FHA marked its Ruby Jubilee in 2018 with a record-breaking attendance of more than 80,000 industry professionals from 105 countries. In 2020, the event will be rebranded into two shows, FHA-HoReCa and FHA-Food & Beverage.

Singapore - Food&HotelAsia has received the 'Special Recognition' award at the recent Singapore Tourism Awards 2019 ceremony which presented 29 awards in four categories. 

This is the third award FHA is recognised for at the Singapore Tourism Awards. Previously FHA took number one spot for Best Exhibition Organiser for its editions in 2008 and 2016.

Paul Wan, Managing Director, UBM Singapore, organiser of FHA, said: "Receiving the Special Recognition Award is not possible without the shared vision of government bodies, trade associations, the F&B community, and above all, to employees who laboured behind the scenes edition after edition.”

The Special Recognition award honours the efforts of organisations or individuals who have made key contributions to Singapore's tourism landscape through their creativity, innovative ideas, best practices and by the sheer significance of their contribution to the tourism sector.

Andrew Phua, Director, Exhibitions & Conferences, Singapore Tourism Board (STB), said: “FHA's international reputation as Asia's marketplace for innovation in the food and hospitality industries has contributed to Singapore's standing as a global hub in these areas. We look forward to more of such large-scale events as we work in partnership with our industry stakeholders, and to welcoming future editions of FHA."

Started in 1978, FHA marked its Ruby Jubilee in 2018 with a record-breaking attendance of more than 80,000 industry professionals from 105 countries. 

In 2020, the event will be rebranded into two shows, FHA-HoReCa and FHA-Food & Beverage.

FHA-HoReCa will be a platform for global stakeholders from the food service industry to showcase new to market innovations hotel, hospitality technology and style, and share best practices. 

FHA-Food & Beverage will focus on food ingredients, drinks and fresh produces to encourage connections and facilitate trade in Asia and beyond.

FHA-HoReCa will be staged from 3 to 6 March 2020 and FHA-Food & Beverage three weeks later from 31 March to 3 April 2020, at the Singapore Expo.
