8 - 10 March 2010: Cape Town International Convention Centre
With the expected tourist boom for South Africa, 2010 looks set to bring boundless opportunities to service providers throughout the hospitality industry.
HOSTEX is the largest and longest-running exhibition of its kind in Africa, and the only one endorsed by the South African Chefs Association.
From non-stop action in the SA Chefs Pavilion, to specialty products in the Home Grown/SME Village, to the second annual Global Pizza Challenge , HOSTEX Cape will be hotter than ever before.
New additions include a "Wine Circle" showcasing the Cape's finest.
In response to the overwhelming international move towards a more environmentally conscious approach the expo will feature a Greenstuff Village.
In addition to an exhibition area of suppliers of green products and services, the Greenstuff Village will feature a Green Hotel, taking the form of a series of rooms typically found in a hotel, with a comprehensive showcase of green products.
Each room - the bedroom, bathroom, restaurant, industrial kitchen/laundry and garden - will exhibit approximately a dozen pre-approved suppliers of green products and services, including furniture, linen, packaging, appliances, detergents and much more.
