Food & Hotel Asia (FHA), a focused and comprehensive business platform for Asia’s food and hospitality industry, has received the highly esteemed ‘Special Recognition’ award at the Singapore Tourism Awards.

The ceremony presented 29 awards in four categories. The Special Recognition award honours the efforts of organisations or individuals who have made key contributions to Singapore’s tourism landscape through their creativity, innovative ideas, best practices and by the sheer significance of their contribution to the tourism sector.

This is the third award FHA is recognised for at the Singapore Tourism Awards. Previously FHA took number one spot for Best Exhibition Organiser for its editions in 2008 and 2016.

“Since its inception, FHA has continually reinvented itself to bring a platform that plays an intrinsic role in the transformation of businesses and, sets the stage for opportunities that propel the careers of future top chefs and baristas. We are very proud of this achievement as it delivers proof of our strong commitment to the industry, and that our formula to connect the food and hospitality community has been a winning one,” said Paul Wan, managing director, UBM Singapore, organiser of FHA.

“Receiving the prestigious Special Recognition Award is not possible without the shared vision of government bodies, trade associations, the F&B community, and above all, to employees who laboured behind the scenes edition after edition. This award is for everyone who played a role in creating FHA into what it is today - a highly trusted platform that delivers unforgettable experiences for global attendees,” he added.
