20. Iran food + hospitality

Teheran / IR. (ifh) Business between international suppliers and the Iranian food industry has been stable during 2010 and 2011, but it has lost momentum in 2012. The first half of 2013 does not look very promising either. During March, many traditional exhibitors of 20. iran food + hospitality now have to make up their minds about in which way to participate or not in the 20th edition of the leading food-tec event in the country. The event is taking place on 26 and 29 May 2013, a few weeks before the presidential elections. To be present at the show and meeting with old friends and customers hoping to be back for business in the second half of 2013 and the first half of 2014 is definitely an option – the organizers said in a news release. Core message: «Our company is here with you also in difficult times …». Held under the auspices of the Iranian Ministry of Jihad-e-Agriculture and the Ministry of Industry, Mine and Trade, the organizers expect some 22’000 professional visitors and 300 exhibitors at iran food + hospitality 2013. To create valuable synergies for exhibitors and trade visitors alike, iran food + hospitality takes place concurrently with iran food + bev tec 2013 (242 exhibitors from 17 countries in 2012) and iran agro 2013 (57 exhibitors from seven countries), the three dedicated events building the frame of «iran agrofood» with altogether 611 exhibitors in 2012.
