Seoul Food & Hotel 2017 Culinary Challenge

The overall objective of the Culinary Challenge is to continue to add another dimension to Seoul Food & Hotel 2017 (organised by Allworld Exhibitions and Kotra) after a successful competition launch in 2015.

The aim is to incorporate Exhibition Partners to sponsor individual cooking competitions to promote their products in a competitive environment.

The categories will be mainly “on the spot” preparations, both hot and cold, with the focus on the presentation and taste. The competitors will receive the sponsored ingredients at the exhibition prior to their competition time. All other ingredients to produce the dish will be supplied by the participants. In 2017, we will include an international team event and several cold display categories. Basic equipment such as electric induction stoves, ovens, refrigeration, work space, sinks, etc. will be provided.
