The second annual International Hospitality Forum will be held between 15 and 17 October 2002 at Zara Expo in Amman. IHF<.> 2002 is officially supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the Jordan Tourism Board, the Jordan Hotel Association and the Jordan Restaurant Association.

Exhibitors have already booked over 85% of the show and it is likely that the total exhibition space will be filled up much ahead of time. More than 100 companies will be exhibiting. Many brands will be represented directly or through their agents says Vahe Mekhssian sales representative at Hospitality Services in Beirut.

Seminars, workshops, meetings and competitions related to tourism, hospitality and the food service sector will gather all the key players of the hospitality and foodservice industries in Jordan. One seminar will tackle the Key Success Factors in the Restaurant Industry.

IHF 2002 is introducing new features this year, such as the Culinary Art Show. Prominent chefs will compete and demonstrate their artistic and creative talents in competitions such as Live Fruit & Vegetable carving, Live Ice Carving, Chocolate Showpiece and Three-Tier Wedding Cake Decoration Competition. In addition, visitors will be able to discover how to set dinner tables at a newly introduced Table Setting Competition. The very successful Test Kitchen event, with live cooking and tasting will be held again this year.

Several high-level networking events are organised alongside the Forum to maximise interaction between the key players in the tourism and hospitality sectors. A familiarization trip to Aqaba will be organized for potential investors to look at available opportunities in the tourism, leisure and hospitality sectors.

The show is the right place for conducting business in Jordan, Palestine, Iraq and the neighbouring countries, providing the opportunity to present new products and find new dealers and distributors. Official delegations will be hosted from the region during IHF 2002.
