It’s our 28th edition and every year we feel proud to note that just like the hospitality industry in India, which is getting refined by the day, so is our Food Hospitality World (FHW) trade show. It’s an event for the industry and our endeavour is to bring to the table a relevant and strong platform for the buyers and sellers in the trade. The longevity of the event has stood the test of time as an exhibition that offers quality in business.
Every year we ask ourselves, is there something special and different we can offer our delegates? The answer in most cases has been in the affirmative. Even when the industry was facing a slump, we gave our delegates reasons to be hopeful by organising thought provoking power sessions and think tanks, from tea tasting to chef’s competitions and more. This year as well, we have something unusual to offer. For the first time FHW will be organising the ‘Mixology Championship’. The participants will include mixologists and bar tenders from some of the happening bars and restaurants in Bengaluru.
