Satisfying Appetites for Quality F&B
Taste buds were tickled and palates satisfied as HOFEX 2019 staged its annual food and hospitality fest at the HKCEC in May. The leading event of its kind in Asia has been running for 32 years, and each edition brings new tastes and new business – and 2019 was no exception.
HOFEX 2019 featured 2,800 brands from 74 countries, covering every aspect of the F&B trade, including food-service equipment, hotel supplies, hospitality technology, as well as food and drinks. More than 42,000 visitors from across the industry attended the four-day show, looking not only to source but also seeking inspiration, information and fresh opportunities.
Competitions play a major role at HOFEX, and included the Hong Kong International Culinary Classic, which for the first time this year included a section for gelato, the classic Italian dessert gaining in popularity around the world, as well as Mixed Barista Arts and the Asian Catering Equipment Awards.
