After this year’s epic inaugural Food & Hospitality Africa show at Gallagher Estate, you won’t want to miss out on the 2017 event. Taking place from Sunday the 7th of May to Tuesday the 9th of May, the event combines Hostex’ hospitality know-how with IFEA’s showcase of new products from around the globe.


The launch of Food & Hospitality Africa in 2016 was nothing short of remarkable. It was the first time the two trade shows co-located at Gallagher Convention Centre from 3 to 5 May, with 300 exhibitors from 28 countries worldwide showcasing their products and services to over 6 400 trade visitors. A whopping 99% of surveyed visitors in 2016 said they would return to the 2017 show which will continue to deliver key buyers.


Food & Hospitality Africa powered by Hostex offers exhibitors a platform to exhibit and showcase a large variety of products, ideas and services. As an established industry platform, Hostex carries a 30 year history and is the biggest Pan-African show of its kind – bringing the seller much closer to the buyer for specific interaction. F&HA encompasses industry sectors such as: retail, hospitality, restaurants, foodservice and catering. Exhibitors have the opportunity to engage all the senses, and also perform free demonstrations face-to-face with visitors to assist them in making that big decision. Exhibitor, Adam Penn from Laundry Kitchen Washroom (LKW) said: “The show was absolutely amazing, and the quality of visitors at our stand was also very good. Exhibiting has been positive and because the show attracted the right visitors, we doubled our leads day-on-day”.


Hostex powering Food & Hospitality Africa 2017 guarantees an even better show, raising the ante and stepping up exhibitor and visitor satisfaction alike. Projections in terms of number of exhibitors and visitors have increased once again, reassuring all stakeholders of worthwhile ROI. The first and most important question potential exhibitors would ask is: why should I exhibit? The answer is, of course, to deliver on set objectives, whether they are to generate on-site sales and sales leads, enjoy unrivalled marketing exposure or demonstrate their products in a live, vibrant environment to the industry.


This is what exhibitors and visitors can expect at F&HA in 2017 – whether you want to gain intensive and cutting-edge knowledge from industry captains at the free-to-attend seminars, show off your latest innovations, engage with industry decision makers, participate in expert competitions, and get to know industry associations and partnerships. You won’t want to miss out on this event, so save the date!
