Informa Markets today announced that FHA-Food & Beverage, Asia’s leading industry event drawing exhibitors, visitors, judges, competitors and media from around the world, will be moving from March 2022 to 5-8 September 2022. Singapore Expo remains as the venue for the event. Featuring an exceptional line-up of global pavilions and individual brands, FHA-Food & Beverage is the major event where industry professionals in Asia can source new food and beverage ingredients from the world at one place.
In addition to the physical show floor, FHA-Food & Beverage 2022 will be accessible in the digital space on FHA Match (Powered by Saladplate), a virtual business matching platform launched by Informa Markets in 2021 to bring suppliers and buyers a ‘barrier-free’ space where they can continue to connect and do business year round. By combining the live events with FHA Match, participants will be able to connect and prearrange meetings on the virtual platform to ensure both their time and investment at the physical shows are optimised.
ProWine Singapore, jointly organised by Informa Markets and Messe Düsseldorf Asia, will move from currently May 2022, to join FHA-Food & Beverage from 5-8 September 2022. This will provide an opportunity for the region’s food, beverage and hospitality sectors to intersect with producers, importers, distributors and retailers of wine and spirits, delivering additional value for all participants – under one roof.
“What happened in 2020 was unprecedented but we remained resilient with the successful launch of FHA Match in 2021. It gives us great confidence to see trade shows returning in many areas of the world and following extensive discussions with our stakeholders, 5-8 September 2022 is the optimal time for FHA-Food & Beverage to play a pivotal role in assisting recovery and boosting growth throughout Asia. We look forward to welcoming everyone, but for people who can’t attend in person, FHA Match is well placed to connect both physical and virtual attendees through video calls and instant chats,” said Mr Martyn Cox, Event Director, Hospitality, Food & Beverage – Singapore, Informa Markets.
The FHA team will contact all participants to discuss their future involvement in FHA-Food & Beverage 2022.
FHA-Food & Beverage’s sister show, FHA-HoReCa will also be moving from its original date. Currently scheduled to be held in May 2022, the event’s new date will be announced soon.
