FHA-Food & Beverage will reopen in March 2022

The event is now scheduled to take place from 28-31 Mar 2022.

Informa Markets has announced that FHA-Food & Beverage will no longer take place physically in 2021. Instead, the event will reopen in 2022 from 28-31 Mar at its original location Singapore Expo & Max Atria.

The platform of choice for global suppliers to meet distributors, importers, manufacturers and retailers from across Asia-Pacific, FHA-Food & Beverage’s attendees cover an international scope, with country and group pavilions from more than 70 countries and regions showcasing their offer from every continent.

The FHA team will contact all exhibitors, visitors and partners to discuss their future participation in FHA-Food & Beverage in 2022, and propose solutions aimed at supporting the needs of the industry amid disruption in the food and hospitality business globally.

Meanwhile, FHA Match, the new virtual series of FHA events, will kick off with an F&B Series comprising six versions to be held throughout 2021. Powered by Saladplate.com, the virtual event will run two days packed with artificial intelligence (AI)-driven and meetings to match businesses, enabling them to form new connections and unlock new opportunities across markets. Attendees can also catch demonstrations to discover new and breakthrough products, and join lively sessions that will discuss emerging trends impacting their businesses.

Designed to be sector-focused, the first edition of FHA Match will centre on meat, with subsequent editions spotlighting dairy, frozen food, drinks, sweets and snacks, and fine food respectively.

Martyn Cox, event director, hospitality, food and beverage – Singapore, Informa Markets, said: “Within any challenging decision, there is an opportunity. The launch of FHA Match is just one example of our commitment to creating fresh and meaningful opportunities for our community in a number of ways, so that individuals can continue to stay engaged and businesses can thrive all year long. We look forward to working collaboratively with the industry, to provide tailored solutions that will deliver positive results and lasting connections for all.”
