EFSA Conference 2018

Parma Expo, September 18 th - 21 st 2018

The annual conference of the European Food Safety Authority, the international authority for food protection and hygiene, had as its theme "Science, food and society". In four days, 3 thousand researchers, evaluators, social scientists, risk managers and industry representatives from all over the world gathered to discuss the complex connections between these three areas (science, food and society), so core in our lives. Tecnoconference Europe–Del Fio Group has supported this ambitious project, providing all the audio, video and lighting technologies.

The works alternated between the 2500-seat Auditorium and three 500-seat rooms. Tecnoconference Europe–Del Fio Group provided line array systems in the Auditorium and suitable audio systems in the breakout rooms, set up spectacular lighting devices both in the stage and in the hall, coordinated all the ppt and keynote presentations with a dedicated everywhere-connected slide centre, and streamed on the official EFSA website all the speeches, most of which were held at the same time, thus giving the audience the chance to choose which ones to follow.

To complete the services there was a video direction with three video projectors blending on a 20-meter screen, a full-HD four-camera direction in the Auditorium, including a radiocamera, shooting all the speeches. It was a demanding intervention involving a team of twenty specialized technicians.
