Riyadh, Saudi Arabia hosted one of the biggest HORECA events in the region on November 27th-29th, 2018, and Sapaad was thrilled to be a part of it.
The eighth edition of Saudi HORECA showcased the latest culinary concepts, and hospitality and F&B trends. It also featured the first Saudi barista competition with a panel of international judges. With over 200 exhibitors and 23,000 visitors, Sapaad was delighted to connect and network with restaurateurs and hospitality experts in the industry.
A few takeaways from Saudi HORECA 2018:
1. Technology is the future of the hospitality and F&B industry. Restaurants need to embrace the latest advances in technology to stand out.
2. Food trucks and pop-up restaurants are an emerging and successful business model in Saudi Arabia. It is crucial to keep an eye out for these restaurant trends.
3. With technology on the rise, people want access to on-demand food. Busy lifestyles and the ease of access to technology gave rise to online food delivery options. Point-of-sale (POS) systems integrated with an online ordering channel and local food aggregators are key to a restaurant’s success.
