Food and Hotel China Food Show Plus!

When: November 12-15, 2018
Where: Shanghai, China

Consumer food service saw dynamic growth for the last five years as a whole, underpinned by a number of factors, but particularly by rising income levels. China’s strong economic growth during the review period resulted in an increasingly affluent consumer base. In addition, ongoing urbanization not only offered consumers greater access to consumer food service but also resulted in busier lifestyles. This boosted demand for convenience and thus also for consumer food service. Our custom services make exhibiting internationally easy, so you can focus on selling product!
