In view of the growing need to push hospitality trade in the country, Incredible Fairs & Media Pvt Ltd launched World of Hospitality (WOH) Expo targeted at the HoReCa industry. Brainchild of three hospitality trade exhibition specialists, having a cumulative experience of over three decades—Prateek Sahay, Rajan Nair and Satish Dange, the exhibition has been launched on the back of upward curve witnessed in the hospitality trade and interest shown by companies to get the economic ball rolling for the benefit of the industry as whole.
Talking about the plan to launch a new exhibition brand, Prateek Sahay, Director Marketing, IFMPL, said, “We have been constantly monitoring the business impact on the HoReCa companies last year, namely vendors and suppliers to hotels and catering establishments, and they were becoming anxious to have a medium of a good exhibition to display their products and services to keep the business going. It became imperative since COVID-19 pandemic made many international exhibitions retract from the India market. World of Hospitality (WOH) expo, thus, aims to fill that void with a comprehensive and dedicated exhibition brand for Food Service and Hospitality Professionals.”
IFMPL’s maiden exhibition will be held at Tripura Vasini Palace Ground, Bengaluru during June 9-11, 2021. Satish Dange, Director Operations, IFMPL, said, “We had carried out a survey where three cities featured among the top interests of participants from the trade; while one is in the eastern part—other two were in the southern. Bengaluru is emerging as the key interest city and we immediately zeroed on it to hold our maiden exhibition.” He added, “We are in talks with various trade association to make it successful platform in the absence of any in the southern market and make it easier for the trade to have the confidence to be back onto the business table. In fact, we have received MSME UDYAM Certification which will push more trade players to join us. The Federation of Karnataka Caterers, The Tamil Nadu Hotels Association and Kerala Hotel & Restaurant Association have come forth to support our exhibition.”
