Here is what happened in Dubai

on the 2nd of Nov 2022

The Fast Food & Cafe Convention was launched in 2017 with an ambitious vision to create a platform and community for all stakeholders in the QSR, Cafe, Fast Causal, Cloud Kitchen, Casual Dining and Restaurant industry, which we are excited to say, has gradually become a reality. We have grown from a small exhibition and conference to one that now brings together over 1000 key F&B professionals and service providers.

The event has grown over the last 6 editions in India and 1 in the UAE and we are overwhelmed by the staggering support from the industry. Luckily for us, veterans and burgeoning business alike in the industry have lent their support, knowledge and industry know-how for us to be able to put together an event that promises in-depth discussions, a genuine sense of community and unparalleled networking opportunities.

The show took place at the Conrad, Dubai, on the 2nd of November 2022, housing over 30 Exhibitors & Partners representing some of the F&B industry’s more interesting technology, ingredients and equipments. The show also featured 300+ brands, 613 attendees & 42 speakers. Based on the gracious feedback of our partners, speakers and attendees alike – the event was a triumph!

We couldn't have done this without our Advisory Committee!
