Food&HotelAsia (FHA) will launch an industry white paper in collaboration with Euromonitor International, to celebrate the event’s 40th anniversary. The white paper, called Smart Innovations Transforming the Food and Hospitality Landscape by 2020, is a 20-page milestone report that provides a “unique insight” into major disruptors impacting the industry.
It is the result of a research study conducted by FHA organizer UBM and research firm Euromonitor, which surveyed more than 1,000 suppliers and manufacturers covering major food, hotel and foodservice equipment sectors across Asia. The white paper dives into questions such as where these manufacturers and suppliers expect their import and export business to take shape in the next one to three years, as well as how technology such as Internet of Things (IoT) and automation will shape their future markets and affect business decisions.
“This bespoke study on Smart Innovations for the food and hospitality industry is demonstrative of FHA’s commitment to drive our industry forward,” said Rodolphe Laymese, project director, Food & Hospitality, UBM. “It provides invaluable insight into the Asian and global food market which we proudly share with all members of the community at our 40th anniversary milestone event.”
The paper will only be available to pre-registered attendees of FHA2018, which is taking place in Singapore next month. It will also be made available to all delegates attending Euromonitor’s highly interactive session on “Smart Innovations Transforming the Food & Hospitality Landscape by 2020” at the FHA2018 International Conference. The three-day conference, held at two venues from April 24-26, will feature industry experts and business thought-leaders, sharing perspectives, tips and strategies across five key tracks: Hotels & Resorts, Food Manufacturing and Bakery at Singapore Expo; Central Kitchen and Food Services at Suntec Singapore.
