As the COVID-19 situation stabilises in Singapore and the region, the F&B industry is fully geared to seek new opportunities and to carve new niches especially in the areas of food ingredients, supply chain, operations, manpower, and new business opportunities.
Restaurant Association of Singapore (RAS) and Singapore-headquartered Conference & Exhibition Management Services (CEMS), a regional company in Meeting, Incentive, Convention and Exhibition (MICE) announce the return of established F&B mega platform – Restaurant Asia 2022 (RA 2022).
RA 2022 is co-located with International Coffee & Tea Asia 2022 (ICTA 2022) which incorporates the highly anticipated 9th edition of Café Asia and the 8th edition of Sweets & Bakes Asia 2022.
The 3rd Restaurant Asia show and the 9th ICTA series will present the line-up of physical shows at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore Expo and Convention Centre that will see participation by international and local exhibitors. The co-located shows spanning across 5,500 sqm of gross exhibition area will host more than 120 brands and companies from more than 10 countries including Singapore, and are expected to welcome some 8,000 international and local trade and public visitors.
RA 2022 will also highlight opportunities and fast-rising market potentials in the F&B scene – Manpower & Automation, Hawker Entrepreneurship and Halal food exhibitors.
The F&B industry took a hit during the height of the COVID-19 pandemic. RA 2022 therefore presents itself as an opportunity for industry leaders and players to discuss and find solutions to improve efficiencies in their front of house and back of house operations.
Following the recent push by the Singapore Government to equip aspiring and existing hawkers with the relevant skills and competencies to run their hawker businesses, the focus on Hawker Entrepreneurship at RA 2022 is timely as visitors will find that they will avail themselves to resources and networks as they take that first step into the business.
At the shows, business owners, key players from the F&B, coffee & tea, and bakery industries will also establish and welcome new collaborations, explore opportunities, learn best practices, present thought leadership forums, and present the latest trends and developments to trade professionals and members of the public. The unique cluster of these shows will offer a one-stop convenient sourcing hub for the F&B, coffee, tea, and bakery industries.
The shows will serve as a hub of knowledge and technical know-how to all visitors and conference delegates that includes invaluable insights on productivity, capability development and leveraging on relevant technologies to future-proof the F&B business, fronted by prominent business leaders in the F&B, coffee, and tea industries.
