2 Questions with Audrey Ashworth
What does the Own the Change theme mean to you?
It reminds us that we are all active participants in the change that is underway, and that we must grasp the environmental, ethical, digital and demographic challenges facing the planet. It is up to us to rise to the challenges of food security and changes in consumption habits. It also means scouting out new talent and nurturing the “young shoots” who are eager to actively contribute to tomorrow’s ecosystem.
What are SIAL’s ambitions?
We strive to be more than just a trade fair. I hope to develop three precise areas: Business: To continue increasing the extent and diversity of attendees, and to federate and foster contacts and encounters among them, whether before, during and after the event. Inspiration: To provide the content and services that boost professionals in their development, and to supply them with pertinent tools they can use 365 days a year. Experience: To extend guidance and recommendations, and to increase the event’s convenience and simplicity. And to always maintain the conviviality that characterizes SIAL Paris.
