Your Onboard Hospitality Forum - Asia

The Onboard Hospitality Forum - Asia is now a popular and established feature within FTE APEX Asia EXPO. Driven by leading onboard services magazine, Onboard Hospitality, the forum combines targeted inflight hospitality, peer to peer networking, and conference sessions with a chance to meet leading suppliers of catering, wellbeing, design and innovation. Held largely within a dedicated zone, the Forum is specifically designed to support buyers of inflight passenger comfort and catering. For 2020 it will include roundtable debates and educational sessions, hosted buyer privileges, and food tasting opportunities in a unique 'Street Food Festival’ - all of which will be free to attend.

In 2019 a number of leading inflight wellness and catering companies showcased their latest products and services, including SATS, Bayart Innovations, Beijing Dapeng, FORMIA, Global-C, Linstol, Monty’s Bakehouse and many more.

During the two-day Onboard Hospitality Forum Asia, attendees also had the chance to hear inspiration from a number of leaders in the hospitality sector, such as APOT (Asia Pacific Onboard Travel), United Airlines, Sri Lankan Airlines, Japan Airlines, SATS, APEX and IFSA. Among the topics discussed were inflight catering and customer experience innovations, Corporate Social Responsibility, sustainability and accessibility.

The Street Food Festival, jointly hosted by Onboard Hospitality and APOT, once again proved a popular attraction for visitors, bringing authentic Asian flavours to life within the exhibition hall..

SATS, Monty’s Bakehouse, Skinny Genie, Beemster, Do Food and TUBES were among the companies which provided delegates with flavoursome treats. The initiative called on airlines and their caterers to use their chefs’ creative skills and culinary imagination to reinvent the traditional street food of the region and show how colourful local dishes can be reinterpreted for the onboard service of the future.
