FHV made a momentous breakthrough this year as it welcomed a total of 12,075 trade attendees which included visitors, exhibiting staff, competition judges and participants, and members of the media. The number of quality trade visitors reached 9,860 this year - an impressive 26% increase compared to 2009.
“We have sold almost all of the items that we have brought to FHV. There was a good crowd with quality buyers over the three days. We’ve had our regular customers here to support us, and have also met new customers as well. We have already booked our space for 2013!” said Ms Pamela Lin, Marketing Executive of Simplex Pte Ltd.
“We visited FHV to source for new kitchen equipment and imported beef. We were particularly interested with the USA pavilion! We also came to meet some of our current suppliers, but were also interested in getting new supplier contacts. We will come back for FHV in 2013,” said Mr Song Teng, Executive Chef of Hotel Cambodiana.
