​Celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2020, Gulfood is one of the world’s biggest food and beverage (F&B) trade exhibitions. The 2019 edition was the largest to date, with more than 100,000 visitors from over 200 countries.

Over three days, multiple new partnerships, investments and multi-billion-dollar export deals were sealed, as attendees networked, explored the latest F&B products and shared innovations in tech and retail. This year, the show also features an annual Startup Programme to match-make F&B innovators and global investors, and a series of talks and workshops through the Innovation Summit.

Alongside this commercial core, Gulfood is also a multi-sensory, festival-style event, showcasing creativity and culinary excellence. Popular features returning for 2020 include Barbecue Masters and the Gulfood International Culinary League, a one-day competition that debuted last year, pitting four teams of world-renowned chefs, representing the cuisines of Asia, Europe, America, and the Middle East and North Africa.
