F&B, hotel and cafe professionals won’t want to miss the first Equip&Dine Asia and SEAsia Café Expo to be held on 28-30 August at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

In collaboration with EquipHotel Paris, this year’s inaugural trade show for Hotels, Restaurants and Cafes/Catering (HoReCa) professionals will focus on experiential dining, exploring how the foodservice industry can meet the demands of consumers looking for dining experiences that tease all their senses—not just their taste buds. With plans to transform the exhibition space into restaurants and cafes of the future, visitors will be taken on an entertaining multi-sensory trail showcasing ingredients, equipment and other innovations by key industry players.

Equip&Dine Asia 2019

If you’re looking to find kindred partners in areas such as decoration, furnishings & finishings; food & beverage; hygiene equipment & supplies; indoor & outdoor furniture; interior design decoration; kitchen equipment; linen & professional textiles; and tableware supplies, you would have come to the right place. Explore the booths one by one as you stroll through the thematically laid out exhibition space. Along the way, don’t be surprised when you stumble on an actual restaurant offering a cosy space for you to enjoy your lunch with new-found contacts and colleagues.


While you’re there, be sure to attend one of the foodservice conferences and masterclasses held by top chefs and industry specialists. Dangerous Liaisons: Foodservice Now, on 29 August for instance, will see experts discussing how foodservice sector companies can maintain a firm grasp on trends and classic concepts while improving their bottom line and meeting consumer demand. Head here to check out the full conference programme.


Don’t miss The Most Gracious Host Challenge, where home chefs will wow a panel of judges with a 4-course menu for 12 guests that should hit all the right notes on taste, presentation, service and hospitality. Another exciting competition to look out for is the Table Dressing Challenge, where banquet and catering operations teams will pit their skills against each other in putting up the most beautiful display tables within a set time.
