At the same time with Hotel Equipment

General Manager of ANFAŞ Murat Özer stated that as a result of change of shell at ANFAŞ 25th FoodProduct will be organized on the same dates with 29th HotelEquipment – International Accommodation and Hospitality Equipment Exhibition, a trademark organization in the tourism industry, and that they paid attention to the industry.   Underlining that they had the opportunity to organize two events under the same roof after the expansion of ANFAŞ’s exhibition and convention center, Antalya Expo Center, Özer said, “In line with common demand of sector representatives, we’ll organize two fairs on the same dates between October 17-20, 2018.

A promotional attack abroad

Highlighting that FoodProduct will create new business partnerships at international scale for the exhibitors this year, Murat Özer stated “Our primary target will be increasing export share of food industry through FoodProduct. In line with this target, ANFAŞ intensified its investments on overseas activities this year. For the first time in ANFAŞ, we established an overseas department that speaks 10 languages.  After long efforts, the team performed its activities by finding out the new target markets with increasing potential for food exports. This year, we found the opportunity to combine visitor base of two exhibitions as FoodProduct is organized simultaneously with 29th HotelEquipment. 25th FoodProduct will enable exhibitors to reach new target markets.”

Full-speed activities towards new target markets

Özer told that besides their overseas activities domestic professional hosted buyers are ready for the exhibition. “In Turkey, food wholesales, corporate purchasing agents, hotel and restaurant chains, chefs and cooks and sectoral visitor committees from 81 provinces will be at the exhibition this year thanks to ANFAŞ’s agreements through media and sector meetings organized in 24 target provinces as well as the assistance of Ministry of Economy, TOBB – The Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey, and ATB – Antalya Commodity Exchange with TLPF – Confederation of Turkish Restaurants and Pastry Shops, GİMAT – Ankara Wholesalers Association of Food and Necessaries, and TAFED – Cooks and Chefs Federation of Turkey”, Özer stated.

Occupancy rate of 85%

Explaining that these efforts make the exhibitors happy, Özer said, “During the sales we have made during the exhibition, more than half of the exhibitors reserved their places for 2018. As of August, we have reached an occupancy rate of 85% for the HotelEquipment and FoodProduct fairs. Leading companies of the industry reserved their places by signing contacts months before the opening of exhibition.  We expect that the exhibition venue will reach its full capacity soon.”

Don’t be late!

Özer, who urged exhibitors not to be late for the exhibitions, said, “With the change in ANFAŞ, the efforts we have made especially abroad have created an important opportunity for the exhibitors.  We call the companies from accommodation and food industries to take the opportunity of opening up to the world once again. For a short time, we have special offers for early registration. We repeat our call for registration to take these opportunities.  Come and take your place at HotelEquipment and FoodProduct before it is too late”.
