FoodHospitality World will be held in China in November, than in India in January 2013 and in Brazil in March 2013.
“We strongly believe in Macef and FoodHospitalityWorld”
said Enrico Pazzali, CEO at Fiera Milano. “These are excellent initiatives, which not by chance have aroused great interest in our international partners. For Macef, Brazil is the country which, among the emerging ones, mostly appreciates Made-in-Italy brands. Home décor retail trade in Brazil grew by 21% from 2006 to 2011. On the crest of the wave of highly increasing tourism demand, India is creating reception facilities and services, whose standards are increasingly higher. The food market is also recording growth, according to forecast Indian net imports will significantly grow in the next years. Food Hospitality World will effectively meet the needs of this increasingly demanding market”.
