About the event

COVID-19 Update

Gulfood Exhibition 2022 marked yet another successful edition for the major trade show. Dubai World Trade Centre LLC rates it as the safest face-to-face business space and plans to repeat its success with Gulfood Exhibition 2023, which will be even bigger.

We confirm the new dates are scheduled for February 20th – February 24th and Dubai World Trade Centre is already hard at work on the new edition. You can be certain the exhibition grounds will be thoroughly sanitised and feature state-of-the-art COVID-19 protective measures. You’re in good hands and up for a successful outing at Gulfood 2023. The precautions that will be implemented at the trade fair include attendees needing to maintain a social distance of 1.5 metres at all times. They must also wear face masks that cover their mouths and noses. The valid forms include surgical, FFP2 or KN95 ones. Because of the UAE's current travel limitations, attendants may have to quarantine for a set amount of time or show 3G entry documents upon arrival,   

Calling Card

When you cross international flavors with world-class businesses, the result is Gulfood. Gulfood is the largest food and hospitality event in the world.

February is when the Dubai World Trade Centre usually sees an influx of trade visitors coming to sample over 120 global cuisines.
