The organisers of Food & Hospitality Queensland are excited to announce that the show will be returning from August 1-2, 2021 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre. It will feature over 160 exhibitors and a series of special events for industry professionals.
“We are seeing real demand for an event that brings the industry back together to reconnect and rebuild,” says Event Director Tim Collett.
“It has been a tough year for everyone, but we know that the food and hospitality industry is resilient and will bounce back. Queensland is ahead of the curve and looking forward to the return of normal trade and the influx of domestic travellers. This show will help everyone be ready”.
Food & Hospitality Queensland is the only dedicated food industry expo in the sunshine state. It is designed to meet the needs of the retail, foodservice and tourism sectors. It was launched in 2018 and was an immediate success with buyers.
“It is a big market that is becoming increasingly sophisticated, and there is no doubt food and hospitality will remain at the core of future developments,” says Collett.
“It’s about running the show that people want and need.”
Special events running alongside the show will include the popular Queensland Chef of the Year competition, Brisbane Café School, Aged Care Catering Summit and a new workshop for young chefs looking to supercharge their career.
Dane Nicholson from the Hospitality Superstore says he is looking forward to the show. “The last show gave us a chance to speak with hundreds of new and existing buyers. Next year will be even more important as we help the industry to rebuild, recover and adapt”.
Stand bookings have just opened. Collett says “we are keeping the show tight and only have room for 160 exhibitors. We want to show the best range of food, drink and equipment. I encourage suppliers wanting to target this market to contact us early to secure their space.”
Visitor registration is also open. Entry is free but strictly trade only – you must work in a food or hospitality business to attend the show.
