IEML to Host Premier B2B Foodservice & Hospitality Trade Event
The fifth edition of India International Hospitality Expo (IHE) is taking place from August 3-6, 2022, at the India Exposition Mart Centre (IEML), Greater Noida. The show houses 400-plus exhibitors and offers opportunities to small and medium-sized business owners to network and do business with important hotel and food service industry entities.
The show has been approved under the marketing system of the Uttar Pradesh government’s One District One Product (ODOP) initiative. The Government of India’s MSME Ministry certified the fair under the PMS plan and passed on the benefit of rebates to IHE 2022 participants. The National Small Industries Corporation (NSIC) and the Export Promotion Council for Handicrafts (EPCH) have also encouraged their members to participate in large numbers at the expo.
The trade show is spread across 30,000 sq mt and is built on its reputation as a much sought-after interactive platform for vendors of products and services catering to the hospitality and food service sectors. There is a vibrant concurrent programme featuring a four-day Conclave and six Masterclasses by leading chefs from across the country. IHE2022 is backed by some of the most important professional groups in the hospitality and food service industries.
Commenting on the importance of IHE 2022 in the post-Covid hospitality landscape, Rakesh Kumar, Chairman, IEML, said, “Internationally acknowledged as one of India’s biggest B2B shows for the hospitality and food service sectors, IHE is a one-of-a-kind interactive platform that acts as the bridge between sellers of the products and services that are relevant to the industry and their immediate buyers. With four successful editions behind it, including a 100 per cent virtual show, IHE has successfully hosted more than 800 exhibitors and 24,000 visitors in total.”
Hari Dadoo, President, IHE, added, “IHE is much more than an exhibition. It is a knowledge fest for professionals engaged in the hospitality and food service sectors. From students of hotel management and the culinary arts to professionals in the F&B, front office, housekeeping, kitchen management, purchase, and engineering departments of hotels, to owners and operators of standalone restaurants as well as QSR chains, IHE has something of interest for everyone.”
