Food & Hotel Myanmar 2018, which is an international exhibition for food and hospitality products, is coming back for its fifth year to Yangon from June 6-8 at MEP at Mindama Yangon. The event will showcase products and services from more than 200 leading suppliers and manufacturers from 20 countries. There would also be four international pavilions from South Korea, Singapore, Turkey and the US.
Fraser Hawkes, the general manager of UBM Myanmar which is organizing the exhibition, said that he expects more than 7,500 visitors from the food and hospitality sectors to attend the event.
“Food and Hotel Myanmar is focused as a B2B trade exhibition, and it’s for the food, hospitality, retail, and bakery sectors. These industries are obviously growing a lot, not only in Yangon but also throughout the rest of Myanmar linked heavily with tourism but also general consumption and the changing needs of consumers,” said Mr. Hawkes.
“We’ll also see food service equipment – everything from combi-steamers to ovens, to dishes and cutlery, as well as technology for POS systems,” Mr. Hawkes added. Eventually in Myanmar, small and medium restaurants, cafes and tea shops will stop using pan and they will start using more technology integrated into their business.
Myanmar’s tourism industry is showing a lot of promise with 3.5 million tourists visiting the country last year. Tourists from China and Southeast Asia comprised 68% of all visitors, followed by Europeans and Americans at 19% and 7%, respectively. As a result, hospitality, restaurant, and service businesses have witnessed continuous growth in the recent years.
