Preparations underway for Gulfood’s 28th edition

Gulfood, the world’s largest F&B and hospitality show, is set to host its 28th edition from February 20-24, 2023.

Driving creativity and change, the forthcoming edition will continue to unite food and beverage communities in Dubai and act as a springboard for new ideas.

Returning to Dubai World Trade Centre, the renowned event will bring together more than 4,000 companies from 120 countries. An impressive line-up of industry thought leaders and top chefs from around the world will be present to share their know-how and chart the way forward.

Established in 1987 as a dedicated platform for imported products, Gulfood has significant grown over the past decade. While the primary finished foods event attracts over 5,000 exhibitors and 90,000 visitors per year, a series of sector-specific spin-offs have seen the Gulfood brand expand, with dedicated platforms for manufacturing, hospitality equipment, confectioneries, seafood and gourmet products.

The show’s evolution has run in parallel with widespread transformation of the F&B industry. With robust participation from national trade entities, government-backed industry bodies and more than 120 country pavilions representing six continents, Gulfood has consolidated its position at the forefront of the industry.

Maintaining this momentum, the five-day trade show will highlight the latest innovations, disruptive trends and visionary products in eight primary show sectors: beverages, dairy, fats and oils, health, wellness and free-from, meat and poultry, power brands, pulses, grains and cereals and world food.

Gulfood will, once again, look toward the future of food and address what matters with industry experts. Indeed, the show will explore a range of topics that are built around five central pillars: markets, lifestyle, government, technology and marketing.
