Top honours for Dubai Food Carnival
Dubai, May 24, 2014
Dubai Food Carnival, a family-friendly food and beverage extravaganza and the opening salvo of this year’s inaugural Dubai Food Festival, was named the best exhibition at the 7th Middle East Event Awards.
“Winning such a prestigious accolade recognises Dubai Food Carnival as an excellent addition to Dubai’s major events calendar,” remarked Trixie LohMirmad, the senior VP at Events & Exhibitions Department, Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC), the event organisers.
“With a new venue, more exhibitors and a more diverse entertainment programme already lined up for next year, we have also added an extra day to cater for popular demand,” stated LohMirmad.
Tens of thousands of visitors flocked to February’s debut event, which featured international celebrity chefs conducting educational culinary masterclasses and workshops, enticing food stalls, mouth-watering food tastings, a multi-cultural feast of music and a blockbuster 360° stage hosting a variety of acts including world champion Sumo wrestlers and family-themed competitions.
“The Dubai Food Carnival was an innovative platform for both brands and consumers to celebrate all things food,” observed Said Marzouk, the operations manager, Middle East, Hakkasan Dubai.
“The event has established instant credentials as the emirate’s newest mega family event,” he added.
The second Dubai Food Carnival will be held next year at Dubai International Marine Club from February 12 to 14.-TradeArabia News Service
