivering more than 50 summits with leading groups within the FMCG sector, connecting them to more than 500 potential strategic partners from our network.

At InterPartner we see that we have two sets of customers. The global FMCG groups we are partnering with in the building of an Innovation or Sustainability Summit, that helps them achieve their business goals faster and with greater results. And the strategic suppliers to the industry; with whom we are working closely to understand their solutions and match them with the needs of their potential customers. Bringing both sides together at one of our tailor-made summits, typically held over two days.

If you were to ask one of our partners today what we do; they would say we are the opposite of a tradeshow. Bringing 12-16 carefully selected suppliers to meet 35+ key stakeholders from one of the worlds leading FMCG groups in one place. Providing the opportunity for the suppliers to present their solutions, network and build strategic partnerships with their customers.

Our business model

We are compensated for our services by the suppliers that ultimately join one of our summits, through their sales & marketing budget. This is for our services in approaching the FMCG group, building the summit and qualifying their attendance at the event.

The FMCG group's investment is the time commitment of their people and for in-person summits the event facilities and catering.
