METROPOLITAN EXPO

The 3rd day of the exhibition ended with a positive attitude & smiles

Entrepreneurs from all over the country continued to visit the Metropolitan Expo at a steady pace for yet another day.

Remarkable was for the 3rd consecutive day the presence of hoteliers, villa and guesthouse owners from every corner of Greece, who returned after 1 year of absence, to their appointment with HORECA and its exhibitors, to find solutions for their needs in equipment, decoration, renovation, and catering of their tourist accommodation regardless of category.

At the same time, professionals from the sector of cafeterias and restaurants who visited the exhibition, were informed about new products, saw all top coffee brands and made a number of commercial agreements with the exhibitors, in a Covid-free environment. Finally, a great number of catering professionals (owners, procurement managers, F&B managers and chefs) got ideas and saw techniques that can renew the facilities and the level of services of their business.

Innovative ideas and trends were presented during the special events

Hundreds of professionals from every corner of Greece attended the parallel events of HORECA and had the chance to hear interesting speeches by executives from the coffee market, mass catering and digital marketing experts. At the Gastronomy Forum (Hall 4), in addition to the culinary masterclasses, there was a lot of interest on the restaurant awards from various regions of Greece that promote Greek gastronomy and have become gastronomic destinations.
