The Moodie Davitt Report is delighted to announce that the 2024 Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) + Hospitality Conference and Awards will be staged in California, USA. Ontario International Airport will host the event on 25-26 June, with the venue to be confirmed.
Fast-growing Ontario International Airport is located two miles east of downtown Ontario, in San Bernardino County, California and about 38 miles east of downtown Los Angeles.
The June timing marks a return to the conference’s traditional mid-year scheduling it enjoyed from 2011 through the last FAB in Dallas in 2019 before the pandemic forced a four-year suspension of the face-to-face format. Our signature FAB Awards, alongside FAB Superstars, will return in an in-person format once again.
Ontario International Airport Authority CEO Atif Elkadi said: “Ontario International Airport is honoured to host FAB 2024. We look forward to attendees from around the world having the opportunity to enjoy the ‘SoCal, So Easy’ experience that has made ONT the airport of choice for millions of Southern Californians. We also can’t wait to share all that our dynamic region has to offer.”
Martin Moodie said: “FAB has truly come back with a bang this year in Thailand and we are delighted to follow our appearance in this great country with a return to the United States at Ontario International Airport next year.
“We are proud to showcase airport and wider travel world’s most exciting sectors, travel food & beverage and hospitality, on US turf, which is a hotbed of airport F&B development.”
