As Lebanon’s largest hospitality and foodservice exhibition, HORECA Lebanon is set to return to Beirut’s Seaside Arena in just a few months’ time. Here’s what to expect.
Established almost 30 years ago, HORECA Lebanon is set to mark its 27th edition from April 25-28, 2023. Despite a two-year hiatus, the trade show is now expected to welcome thousands of professionals once again.
More than 150 exhibitors will be present to showcase their products, services and technologies to 12,000 trade visitors, who will be heading to Beirut from across the region to network and forge valuable business partnerships.
“We are thrilled to be back at Seaside Pavilion with a strong message for the industry — ‘Connect. Inspire. Explore.’ We want those who attend HORECA Lebanon to inspire and be inspired, as the future of the hospitality world is ours to shape," says Joumana Dammous-Salame, managing director of Hospitality Services, the event organizer.
Besides the exhibition area — dedicated to food, drink, catering equipment, tableware and hygiene solutions, as well as packaging, labeling and other hospitality-related products and services — HORECA Lebanon will feature several events. These include the HORECA Theater, where leading brands will host product demonstrations; Salon Culinaire, featuring cooking workshops and competitions; the Lebanese Bartenders Competition, which will include masterclasses with the experts; and Lebanese Barista Competition.
Elsewhere, HORECA Talks returns to the scene for another series of roundtable discussions with industry leaders, which will dive deep into hot topics such as accommodation trends, technology, business opportunities and challenges in 2023.
