Foodex Saudi 2017 – The Leading International Trade Exhibition

Foodex Saudi starts from the 12th of November in the city of Jeddah. It’s known to be the leading international trade exhibition for food and drinks.


Jeddah is known to be the hub of business in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, so, Foodex Saudi being held in this city is an obvious choice. It’s the largest city in the state of Makkah and hosts over 10 million religious tourists every year, whereas the population is only 5 million. It has been estimated that by the year 2025, the city will get almost 25 million visitors each year!

Soon enough, Jeddah will have the largest airport in the Kingdom, so, we can only anticipate that next year’s Foodex would be even bigger.

Foodex will be held at the Jeddah Centre for Forums and Events from the 12th of November till the 15th of November. It will be open from 3pm to 10pm each day. The venue has the parking capacity for over a thousand vehicles and around the clock security.

Foodex is a trade exhibition devoted entirely to the food and drink industry. If you register to visit, you can have the opportunity to try products from over 35 countries.

The exhibition will also feature a professional chef competition, known as Salon Culinaire. It has been endorsed by the World Association of Chefs Societies, the Saudi Arabian Chefs Table Circle and even the Saudi Arabian Chefs Association. This competition will platform skills and abilities of a variety of chefs that will be coming from several well-known and leading restaurants, eateries and even, hotels.
