Why should a hotel executive chef visit?

• Inspiration
There’s a lot at the show for executive chefs to gain ideas and inspiration from. Be inspired by Gulfood live events.

• Education
This is your chance to learn about the latest products, services and innovations being developed within every sector of the industry — there are over 4500 exhibitors this year, and a lot to take in. Five days may not be enough!
