Story 3 - Review

The 13th International Exhibition for Food & Drink, Retail & Hospitality Equipment, Supplies and Services (FHC China 2009), China’s premier expo for imported food, wine and hospitality products, was reportedly one of the most successful events for the F&B and hospitality industries in China. Held from November 18-20 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Pudong, Shanghai, FHC China 2009 attracted 849 companies from 61 countries and regions, and 28 national pavilions, of which 12 were new country groups.

National and regional pavilions included Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Czech Republic, Ecuador, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, Poland, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Taiwan Region, Thailand,
Turkey, the UK and the US.

The record number of international exhibitors and their distributors were overwhelmed by the quality of buyers who attended the three-day trade show, said the organiser, China International Exhibitions Ltd, a member of the Allworld Exhibitions Alliance.

A total of 20,810 trade buyers who were at the show met a truly international portfolio of suppliers offering products that ranged from Turkish delights to seafood from Chile, meats from Argentina,
dairy products from Germany, spices from Thailand, wines from Spain and much more.

The show received enthusiastic feedback from the exhibitors. Said Daniel Zhou, managing director of Goodwell: “We have been amazed by the response at FHC China 2009. We received over
800 qualified buyers at our stand on the first day alone. This is the best show in China and it gets better every year.”

Commented Herve Henrotte of UBI France: “We have only wine companies in the French pavilion this year and all are delighted by the contacts they made. Next year, we will double our area to
four blocks and bring French food and wine companies to FHC China 2010.”
