We were delighted to hear that our new programs such as the THAIFEXfuture Food Experience+ and the THAIFEX Startup Zone were very well received. The future of the F&B sector is always evolving as consumers’ tastes, considerations and preferences progress, and we hope to continue refreshing and creating new programs that will deliver the ultimate trade show experience to keep attendees – even exhibitors and buyers – ahead of the curve.”
