Queensland to Host Two Dedicated Food Events in 2016
The ongoing strength of Queensland’s food industry has resulted in the announcement of two state specific food events to take place in 2016, both to be staged by Diversified Communications, leaders in food industry events. Food Technology Queensland (Foodtech Queensland) and Fine Food Queensland will both bring the best of international and national food trends to the sunshine state, where the food and beverage sectors are one of the largest employers and considered an industry leader.
Taking place in April, Fine Food Queensland will return to Brisbane with a fresh face – literally. Considered the state’s premier food trade event, the 2016 show will have a core focus on fresh, healthy options for industry professionals, and a strong local feel. Extensive research into both the event and the market has driven the shift in focus for the show, and promises real business opportunities for Queensland’s foodservice, hospitality and food retail industries.
A new event for the state’s food manufacturing industry, Foodtech Queensland will launch at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on 26 – 28 June, and will focus specifically on the state’s strongest food manufacturing categories. Serving to connect businesses in these areas with new technology and ideas to help them grow their operations, the event will co-locate with The Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST)’s 49th Annual Convention, which attracts up to 400 food technologists and other food professionals.
Covering all facets of the foodservice industry, Diversified Communications’ two Queensland events have been carefully developed to respond to the specific needs of Queensland’s relevant industries. As a result, tailored education sessions will form a key part of the 2016 event schedules, as will the translation of relevant national and international trends to local circumstances. With combined visitor numbers of over 8,000, Fine Food Queensland and Foodtech Queensland provide the perfect opportunity for those in foodservice and hospitality to learn, network and grow their businesses.
Apart from the two events in Queensland, Fine Food Australia will return to Melbourne from 12-15 September 2016 at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. Save the date now!
