In conjunction with the booming tourism and food and beverages (F&B) industry in Siem Reap, the gateway to the Angkor is set to host the international exhibition, ANGKORFOOD + HOTEL 2019, from 10-12 October 2019 at the Sokha Resort and Convention Center.
The mega-scale event, hosted by the Cambodia Tourism Federation and the Cambodia Chef Association, is expected to draw over 4,000 trade visitors and buyers representing hotels, restaurants, caterers, cafes, pubs, clubs, supermarkets and food retailers and distributors.
One of the main highlights will be the Cambodia Culinary Competition which will see the winners representing the Kingdom in other prestigious competitions on a global platform.
Sanctioned by the World Association of Chefs Societies, it will provide talented Cambodian chefs the opportunity to compete at the highest level.
