Leaders Speak

It is a brilliant expo and you get in touch with suppliers with new products catering to the multiple segments in hospitality over here. As for us as hoteliers, we not only get to interact with other experts of the industry but also other vendors. It is a great initiative that has been taken by Express Food & Hospitality.

Dev MohantyGeneral Manager,The Zuri Whitefield Bengaluru

The size of the expo and the entire scale is tremendous. My team is really looking forward to spend some time at the expo to explore the new products that are on offer here. Our team would be attending the expo looking at the various aspects of hoteliering that EF&H has put up.

George Kuruvilla,General Manager,Radisson Blu Atria Bengaluru

We had a fruitful discussion and there was a lot of insights that we GMs shared with each other. Coming to the expo, there is lot of participation of companies who have showcased their products & competitions. From Conrad Bengaluru, we won two silver prizes in GICC so I am also happy for my team. Overall good experience by the Indian Express Group.

Srijan Vadhera,General Manager,Conrad Bengaluru

I went around the expo and I think there are some great products on display. It is important for us as organisations to get in touch with what is there in the market to offer. The discussion also was very interesting. Got to hear the perspectives of people representing multiple organisations across categories of hotels. The expo is going to be of a great benefit and learning for the city and hospitality industry of Bengaluru.

Amaan Kidwai,General Manager,ITC Gardenia Bengaluru

It has been a great experience at the EF&H Expo. The discussion on organic food is very important as how chefs will mould the society and the guests to consume organic food and how sustainable practices will help curb food wastage.

Chef Praveen Shetty,Executive Chef, Conrad Bengaluru

It was nice to meet people and share views with them about the organic market in Bengaluru. The word should spread around about organic food and produce. We need to get back to our roots and bring the right kind of food to the people is what we have voiced in the panel discussion embracing the essentiality of promoting organic produce at the Express Food & Hospitality Expo.

Chef Uchit Vohra,Executive Chef, ITC Gardenia

Express Food and Hospitality Expo has been a leading show and a platform for the hotels, restaurants and food services industry and year on year it has been working very closely with the industry and the chefs to bring the best as far as F&B is concerned. It helps us a lot to learn about the new products, trends in the space.

Chef Abhijit Saha,Co-founder, Director & Chef, Avant Garde Hospitality

The EF&H Expo is a really good platform for hoteliers like us to connect with the vendors. A lot of trends and equipment providers are visible in the Expo. We are definitely looking forward to participate in the further shows organised by EF&H as well.

Mitesh Narula,Cluster General Manager, Keys Select Hotel Hosur Road

It was really nice to participate in the panel discussion on the topic Technology in Procurement. It was a very good session wherein we learned a lot of new things about how other organisations are using technology in procurement processes. Also about the Expo, the presentation of stalls and other competitions including GICC in association with SICA, the show looks and feels very elegant for culinary experience and also for prospective buyers seeking good products for their businesses.

The panel discussion was very enthusiastic and even enlightening. At the Expo, we can find various different brands which are also coming up and which have a good name in the market, so this Expo has been very successful.

The Goa edition of Express Food & Hospitality is very good. All the hoteliers are here, but the kind of infrastructure and spread of exhibitors here is something to be really appreciated. With a diverse spread of exhibitors including food, linen and furnishing brands, it is a crucial venue for decision makers to visit this exhibition.

Hasanullah,Regional Manager & Hotel General Manager, Lemon Tree Amarante Beach Resort, Goa

The Express Food & Hospitality Exhibition is a lovely place to be and we had a wonderful session on discussing 'Sustainable Housekeeping Solutions' in the state. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to be a part of the knowledge session.

Renjith Paul, Executive House Keeper, Azaya Beach Resort Goa

Being invited for the GMs Conclave here at The Express Food & Hospitality Exhibition in Goa, I must say it was an interesting session and most of us focussed on one thing that is protecting the tourism in Goa and ensuring that it is not being exploited and also ensuring that we do have the infrastructure to meet the rising demands of the tourism industry seeing that Goa is a potential destination for MICE and weddings.

Pracilo D'silva, Resident Manager, Resort Rio

It was a good experience overall at the Express Food & Hospitality Tradeshow in Goa. It gives a good platform to help hoteliers understand the vendors and to look at their new products on offer. A lot of purchase managers should visit the show to witness the products showcased here.

Nandkishor Kothamkar,Purchase Manager, Le Meridien Goa Calangute

We have been in the catering business since the last 30 years and have seen all the changes that the HoReCa segment has seen over the years. Having visited the Express Food & Hospitality Exhibition, we found it to be very useful as we found the right prospective partners to help keep us on track to meet the current trends in hospitality industry. We would recommend our fellow caterers to come and visit the exhibition to witness the spread of unique offerings by the exhibitors.

The Exhibition was superb, offering innovative products. Very nice to have this kind of exhibition in Goa.

Rony Rogrigues,Materials Manager, Vivanta Panaji, Goa

The Express Food & Hospitality Tradeshow in Goa is a great platform for knowledge sessions like Power of Purchase wherein we could speak to our colleagues about the current scenario of procurement in Goa and going forward how all the purchase managers of hotels can come together to solve the shortcomings in materials procurement in Goa.

Constancio Gonsalves, Purchase Manager, Taj, North Goa

It was really nice to come here at the Express Food & Hospitality Exhibition and listen to all the thoughts of housekeepers at other hotels in Goa about the sustainability approaches which they have taken to educate both associates and the guests, and ways to reduce waste and save environment.

Vijay Joshi,Executive House Keeper, Vivanta Goa Panaji

Housekeeping is at the frontline of any hotel business, both in terms of their contact with guests and their presentation of rooms for guest appreciation. But, their role in creating a sustainable hotel is often overlooked. In the panel discussion on 'Sustainable Housekeeping Solutions', we looked at how staff can be trained to help boost a hotel's environmental performance.

Shailesh Mordekar,Executive House Keeper, Taj Holiday Village Resort & Spa, Goa

The Express Food & Hospitality Exhibition here in Goa has been a very professionally organised one. We had a very interesting discussion on the topic concerning tourism in Goa and we have taken the opportunity to move around the stalls here. We have met with quite a few vendors who have got interesting products. From a hospitality point of view, it is a good opportunity for people related to the hotel industry to come by and have a look at the exhibition.

Shridhar Nair,General Manager, The Leela Goa

It was nice to be here at the exhibition and to interact with my colleagues from other hotels.

Sanju Shirodkar,Purchase Manager, The Leela Goa

I run World Flair Association and now I travel to Goa for several purposes and competitions. The Mixology Championship held here at the Express Food & Hospitality Exhibition in Goa was really amazing. I got a chance for the competition and it was a great experience for us. Although I couldn't do well now, I will practise and do well in the next edition of the Mixology Championship.
