Bangkok welcomes the
world of food and hospitality
Great food and drinks and the warmest hospitality are
what Thailand’s International Food & Hospitality Show (IFHS) has
always been about. Now, with the ninth show in the series (IFHS 2001,
Bangkok 12-15 September 2001, at Queen Sirikit National Convention Centre)
the organizers are promising the biggest and best ever show, with new
levels of official support from across the industry.
Around 256 exhibitors from 25 countries will be there,
including national groups from Korea and the United States. Visitors from
at least 45 countries will make the 2001 event the most international
ever, say the organizers. It has been designed to cater for all sectors of
the hospitality, food and drink industry.
Says David Aitken, general manager of the show
organizer, Bangkok Exhibition Services Ltd, “There will be something for
everyone at IFHS 2001, whether they are hoteliers or restaurant owners,
retailers, wholesalers or importers of food, beverages and equipment.”
Additional specialized exhibition areas are scheduled focusing on wines
and spirits, bakery, retailing and the cleaning industry.
Alongside the established Wines and Spirits Thailand
event there will also be an international wine competition, which is open
to exhibiting companies. And IFHS 2001 also runs concurrently with
specially organized conference and seminar programmes. These include the
3rd Hospitality Industry Congress organized by the Thai Hotel Association
on the theme “Treasures of Thailand: The Place to Eat and Meet” to
promote the food & hospitality strengths in Thailand and TAT, FBAT,
TICA are supporting “Amazing Thailand Food Week” to promote
Thailand’s image; and the Thai Retailers Association conference running
in tandem with Retail Thailand 2001.
Meanwhile, the Thai Chefs Association will be
celebrating the country’s great food heritage with the 7th Culinary
Gathering of Cooks and Chefs. This is supported by competitions in ice and
fruit carving, cake decoration and tabletop displays and recording the
“World’s Biggest ice carving” by Thai Handi-Chef.
And for the first time, the Thai Restaurant Association
has announced its exclusive support for the show with the first ever
Restaurant Cook’s Competition. “With its all embracing exhibit
profile, IFHS2001 is established as Thailand’s major trade-only event
for the international world of food and hospitality,” says David Aitken.
“Visitors will find all they are looking for and more, at what is
shaping up to be our best-ever exhibition”.
