THAILAND/INTERNATIONAL. Leading international travel food & beverage provider SSP has become a Platinum Partner at the Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) + Hospitality Conference & Awards, run by The Moodie Davit Report, to be held in Bangkok, Thailand on 12-13 September.

As reported, FAB makes a welcome return in 2023 after a four-year absence due to the pandemic.

The event is dedicated to the burgeoning world of airport food & beverage as well as (for the first time) other airport hospitality services, including lounges and hotels.

SSP Chief Executive Officer Patrick Coveney said: “We are delighted to be supporting this year’s FAB Conference and Awards as a Platinum Sponsor, particularly given this year’s exciting location.

“Asia has always been an important geography for SSP, and it’s great to see the region returning to strength as a driver of the global travel F&B market.

“We first began trading in Bangkok in 1995 under a successful joint venture partnership with Minor Food Group, and since then our business has grown significantly, operating 80 units at nine airports and employing around 1,300 colleagues.

The Moodie Davitt Report Founder & Chairman Martin Moodie said, “We are delighted and honoured to welcome back SSP, a perennial partner of the event since its launch in 2011, to FAB 2023.

“As Patrick Coveney well notes, the resurgence of airport F&B in Asia Pacific is particularly encouraging. The timing and location of this year’s FAB is therefore particularly important and appropriate.

“Airport food & beverage is playing a crucial role for airports, operators and consumers amid the global travel recovery and we are excited to celebrate that role during an event that makes such a welcome return after a four-year absence.” ✈

SSP has been a perennial supporter of FAB since the inaugural event held so memorably underneath a British Airways Concorde at Manchester Airport in January 2011 (pictured above and below)
