HORECA CONNECTS will be taking place from 22-24 March at Seaside Pavilion under the theme “Building New Bridges,” providing a much-welcomed platform for hospitality professionals to reconnect and network face to face for the first time in two years.
Faithful to HORECA’s mission of bringing people together and delivering valuable business experiences, the event will include: an on-site exhibition, a series of talks, presentations and live demonstrations led by industry experts, as well as the launch of an online marketplace.
“Networking and synergizing are vital, and our aim is to work around these unusual circumstances to curate an event that fulfills our mission of bringing people together to share knowledge, learn and do business,” said Joumana Dammous Salamé, managing director of Hospitality Services, HORECA CONNECTS organizer.
