FHA show wins Singapore Tourism Board’s ‘special recognition’ award

Food&HotelAsia (FHA), a focused and comprehensive business platform geared for Asia’s food and hospitality industry, received a highly esteemed Special Recognition award from the Singapore Tourism Awards (STA), organised by the Singapore Tourism Board.
The Special Recognition award honours the efforts of organisations or individuals who have made key contributions to Singapore's tourism landscape through their “creativity, innovative ideas, best practices and by the sheer significance” of their contribution to the tourism sector.

This is the third award FHA is recognised for at the Singapore Tourism Awards. Previously FHA took number one spot for Best Exhibition Organiser for its editions in 2008 and 2016.
"Since its inception FHA has continually reinvented itself to bring a platform that plays an intrinsic role in the transformation of businesses and, sets the stage for opportunities that propel the careers of future top chefs and baristas,” said Paul Wan, managing director, UBM Singapore, organiser of FHA.
“We are very proud of this achievement as it delivers proof of our strong commitment to the industry, and that our formula to connect the food and hospitality community has been a winning one.”
With 40 years of experience, FHA organiser UBM Singapore said the show has amassed recognition worldwide for being an authority and trendsetter for the food and hospitality markets in Asia. First started in a car park in 1978, FHA grew in depth and breadth, fully occupying all 10 halls of Singapore Expo by 2014. In an Economic Impact Assessment study of FHA, the event's 2016 edition generated an overall revenue of S$244 million (US$177 million), of which 74% was foreign revenue, to the Singapore economy. 
Last year, FHA marked its Ruby Jubilee with a record-breaking attendance of more than 80,000 industry professionals from 105 countries and regions.
