“Over the years, Hotel, Hospitality & Food Asia has established itself as the most comprehensive sourcing platform in Sri Lanka and grown to be one of the leading international business-to-business hospitality and food trade show in the country. This year’s edition will build on the success of the previous shows while the exhibition’s visitor campaign is targeted at professionals engaged in hotels, hospitality and tourism projects in Sri Lanka and South Asia,” said MP Events Lanka (Pvt.) Ltd Director Emile Gunesekera.
“With increased economic and trading activity, a global spotlight on Sri Lanka’s tourism, which has led to increasing tourist arrivals and Colombo gradually transforming into a pivotal air hub for regional trade, Sri Lanka is the instinctive choice for an industry event such as this,” he added.
With wide-ranging stalls encompassing all subsets within the industry, key industry professionals and a host of activities, HHF Asia 2015 will be a launch pad for networking, forging new partnerships and cross-industry collaboration. Visitors to the exhibition are expected to comprise hotel and resort owners, general managers, banquet managers, executive chefs, industry importers, distributors and wholesalers, food service and hospitality consultants, hotel suppliers and more.
