The SIRHA food and catering trade show plays a major role in the series of international trade exhibitions. Last time in Lyon (France) 162 000 visitors and 2 200 exhibitors participated in the biannual event.
In Hungary HUNGEXPO was given exclusive rights to organise a trade fair under the SIRHA brand. In addition to the international support we are working together with many professional partners.
In both organisation and communication METRO Hungary is one of the trade fair’s special partners. Professional partners include the Hungarian Bocuse d’Or Academy, Hungarian Tourism Zrt.’s Agricultural Marketing Centre Chief Executive Directorate, while Trade magazine is a special media partner and the official journal of SIRHA Budapest.
Minister of Rural Development Dr Sándor Fazekas is the chief patron of the event.
The SIRHA brand’s international prestige, government support, high-quality professional programmes, good timing from the food industry’s perspective and participating representatives of the trade guarantee a firm background for the trade show’s implementation.
Programmes include the Hungarian final of Bocuse d’Or, the SIRHA Budapest Dessert Competition with contribution from Zoltán Kolonics, the programmes of the Hungarian Food Industry Fair, MVI’s (Guild of Hungarian Restaurateurs) conference, the ÉLOSZ (National Association of Catering Executives) trade day and many other shows and conferences.
The trade fair’s goal isn’t only to introduce the most important actors in the industry but also to give Hungarian experts access to competitions and shows of international quality, and to create an opportunity for talented professionals to introduce themselves.
