Hello foodies, welcome back to The Hungry Doctor! Today’s post will be slightly different because I’m not doing a review but will share some exciting news on one of most exciting food and beverage events in Asia! What do you have in mind when think about a food festival? I’m sure most of you would think about many food joints selling new food creations and products, street food vendors, and new food ventures. This one is different – it’s Restaurant Pub and Bar Asia (RPB) and Speciality & Fine Food Asia (SFFA)! Seriously, I can’t wait!
RPB Asia and SFFA will be held from 17-19 July 2018 at Suntec Singapore. Yes! The event is coming up in just a few days! Let me introduce you to RPB Asia where you can source the latest most interesting products and meet restaurant, pub and bar owners and operators from Southeast Asia. This will be an exciting foray into the world of high-end restaurant, pub, and bar owners and operators who are constantly on the lookout for new innovative products to excite their customers; trendsetters who dare to defy convention and push boundaries in the quest for excellence; entrepreneurs who define success on their own terms.

Following last year’s success, RPB Asia 2018 is being held for the second time this year. In 2017, they got 161 exhibitors from 23 countries; 5 national pavilions; 2,939 visitors; 25 leading chefs, bartenders, sommeliers, baristas, and tea masters at Fine Food Live and Centre Stage demo theatres; 19 panelists and business mentors. Crazy right?
Here are some statistics from last year’s event
RPB Asia 2018 will have many event attractions. At centre stage, you’ll get to see masterclasses, competitions and demos by leading sommeliers, bartenders and tea masters from the region, while the Start-Up Village is a dedicated zone for companies trading for less than 3 years in Singapore. Brimming with creativity, passion and entrepreneurial flair, this is a must visit section to discover the latest and most innovative brands in the market. After that, you can pay a visit to technology zone and business forums. I’ll spare you the details, experience it yourself at the show;)
Now, let’s move on to Speciality & Fine Food Asia!
While RPB Asia focuses on the restaurant, pub and bar industry, SFFA concentrates on bringing together the best artisanal, gourmet and fine food retailers, restaurateurs, chefs, buyers and distributors in Southeast Asia. Following the yearly show in London which has been going on for 18 years, it is now in its second year as the Asian edition of the UK’s market-leading trade show. The fair has become the go-to show for all those supplying gourmet food and drink to discerning buyers from the retail, wholesale and foodservice industries.
Buyers have come to rely upon the fair as an exclusive opportunity for discovery and inspiration, where they are guaranteed to find delicious artisanal products while celebrating the diversity today’s producers create.
SFFA is specially curated for artisan, gourmet and premium food producers and suppliers, offering the best platform to elevate your brand. It also provides unrivalled opportunities to explore the world of fine food and drink, and discover new products and ideas to elevate your business.
