Oman’s biggest annual food and hospitality event

25 May 2017

Ammar Ahmad, exhibition director, says “OCEC is now the country’s newest hub for business events.  With business opportunities in the food and hospitality sector in Oman growing steadily in recent years, OCEC is just the best platform for this event, providing a total space area of more than 22,000 sqm to accommodate leading companies and emerging business entities from Oman and around the region.” 

Food & Hospitality Oman will showcase a wide spectrum of cutting-edge food and beverage technologies and services catering to the food and hospitality sector, hosting over 500 local and international brands looking to tap into the country’s growing food and hospitality markets; generate better business leads; forge business tie-ups and learn more about the industry’s developments and its current and forthcoming trends.

“The high turnout of international and local suppliers and potential buyers in last year’s edition demonstrated the enormous potential of the food and hospitality exhibition. With the same high-quality standards and higher investments, along with well-thought out strategies to promote the food event globally, thus year’s event will certainly be a bigger platform that will help shape the future of the industry,” Ahmad adds.


Alongside the food and hospitality exhibition is the Food Safety Oman Conference, which after its inaugural success last year, has incited interest among the food safety experts, policy makers and industry stakeholders. It will, once again, bring in experts from food and beverage (F&B) manufacturers, importers, producers, retailers, catering and restaurant service providers, packaging and processing technology providers, vendors and government representatives and other food safety professionals to discuss the latest policies, regulations, innovative approaches and technological advancements relating to food safety and quality in the Sultanate.
