Autumn Food Series Meetings Programme will create efficient networking by pairing exhibitors with visitors.

Exhibitors and visitors to GulfHost and the Autumn Food Shows 2018 will be able to create personalised partnerships and efficient networks with the launch of a matchmaking platform, created by show organisers Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC.)

The Autumn Food Series Meeting Programme will run across GulfHost, The Speciality Food Festival, SEAFEX, and yummex Middle East, which will take place from October 30—November 1, 2018, at DWTC.

The tailored platform provides registered exhibitors and visitors with access to the complementary online networking tool that enables them to search through thousands of contacts and book potential deal-making meetings onsite with new business contacts across all four food shows.

The carefully designed platform gives registered visitors and exhibitors access to a host of local, regional, and international industry professionals, allowing for quick connections.

The 2018 DWTC bespoke food shows also include an added feature for exhibitors and buyers. A newly-created RFP search tool allows registered exhibitors to arrange meetings with targeted buyers faster and easier online.

Qualified key buyers can post their exact requirements, resulting in more relevant business opportunities for both buyers and exhibitors.

Only registered users for the show will be eligible for access to the Autumn Food Series Meeting Programme and only registered exhibitors and buyers can access the RFP search tool.
