Many foreign exhibitors see Hotel Asia as an opportunity to propel their hospitality products and services to the Maldives and other countries as top brands and suppliers who have excelled in the hospitality industry usually attend the exhibition. It is also known as a symposium where key players in the hotel industry worldwide interact and a platform that encourages new businesses and start-ups, especially in the Maldives. Furthermore, it’s also an arena for buyers to explore and source from recognized brands, network directly with international manufacturers whilst discovering the latest developments and trends in the market.

Hotel Asia International Culinary Challenge 2019 is one of the major attractions of the exhibition. Endorsed by WACS and recognized globally as a World Chefs Competition, this year the competition will see 670 entries from 450 Chefs competing under 22 categories.

This year, the panel will include 24 judges from over 15 different nations. The judging panel will also include Project Director Alan Palmer, a veteran Chef counting over 50 years of experience in the field. Honorary Lifetime Member of the World Association of Chefs Societies (WACS) Chef Alan Palmer isn’t a by-word on the glamour world of culinary arts, but in true spirit his name ranks up with much respect and admiration.
