It’s that time of year again, its Food Week! As usual it’s being held at Coex on November 2nd – 5th 2016. This years theme is A World of Flavour, so expect to see an International flair at this years event. This years event is set to be even bigger than last years, which boasted 900 hundred different exhibits, stalls, and manufacturers selling their wares to 80,000 visitors.
This years Food Week 2016 will host a number of international guests including a Turkish pavilion, Chinese pavilion, and an ASEAN Fair dedicated to ASEAN local food. Most of the stalls will be giving out out free samples or some kind of promotional goodies. There will also be a whole host of cooking demonstrations and competitions to watch.
For those with a passion for cakes, pies, and baked goodies, the Seoul International Bakery Fair will
be held alongside Food Week Korea. There will be plenty of opportunities to satisfy your sweet tooth
and pick up any baking or cookware you’ve been after.
I have been to the exhibit the past few years in a row and there is always something interesting to see, buy, or taste. If you are a newbie to Food Week, expect to see booze, baked goods, machinery, packaging, ingredients, cooking competitions and so much more. So if your idea of a good time involves walking around a supermarket devouring as many free samples as possible, then Food Week is the exhibit for you. Just be sure to go hungry!
Food Week Korea will be taking place at Coex, Seoul from the 2nd – 5th of November 2016. If you would like to get free tickets you can register on the Food Week Website! If you decide to visit on the day, tickets can be purchased for 10,000 won. For more information about food week please call +82-2-6000-8160 or check out the Food Week website.
