Hot and Spicy show at FHM 2013
Food and Hotel Malaysia 2013 showed why it is still the number one trade food fair to be reckoned with in the country. In its 12th showcase, Food & Hotel Malaysia exhibition played host to some 18,865 trade visitors from 57 nations at Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC), Malaysia, which saw an increase of approximately 5.5% from the previous show. 1,160 participating companies from 47 nations and 6 international pavilions namely Japan, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan ROC, Turkey and USA made the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre their home away from home at FHM 2013 occupying 13,000 sqms of space spanning across seven exhibition halls making it the biggest series by far since its inception in 1993.
Top industry players that were present at FHM 2013 included names such as CB Frozen, Delvedere Pasta, English Hotbreads,Eurochef, Global Pacific Victory, Kian Contract, Illy, Lucky Frozen, NKR, Pastry Pro, SCC Corporation, Sinmag Bakery Equipment, Wong Brothers, Vitamix just to name a few!
FHM2013 recognised the need to have a dedicated conference and seminar that would benefit exhibitors and visitors on the whole and one such offering was a seminar and workshop on Malaysian Halal Certification, Standard & Auditing. This seminar was specially designed for those who were interested in applying for Malaysias halal certification, namely for their products, premises and services.
A dedicated conference by Asean Hotel and Restaurant Association (AHRA) themed The New age hospitality solutions for the next generation of hoteliers organised by MAHTEC Sdn Bhd saw experts from various fields share their expertise in the ever bourgeoning hospitality industry.
A first time feature in the FHM series of exhibition was the Business-to-Business (B2B) platform which generated more than 2,000 matches and 457 on-the-spot matches between trade visitors and exhibitors. Group pavilions that were seen actively using this B2B platform included exhibitors from Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan ROC. Surveys indicated that trade visitors found this medium very effective as it helped them secure face-to-face meetings with suppliers and distributors without much hassle or interference.
Synonymous with the FHM series of exhibitions, is the Culinaire Malaysia, an event which has brought about many spicy moments to the exhibition. This years competition saw more than 1,300 participants vying for victory in some 34 categories. To demonstrate the high-standards set by the competition, 86 renowned judges from the culinary and beverage fraternity were brought in to judge the competition which saw many participants bringing their A-game to the battlefield.
After showcasing a relatively Hot and Spicy show this year, the FHM series will greet you again from 29 September - 2 October 2015 presenting you with
A Perfect Setting For Your Business ...See you again and dont forget to mark your calendar!

We believe that every event has a purpose. An exhibition like FHM2013 is a great way to meet thousands of new buyers in a short period of time. It also enables you to collect data of said buyers in order to develop quality database. We think that this is the perfect platform to launch our new products and to network with potential buyers and client, thus, giving us the opportunity not only to develop connections but also personal relationship with said buyers and clients.Mr Ron Tan, Sales Managerle bourne Sdn bhd

I think for our industry, the bakery equipment segment, FHM is probably the most relevant exhibition for us to take the opportunity to expose ourselves. Besides that, the sales leads we managed to get from our previous participation were very impressive and we are hoping for a repeat this year.Mr Alvin Tan, business Operations executive Murni Machinery.
