Five specialised events at FHA2012 to meet growing industry demand
Story 2 - Preview

THIS April, Singapore will host five specialised shows covering the entire spectrum of the food and hospitality industry under the umbrella of Food&HotelAsia2012 (FHA2012), the biggest international event of its kind in Asia.

On November 24, a Cabinet committee of ministers cleared a proposal to further open up FDI in Indian retailing. The proposal was cleared, overriding objections from coalition partners, particularly the Trinamool Congress.

The 18th edition of the biennial mega trade event will take place at the Singapore Expo from April 17-20, bringing with it these five shows: FoodAsia, HotelAsia, Bakery&Pastry, HospitalityStyleAsia and HospitalityTechnology.

Organised by Singapore Exhibition Services (SES), FHA2012 will be the largest edition since its inception in 1978. The expanded show takes up 85,000sqm of space spanning nine halls in Singapore Expo.

More than 2,600 exhibitors from 65 countries/regions and 46 international group pavilions will be participating at FHA this year and SES is expecting over 54,000 government, business and trade attendees from over 90 countries and regions to visit the event.

Industry professionals attending FHA2012 can expect not only to view and buy the latest products, services and technologies for their businesses but it will also be a venue for establishing new alliances with the relevant business community and key decision makers in the food and hospitality trade.

Focused on promoting the Asian food and hospitality industry, FHA continues to grow along with the industry as the premier trade event synonymous with the food and hospitality industry in Asia and beyond, offering trade partners greater possibilities to grow partnerships and open up new sales channels for their products.

Commenting on the upcoming event, Ting Siew Mui, SES’ project director of Lifestyle Events, observes: “More countries in Asia are liberalising their markets to facilitate foreign trade, making an urgent need for the foodservice, hospitality and travel industries to enhance their product offerings and productivity to meet growing demands arising from changing consumer habits.

“With a remarkable contingent of top-quality industry players coming from across the globe, it is evident that the five specialised shows together will present a timely and all-inclusive trading platform for international sellers and buyers.”
