A highly engaging and multi-sensory show, THAIFEX-World of Food Asia returns for its 15th edition, bigger and better to serve up the best of the food and beverage (F&B) industry in one blockbuster seating.
With five dedicated trade days, up from three in 2017, THAIFEX-World of Food Asia is the strategic gateway for companies looking to penetrate the F&B industry in the ASEAN and Indochina regions.
The show will play host to more than 2,500 exhibitors from 40 countries and regions, and house its largest congregation of international and local exhibitors in a space that is 14 per cent bigger than last year. This year’s edition will expect 60,000 trade visitors from all over the world – a 10 per cent increase from the number of visitors in 2017.
An expanded and improved hosted buyer program will also facilitate trade and commerce for over 3,000 buyers, the largest continent of global buyers hosted at an F&B trade show in the region.
This year, THAIFEX-World of Food Asia presents 11 masterfully crafted trade shows across all 11 mega halls at the IMPACT Exhibition and Convention Center. Making its debut this year is the THAIFEXtaste Innovation Show, where in-depth analysis on the opportunities and challenges driving the F&B landscape will be showcased alongside top consumer trends around packaging, technology and flavours that are taking product development forward in 2018. Visitors will also get insights into the Top 50 Innovative Products, and three other special shows that will be launched this year – the Halal, Organic and Franchise markets.
THAIFEX-World of Food Asia 2018 continues to host two highly anticipated public events – the Celebrity Coffee Bar (CCB), and the Thailand Ultimate Chef Challenge (TUCC). With some of the world’s best baristas, brewers, and chefs headlining the program, expect a fine show of technical prowess, competition, and camaraderie.
