The much-anticipated Food & Hospitality Africa is just 3 months away, and while the floors are going to be packed with exhibitors showcasing must-have products and services, the Host-ED seminar is shaping up to be essential for everyone in the industry.
Food & Hospitality Africa is taking place at the Gallagher Estate from 3 – 5 May and the seminar will run throughout those days. “Host-ED has been a firm favourite at Hostex for several years, and now with the co-location of Hostex and IFEA in Food & Hospitality Africa, it promises to deliver even greater value to attendees, bearing in mind the broadening of the scope of this expo,” says Nick Sarnadas, Food & Hospitality Event Director with expo organiser Specialised Exhibitions Montgomery. The Host-ED presentations will be delivered on the exhibition floor on a first-come, first-served basis.
Highlights from the confirmed seminar so far include:
- The DTI’s Road Map for the SA Food & Beverage industry, outlining what the DTI has in store for 2016 and how that will benefit the food, beverage and hospitality industries.
- Insight into SA’s imminent food labelling regulations R429
