All went well, we liked the location of the hotel, right in the historic center of the city with many restaurants around, no problems at check in!
About the event
IFE 2022 marked the successful restart of the leading trade fair for the F&B industry. A success which prompted organisers to proceed with the hosting of the next in-person edition. IFE will once again take place in 2023. The new dates are confirmed for the period March 20th – March 22nd at ExCel London. At present, the UK does not have strict prevention measures in relation to hosting trade fairs. However, participants are strongly encouraged to wear face masks during their visit of IFE 2023. Stay tuned for further updates regarding the event!
The International Food & Drink Event – IFE for short – has been at the centre of the food and beverages industry in the UK. It’s the biggest and best loved international exhibition every time it is staged in London, UK. ExCel London welcomes thousands over the course of four days every single year in March. IFE takes place at the start of the year and gives a chance for exhibitors to get reacquainted with existing clients and generate sales leads on a grand scale. Nowhere else do you discover the same quality of products and attendees, not to mention learn all new emerging trends and innovations.
When we talk about IFE being the biggest of its kind in the UK, we mean the biggest, and this all extends to the type of products on display. The exhibition halls are divided into nine themed areas: Great British & Irish Food, grocery, health & wellbeing, cheese & dairy, drinks, bakery, meat & seafood, ingredients, and snacks & confectionery. As you can see, that’s the entire food and drinks industry in the UK, which makes IFE the perfect venue to break into the UK market and also to come in contact with brands such as Tesco and Planet Organic, TEA REX, Sodexo, Borough Market, Gourmet Burger Kitchen, Harrods and even the NHS. IFE is the prime meeting point for buyers, but you also have related professions in attendance, whether it’s food production specialists or chefs who have come to sign up for cooking competitions.
Did You Know?
The future of food and drink is a topic very near and dear to IFE. It’s why organisers work hard to secure first-rate experts and veterans in the industry to assist visitors and exhibitors. Over the course of a single edition, you have your choice between 70 talks, interactive workshops and panels that tackle market opportunities, industry challenges, responsible production and sustainability. It is the perfect source for information, especially if you step onto the Talking Trends stage. There you can learn about new cuisines and perform taste tests. Business owners can also tap into the experience and knowledge of seasoned experts at the Advice To Go Zone. Last but not least, stay for the cooking championships that happen every year across multiple disciplines.

Our visitors for the event
Hi Megan, thank you for your great support. Everything was fine in the hotel we booked.
Thank you for your mail. My member mentioned, this hotel was perfect, especially location was nice. We will contact you if we need your help to book the good hotel for the exhibition etc.
Again, thank you very much for your dedicated support for this.
Have a great day!
sorry if I take advantage of your personal number, but I want to tell you a big thank you in private because in a short time you have organized everything for me. You know I was anxious when they asked me to find the hotel for my colleagues. Then when you wrote me the first time, I started to calm down. Finally I even felt pampered. You are really special in your work.
I will never stop thanking you!
As the operating and marketing manager of our new office abroad, sometimes one just doesn`t have enough time to take care of small details that come back to haunt you at the very last minute. Even though, I was not familiar with your company before and I had never worked with an external company either, you remained reassuring and have kept your word. Within a very limited time frame and with only a few emails you were able to put me and 10 of my colleagues in a good hotel, with excellent service and near the city center... I have already send you the dates and locations of our next fairs! It was a pleasure working with you and I look forward to working with you again.
Hi Michael, Megan,
Thanks – the stay at Hotel 9 Paquis was very nice.
Megan – thanks for our cooperation these last years with hotel bookings, it’s been very nice dealing with you! 😊
Thank you for your e.mail. Yes, we checked out on Sunday morning and I confirm that everything in the Novum Bulevard in Stuttgart was OK. Thank you for your help in finding us a good accommodation for the fair.
I’m so sorry not to have reverted to you before. Everything were ok, and the guests found the Hotel very good and in a very good position in respect of Innotrans. Please let me also thank you for your professional assistance even for the last minute request. Thank you very much for the service rendered and I’ll keep in contact for future events like the Innotrans.
It's nice to hear from you. The stay was fine and all the coworkers enjoyed the Hotels (both the terrasses and Olympia)
Have a nice day,
