The 18th Food and Drinks Asia 2014
Another event of mouth-watering exposition of food and drinks and lucrative opportunities has just opened again at the World Trade Center, Manila on September 4. This was the 18th Food and Drinks Asia 2014. Almost hundreds of small and medium enterprises exhibited their best products and services to win consumers choice and potential franchisee.
Prior to the ribbon cutting ceremony and opening of doors, Sen. Sonny Angara pointed out in his speech that owning and growing a business, whether big or small, were made simpler. Government formulates game plan to deliver very good impression for the expected 700 million tourist arrival in the coming years.
The event paved an opportunity to everyone who are planning to take risk in business venture. But being a franchisee has much less risk because they would get to own a business which brand was already establish in the market. Visitors interacted with franchise owners and learn their method of success through their unique product and services. Exhibitors showcased their delicatessen, specialties, beverages, wines, spirits, kitchen equipment, POS system, and even innovated stuff like alkaline water processor.
One of the things that many visitors loved about in this event was the free tasting of food and beverages. A strategic way of influencing and capturing the consumers’ decision making is through their palate. Most of the food booths were surrounded by visitors who fingerpicked and tooth-picked small slice of food or sipped a shot of beverage that every enterprise was offering. A little bit of this and a small shot of that had definitely made one full and got out from the event satisfied.
An exciting highlight of the day was the 4th Chefs Culinary Showdown which was hosted by Hotel and Restaurants Chef Association of the Philippines (HRCAP). Four chefs – namely Chef Noel Tinana, Madelene Dupale, Jean Semillano, Judith Medina, Heidi Reodica – had their showdown of delectable cuisine while giving their best method in preparing it. Following the show was Product Presentation by First Enterprise Inc.
