Fifth Food and Hospitality Trade Exhibition to Be Held Next Month

The Fifth International Exhibition for Food and Drink, Hotel, Restaurant, Bakery and Food Service Equipment, Supplies and Services will be held in Yangon on June 6-8 at Myanmar Event Park in Mindama, Yangon.

Organized by UBM Myanmar, the event will showcase food and beverages, tea and coffee, wine and spirits, food servicing, food service equipment, kitchen equipment and supplies, hospitality equipment and supplies, spa services, lifestyle services, wellness services, hospitality services and technologies from 200 exhibitors from 20 countries. The event will include four international showrooms focusing on Korea, Singapore, Turkey and the U.S.

“This event is not only an exhibition; it also includes competitions and events to educate people about food and hospitality,” said UBM Myanmar general manager Fraser Hawkes.

Other scheduled highlights include the 5th Myanmar Culinary Arts Competition and the 5th Myanmar National Barista Championship (MNBC).

The FoSTAM Seminar 2018 will be held along with the FoSTAM Quiz Bowl. Other activities being introduced this year are Introduction to Latte Art by Sithar and a Butchery Master Class organized by Meat and Livestock Australia.

In 2017, a total of 350,000 travelers visited Myanmar, and this number is expected to climb. Myanmar’s tourism industry is developing rapidly, with new hotels and restaurants opening daily.

Given the rapid growth of the sector, participants in the exhibition can expect to be able to explore a lot of business opportunities and connect with many people.

F&H Myanmar is an international event targeting the food & beverage, tea and coffee, and travel and tourism industries. However, it is open to anyone looking to try free food samples and purchase food and other items.

Admission is free but registration is required at www.foodandhotelmyanmar.com.
