About the event
THE INTERNATIONAL HORECA & RETAIL SHOW
"Central-Eastern Europe has become by now an essential part of the European gastronomy scene. Year after year, new cities appear on the Michelin Guide map (recently Zagreb and Dubrovnik) and as Hungarians, we have secured our seventh star this year. We are particularly proud of the fact that for the fourth occasion, the Hungarian capital city will have the chance to host the regional event of Europe’s most significant HoReCa and Retail Show, Sirha Budapest. This marks an event not to be missed by those working in the catering industry, where the professional audience can meet the key operators of the sector and discover the latest developments of the gastronomy scene at HUNGEXPO Budapest Congress and Exhibition Center. The event is the only domestic exhibition with all the key components: gastronomy, hotel and restaurant catering, industrial kitchen appliances, food trade, baking industry and a host of other related services. One the special features of the event is that it successfully combines a traditional exhibition with professional competitions, conferences and demonstrations, where not only can the companies active in the industry present their products and services, but visitors are also provided with numerous opportunities to gain professional experience, develop their business or establish new relationships. Perhaps it’s no exaggeration to say that the reputation of Sirha Budapest was established by the European Selection of Bocuse d’Or and the Hungarian achievements at the event. There is no need to go without the Bocuse d’Or in 2020 either: the next Hungarian team to participate at the final of the world’s top cooking competition will be chosen at Sirha Budapest. I wish you all a pleasant stay, plenty of business deals and a hearty appetite!"
