FHA-HoReCa to resume from 10-13 May 2022

Singapore, 14 May 2020 – Informa Markets has announced today that the 2020 edition of FHA-HoReCa, one of the world’s leading industry events serving the hotel, restaurant and café sectors, will be cancelled given the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic being felt throughout the global hospitality and tourism industries. The event will resume in 10-13 May 2022 at the Singapore EXPO & MAX Atria.

It is heartening to see positive signs that recovery has started in some domestic markets, however it will be a while longer before a full rebound of the international hospitality and tourism sectors can materialise. The decision to cancel was a tough one to make, but without suitable tenancy availability in the correct time period for the industry, this is very much the right decision for our customers.

We will take this extra time to develop the next edition of FHA-HoReCa into one that will more than make up for its absence this year. Also, during this period we are working closely with key partners to create alternative ways for our global community to still get together and connect, unlock business opportunities and gain access to content during this unprecedented time where live experiences seem unattainable.

The FHA team will contact all exhibitors, visitors and partners to discuss and plan for their future participation in FHA-HoReCa 2022.

FHA-HoReCa’s sister show, FHA-Food & Beverage, will be held from 2-5 March 2021 at the Singapore Expo as planned.

We would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding, and we look forward to catching up with everyone in-person at FHA-HoReCa 2022!

Yours sincerely,

Martyn Cox
Event Director | Hospitality, Food & Beverage – Singapore
