Is Asia's Culinary Capitol Ready for a Tsunami of Food Innovation?

With 40 million visitors each year, some of the world's biggest F&B and hospitality shows and conferences, and many of the finest restaurants in the world, there is arguably no place on earth where great food (and wine!) and the F&B industry is more valued than in our great city, Hong Kong. At the same time, anyone who has visited New York, San Francisco, Tokyo or London recently, can't help but notice there is a massive wave of global innovation in the F&B industry happening in front of our very eyes. Creativity, an ever deeper pool of talented and sophisticated artisans and professionals, new schools of thought and rapid adoption of technology are increasingly impacting how and where food is produced, transported, prepared, marketed, ordered, delivered and served. Change is rapidly upon us but are we ready???

Our first ever dedicated event on food innovation will be held on Saturday, November 21st at the HK Poly University School of Hotel Management in Hung Hom. We will spend a thought provoking day with leading experts, industry leaders and professionals on food production, philosophy, preparation and enabling technologies and trends. If you are a TEDxHongKong foodie, this event can't be missed!
