Gulfood Organiser Launches First Fine Foods Trade Exhibition in the Middle East

The first trade exhibition in the Middle East dedicated to providing the most exclusive, high-end food products sourced from all over the world will launch in Dubai in October this year, Dubai World Trade Centre announced today.

Many companies have expressed huge interest in participating at this inaugural event with pavilions from both France and Italy already on board.

The speciality food show will bring together the finest food producers to showcase the most unique, high-end, luxury food and drink products on the market. Catering to the exclusive food and hospitality sector and specialist buyers of premium produce across the Middle East, Gourmet: Speciality and Fine Food will deliver an array of indulgence and sophistication.

Taking place from 31 October – 2 November 2010 at Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre (DICEC), Gourmet: Speciality and Fine Food will offer an extraordinary selection of artisan food from caviar to wagu beef, boutique delis, bespoke provincial suppliers and international brands.

“The Middle East has a very refined culture and visitors from all over the world come to Dubai in particular for the best culinary delights,” said Trixee Loh, Senior Vice President, Dubai World Trade Centre. “We recognise the market demand from our many connections in the food industry and this speciality food show will provide an ideal platform to source the best products and services for the very top clients.”

Gourmet: Speciality and Fine Food will provide a presentation and marketing environment commensurate with leading company’s premium brand positioning.

The show will bring elite suppliers from the gourmet and luxury food market including the Halal, Seafood, Organic and Health & Wellness sectors providing a focus for specialist buyers in a refined and relaxed environment.

“Dubai is in desperate need of a Gourmet show to provide a one-stop-shop for the exclusive hotels, cafes and boutiques,” said Francesco Alfonsi, Italian Trade Commissioner. “Gulfood is the most comprehensive food and drink show in the Middle East, but Gourmet: Speciality and Fine Food will cater for a bespoke market. We are delighted Dubai World Trade Centre has launched this show and Italian companies will play an integral part of the show’s future success.”
