Informa Markets has announced that the 2020 edition of FHA-HoReCa, one of the world’s leading events serving the foodservice & hospitality industry, will be cancelled given the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic being felt throughout the global hospitality and tourism industries. The event will resume in May 2022 at the Singapore Expo.

“It is heartening to see positive signs that recovery has started in some domestic markets, however, it will be a while longer before a full rebound of the international hospitality and tourism sectors can materialise. The decision to cancel was a tough one to make, but without suitable tenancy availability in the correct time period for the industry, this is very much the right one taken in the best interest of our attendees,” Informa Markets said in a statement.

In the meantime, Informa Markets are excited to invite you to join the FHA online congress from 13-14 July 2020. Tune in to 45+ virtual livestream content focused on key topics including Hospitality Retrofit Post-COVID, Digital Operations in Hotel & Food Services, Food Manufacturing, Trade and e-Retail, Food Safety 360 – From Farm to Fork and FoodTech 4.0.

The FHA Congress has been recast to be the first event of its kind to enable a post COVID industry. Delivered digitally to help manage travel and physical distancing restrictions, the organising committee is delighted to present an innovative and creative format for the event.

Re-purposed to address the emerging and likely permanent shifts in the Hospitality and Food industries, the content will be practical and strategic. Immediate COVID related solutions will be balanced with a longer-term industry outlook.
