It’s that time of year again – preparations for Food & Hospitality Africa powered by Hostex 2018 have begun. With innovation at the top of the shopping list for the 2018 show, running from 6 to 8 May 2018, there is absolutely no excuse for missing out on the best opportunity to tap into the burgeoning African market.
Co-hosting five shows under one massive roof at Gallagher Convention Centre, featuring thousands of fresh and exciting products by hundreds of exhibitors, the show is set for another bumper year of ripe potential. Meet and interact with key decision makers, generate leads and ensure your brand remains front-of-mind by booking your 2018 stand today.
‘We are projecting record numbers of visitors at the 2018 show, surpassing the 6 500 visitors who attended the show in May 2017. This trade show has been carefully developed over the last few years to incorporate a wider range of industries to appeal to key decision-makers within the hospitality, retail, wholesale, catering and accommodation sectors’ says Nick Sarnadas, event director of Food & Hospitality Africa curated by Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery.
Confirmed exhibitors include suppliers of user-friendly bread and confectionery ingredients, Zeelandia. This regular exhibitor’s products are designed to help professional bakers do what they do best – consistently produce great-tasting, high quality goods. Wechsler Hospitality will also be exhibiting, and have been a highlight of previous shows with their stylish selection of glassware, cutlery, barware, houseware, gifting and home décor products.
‘It’s important to acknowledge the contributions of smaller exhibitors, who bring a wide selection of advanced and original products to the show floor. Three Streams Smokehouse, suppliers of premium-grade smoked salmon and Darling Sweet, producers of hand-crafted and preservative-free toffees, were extremely successful at the 2017 show, and we are thrilled that they will both be returning in 2018,’ Sarnadas concludes.
