INTERNATIONAL/THAILAND. Interest is surging in the Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) + Hospitality Conference & Awards, to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 12-13 September.

The awards, to be hosted at a Gala Dinner on 13 September, will culminate in the big accolade of the evening, Airport F&B Offer of the Year.

The award recognises the excellence of the overall consumer proposition and will go to the airport judged to have provided the most outstanding F&B experience of the past year. The award recognises the airport’s ambition, investment, quality, service focus, Sense of Place, transformation and performance.

As reported, nominations for both FAB Awards and FAB Superstars are now welcome through to 31 July.
