As part of a special select group, delegates can enjoy reduced rates, including accommodation, as well as a detailed agenda designed to foster new relationships and make this Eastern hub of food and nutrition less daunting and more accessible.
With the delegation, the hope is to further strengthen ties within each region and demonstrate that each region’s food and nutrition market is meeting complex industry challenges with confidence.
The inaugural event
Taking place in Singapore from 27-29 April 2016, Food Vision Asia is a top-level industry event organised by the publisher of FoodNavigator-Asia, William Reed Business Media.
Already established with similar events in Cannes and Chicago, Food Vision will debut in Asia this year with food and nutrition innovators, strategists and analysts to discuss market challenges, business opportunities and the needs of today’s consumer.
The core theme of the first Food Vision Asia will be 'partnership for progress' and its content will be especially applicable to businesses looking to expand their reach to new overseas markets but are hesitating at making such a commitment in time and cost.
“Our program addresses regional and global trends affecting Asia’s food industry and its place in the world,” says Richard Whitehead, editor of FoodNavigator Asia.
“We’ll look at the changing shape of the pan-Asian industry and consider its ability to address the region’s nutrition issues, and to open up and manage global import-export opportunities.”
