More than 60 high profile speakers take to the floor to share their proven methods for navigating the latest shifts in local and regional Foodservice.

Mr. Vishal Pandey, Founder, Data On-A-Plate and Middle East Food Forum said, “Our interests are tailored towards an upward trajectory in the growth of the HORECA and F&B segment, especially for fledgling businesses and owners. MEFF’s network of high net-worth influencers and industry giants comes together each year to bring its vast pool of local as well as global knowledge to create an atmosphere of learning and development. We are as excited about what new and improved solutions will be highlighted at this year’s Restaurant Development Conference as we were the first time.”
