ABOUT 15,000 trade visitors, 10% of whom will be from overseas, are expected to attend the Food and Hotel Show 2007 (FHM07) at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre from Aug 22-25.
The event is being held in conjunction with Culinaire Malaysia 2007.
Malaysian Exhibition Services (MES) general manager Alun Jones said FHM07 would also play host to PROPAK 2007, the Asean Food Congress and the World Association of Cooks Societies (WACS) Asia Pacific Forum.
“A total of 600 exhibitors from 32 countries will be at this premier show and the spin-offs to the tourism sector will be substantial,” Jones said.
The competition first started in 1993 with 300 participants but this year, there will be 1,105 participants. It will showcase 30 categories of competition with three new additions – Battle of the Chefs, Dream Team Challenge and Truly Malaysian Challenge.
The Battle of the Chefs participants will showcase live hot cooking with the team having to prepare a three-course menu while the Dream Team Challenge is a competition to prepare an All-Day Dining F&B experience and the Truly Malaysia Challenge is a challenge to prepare Malaysia’s traditional dishes.
