Here are a handful of the leading professionals
who’ve already confirmed their attendance as "buyer" delegates*:
*subject to final confirmation of supplier profile.
The "Buyer" audience at the event will be composed of 75-100 senior F&B product specifiers from renowned hotel and restaurant groups, catering / foodservice companies and supermarket chains operating in the Middle East.
Typical job functions will be Directors / Heads of Procurement; Heads / Directors of Kitchens / Culinary / F&B and Executive Chefs, who will be travelling in to the event from the UAE, KSA, Bahrain, Lebanon, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman and Egypt.
These buyers have all been carefully selected and interviewed to profile their procurement priorities, requirements and budgets. These are the type of top-level product specifiers that don’t often attend typical tradeshows, but view The F&B Summit as an invaluable tool to meet and initiate ongoing partnerships with appropriate suppliers.
We profile each buyer delegate’s procurement priorities before we confirm their place at the event, detailing the quality, price, volume and frequency that they require different F&B products in.
This information is then used to identify and select 75-100 regional and international F&B suppliers who fit these requirements, who are also interviewed to identify their existing client bases, market access and general capabilities. These will include F&B producers, manufacturers, importers, distributors and agents.
In short, we only admit capable, high-quality suppliers to the event to meet motivated and pre-qualified buyers - absolutely no timewasters or junior staff are allowed.
The F&B Summit will be staged at the 5-Star "Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort & Spa" just outside of Muscat. This luxurious venue has been selected for its quality, its convenience (with the buyer audience travelling in from across the GCC) as well as its layout and seclusion: The F&B Summit will be taking over a large section of the resort with all activities & functions taking place on-site.
