SIRHA Budapest’s ambition is to feature a comprehensive offering for the professionals of the food, baking and confectionery, hotel, hospitality and packaging industry and gastronomy.

Quoting: Zoltán Hamvas – president of SIRHA Budapest – president of the Hungarian Bocuse d’Or Academy – co-president of the Hungarian Hotel & Restaurant Association„For the experts of the region working in the food and catering industry, the SIRHA Budapest trade fair is an unmissable event where the professional audience meets the best and latest features of the sector. Covering gastronomy, the hotel sector, catering, food retail, the bakery and pastry industry and many other related services, SIRHA Budapest is an event which unites all branches of food industry services and gastronomy, providing an opportunity for the representatives of the various sectors to share their experiences with each other and make deals. Beyond the products on offer, the colourful range of events play a key role in this, from professional lectures and demonstrations to the competitions of chefs working in mass catering, confectioners and baristas. I must admit that I’m somewhat biased from all the events, the Bocuse d’Or competition is the dearest for me since the latest SIRHA Budapest hosted that wonderful event where the Hungarian team took first place as the best of Europe at the award ceremony, making it to the top of the podium. This year’s SIRHA Budapest will host the selection of the next Hungarian team. I wish them similar success, along with all the other visitors and exhibitors of the event!”

For visitors to keep in mind, the SIRHA Budapest – Pavillion A and G is strictly reserved for professionals. Proof of business may be requested at the entrance.
