Hotelex Shanghai was successfully held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China from 28 March to the 31 March 2017 . The rising profile and the increase in popularity is evident by the 10% increase in attendance as compared with 2016.
In addition to foodservice equipment, this year’s event also showcased tableware, textiles, information technology systems, security systems, wine and spirits, bakeries and ice-cream.
FCSI Asia Pacific had a complimentary booth beside the public forum area where projects of FCSI members were on display. FCSI APD members also participated as speakers/panelists – three FCSI APD members spoke on a hotel kitchen design forum while two FCSI members were speaking at the central production forum. Both forums were full with over 200 attendees.
FCSI APD led and participated in the first equipment award selection process at Hotelex Shanghai and for the first time FCSI members were invited to join the gala banquet where the award ceremony took place. We look forward to continued collaboration with UBM in upcoming events in Asia.
