Hospo Hui scheduled for 2023 Fine Food NZ exhibition

Fine Food New Zealand, the largest trade only event in the country for the foodservice, hospitality and food retail industries returns to Auckland on June 25-27.

From top quality food and drink ingredients to kitchen equipment and technology solutions, everything you need to upgrade your business will be on display. This year the Restaurant Association of New Zealand will host its Hospo Hui at the show.

Marisa Bidois, CEO of the Restaurant Association of New Zealand.

Over 200 exhibitors, expert seminars, trade deals, networking opportunities will be available at the show.

Hospo Hui brings together leaders, thinkers and innovators to share thoughts and ideas on how to pave a sustainable hospitality industry for Aotearoa.

Through speaker and panel discussions the event will offer a valuable insight into the ideas that are shaping the hospitality industry today. By bringing together leading restaurateurs, operators, chefs and thought leaders the event will also offer a rare chance to network with the industry’s finest – and provide a forum for discussion and innovation.

Restaurant Association CEO Marisa Bidois says “This is a must attend event for anyone in our industry but also for anyone with a passion for food, drink and innovation. There will be something on offer for everyone in the food and drink industry, irrespective of whether you work for a brand restaurant or cafe, bar, retailer, supplier, manufacturer, or hotel.

“The aim of this event is to bring together like-minded people from all walks of our industry, and provide a unique platform for information-sharing and inspiration.”

Rebecca Stewart, General Manager XPO Exhibitions adds “XPO Exhibitions is pleased to announce its partnership with the Restaurant Association to co-locate Fine Food New Zealand, the country’s most comprehensive trade exhibition for the hospitality, food service, and food retail industries, with the Hospo Hui, a thought-provoking and inspiring summit for the hospitality sector.

“By combining these events, we aim to provide a complete industry solution that supports learning, education, and business development.

“Attendees will have the opportunity to visit over 200 exhibiting companies at Fine Food New Zealand while also engaging in the full range of Hospo Hui content – it could prove to be the most beneficial day out of the year!

“We look forward to presenting the 2023 edition of Fine Food New Zealand and the Hospo Hui, which comes at a crucial time to help address the challenges faced by the industry.”
