WHY

INFLAVOUR?

InFlavour is for F&B trade, learning, and unique food experiences.

Meet directly with local and international decision-makers across three days to secure new deals in Q4.

Take home proven strategies to increase business efficiency, reduce costs and implement niche consumer trends relevant to your business.

Connect with hundreds of suppliers and experts in food production, supply chain, HoReCa, process & packaging, manufacturing, ingredients, and food technology.

Celebrate food in between business meetings at Flavourfest, the Chef's Arena or the Kingdom of Flavours!

THIS IS F&B's MOST EXCITING EVENT.

BACKED BY THE SAUDI GOVERNMENT.

Across three days at InFlavour, F&B trade professionals will network with thousands of visitors, 200+ speakers and over 400 brands, as well as 200+ international investors and VCs with a specific interest in food and hospitality.

It’s no coincidence that InFlavour is in Riyadh. Now is the time to build your network in Saudi Arabia – it’s the Middle East’s largest economy (and one of the top 20 in the world) and it’s projected to grow as much as 8% every year until 2027, spurred on by the Saudi Vision 2030.

When you take your seat at the InFlavour table, we invite you to share the biggest challenges you’re facing right now. Because knowledge-sharing and collaboration is key to overcoming them.

F&B EXPERTS WILL EXPLORE

SOLUTIONS TO PROBLEMS

INCLUDING:

How to meaningfully contribute to food security in an increasingly precarious world

How to implement new technology  – and stay at the forefront of fast-moving food technology developments

Strategies to increase efficiency and drive down costs – to increase resilience against geo-political supply chain changes and economic inflation

How to take more control of data and inventory tracking – by leveraging the global presence of suppliers and investors

We want you to get (almost) as much from InFlavour online as you do on the ground in Riyadh. So consider our content hub your go-to space to understand the latest trends in F&B and dig into fresh perspectives on consumer behaviour and regional legislation.
