Informa Markets, the organiser of FHA-HoReCa, has announced that it will postpone the event to 13-16 July 2020 at Singapore Expo due to the evolving 2019 novel coronavirus situation. FHA-HoReCa was scheduled to be held at Singapore Expo from 3-6 March 2020.
The event is an expansion from the comprehensive international food and hospitality biennial trade event in the region, Food&HotelAsia (FHA). FHA is returning to Singapore this year as two dedicated shows – FHA-HoReCa and FHA-Food & Beverage. The former seeks to bring together an extensive line-up of leading hospitality suppliers in the region while the latter is Asia’s largest international event for the food and beverage industry.
FHA-Food & Beverage will take place as planned from 31 March – 3 April 2020 at Singapore Expo. Serving a wide range of industry segments including retail, wholesale, e-commerce and foodservice, the FHA-Food & Beverage event remains robust in the current climate and visitor pre-registrations continue to pour in.
Mr Martyn Cox, Event Director for FHA-HoReCa and FHA-Food & Beverage at Informa Markets, said, “Postponing FHA-HoReCa was a difficult decision but a necessary one, considering the effects on the wider HoReCa industry in Asia. We are now focused on working closely with our exhibitors, event partners and registered visitors to ensure that we offer them the necessary support required as a result of this decision.”
“Moving forward, we will continue to work with the local authorities and take all measures in accordance with the latest advisories published by the Singapore Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Manpower and the Singapore Tourism Board. Our sole focus remains, that is to deliver high-quality experiences for our participants attending FHA-HoReCa and FHA-Food & Beverage,” Mr Cox added.
