CANADA. Leading travel services group Autogrill and its food & beverage division HMSHost have been named as Platinum Sponsors of the sixth annual Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Conference and Awards, which take place in Toronto on 21-23 June. Autogrill and HMSHost will also sponsor the Opening Cocktail at the event.
FAB, which is dedicated to travel-related food & beverage, attracts senior representatives from the world’s leading airports and F&B concessionaires to network with their industry colleagues, share best practice and insights in this fast-growing sector. The event is organised by The Moodie Davitt Report and hosted by Toronto Pearson International Airport.
HMSHost President and CEO Steve Johnson said: “We are very excited to welcome the FAB Conference and Awards to Toronto this year, and to introduce some of North America’s airport food & beverage trends and offerings to conference attendees, in addition to the innovative initiatives the industry is doing around the globe.
“We look forward to sharing best practices, connecting with our airport partners and making new contacts, all in the spirit of continuing to enhance the traveller experience in the airports in which we do business together. HMSHost and Autogrill look forward to welcoming you to this year’s conference opening reception.”
The Opening Cocktail is traditionally among the big highlights of the FAB programme. At last year’s welcome event in Geneva, Autogrill and HMSHost entertained guests at the exceptional Le Chef restaurant at Geneva Airport – and the companies pledge to provide another memorable evening in Toronto on 21 June. We’ll bring you further details soon.
Hotel and registration details will be revealed in coming days, as will FAB Award categories, entry procedures and the deadline for submissions.
