Incentives whet appetite for food expo in Seoul

Major Korean food expo, Coex Food Week, is offering incentives for overseas exhibitors and buyers.

The show is expected to attract 60,000 buyers from South Korea and abroad when it runs 20-23 November 2019 in the Coex centre in Seoul.

Since its launch in 2006, Coex Food Week has grown to become Korea’s leading tradeshow for the global food and beverage industry. In 2018, Coex Food Week saw participation from 846 exhibitors across 1,717 stands, and more than 40,000 local and overseas buyers and visitors.

Application for the 2019 expo is now open and there will be several National Pavilions with incentives and special rates for overseas exhibitors.

Core themes for the 2019 edition include food tech, food packaging, local ingredients, health ingredients, farmed foods, and baked goods. The exhibition will spread across all four of Coex’s exhibition halls, with provincial items and international pavilions in Hall A, HMR and packaging products in Hall B, the Seoul International Bakery Show in Hall C, and a beer and beverage festival in Hall D. The expo also includes concurrent seminars and workshops, and biz-matching meetings.

The Seoul International Bakery Festival, or SIBA, in Hall C, is Korea’s largest biannual expo for the industry, and includes a live baking contest.

Incentives for buyers attending Coex Food Week in 2019 include three nights of complimentary accommodation, interpretation service, participation in pre-organised biz-matching sessions, and a buyers’ kit.
