India International Hospitality Expo 2018 concluded successfully

India International Hospitality Expo (IHE 18) started out with a grand vision – to become the Biggest Hospitality Show in Asia. As the curtain falls on the first chapter of India’s largest sourcing hub for hospitality, retail, baking, housekeeping and F&B industry, it can be proudly said that they are on the right path of making hospitality industry a catalyst for economic growth in our country. Inauguration by esteemed Smt. Harsimrat Kaur Badal (Union Minister for Food Processing Industries, Government of India) with the guest of honour as Amit Burman (Vice Chairman, Dabur India Ltd and Chairman, Lite Bite Foods Pvt Ltd); felicitation of Sahibzada Syed Habib-Ur-Rehman (Non-Executive Independent Director, ITC Limited) and the Banaras Evening curated by Sunil Sethi Design Alliance and Chef Manjit Gill – IHE 18 (with over 200 exhibitors and over 8,000 visitors) left an indelible mark in its first chapter.

Harsimrat Kaur Badal said “The Government of India is aiming to achieve one per cent share in world’s international tourist arrivals by 2020, and two per cent share by 2025, and we need such platforms that can act as a trailblazer for the hospitality industry in the country. I wish India Expo Centre & Mart, as well as IHE 18, the very best in their vision to create the top hospitality show in Asia.”

Being true to their vision, IHE 18 along with its stellar board of industry stalwarts with over 40+ years of experience in the hospitality industry turned out to be a powerful networking forum. This show played a host to celebrated influencers such as CEOs, GMs, executive chefs, hotel-chain owners, F&B managers, HODs of engineering, housekeeping and purchase function, distributors/wholesalers, procurement managers, designers, the all-important frontline hospitality personnel’s, and many more.

There were also different sessions of culinary theatre curated by Celebrity Chef Davinder Kumar that had Chef Gunjan Goela (Vegetarian Food Consultant),  Chef Gautam Chaudhary (Director – Demiurgic Hospitality), Chef Abhishek Basu (Executive Chef – The Park, New Delhi), Chef Nishant Chobey (CEO – Swad Samudra Pvt. Ltd.), and Mr. Kama Laksh (Bar & Beverages consultant). IHE Coneferences,  a conclave spanned over 4 days that had industry leaders sharing their knowledge and experiences with the hospitality fraternity, has its final session on ‘Opportunities for Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy in Wellness Tourism’. The esteemed guests were Dr. Ishwara (Acharya, Jt. Advisor – Yoga, Ministry of AYUSH, Govt. of India) and Dr. Rajesh Kumar Singh (Director, Sammati Naturopathic WellBeing Centre).

India International Hospitality Expo will be back next year – IHE 19 – with a bigger, better and an even grander show.
