NeXTfairs for Exhibitions & Conferences has announced that Qatar Food Safety Conference 2021 will be held on October 5 as part of a series of virtual events this year via the DigiCon platform.

The 1-day Virtual Conference aspires to serve as an important platform for key regulators, food industry leaders, food safety professionals, food distributors, academia, consumers and professionals to discuss and deliberate ground-breaking issues and concerns over food safety and quality.

Moreover, Qatar Living is the offical media partner for the highly anticipated event. 

The conference will tackle various food safety challenges and the latest issues facing the food industry during and post-COVID 19. It will also focus on topics related to local, regional and international regulations and global standards which aim to strengthen food safety standard implementation in the country.

Rawad Sleem, Co-founder & General Manager of NeXTfairs for Exhibitions and Conferences, said, “DigiCon is an innovative platform that enables participants to meet and discuss themes of common interests. Moreover, it provides the latest virtual communication technologies with interactive windows that mimic the face-to-face traditional exhibitions with customized features like exchanging agreements between participating companies, having private meetings and live broadcasts, creating user-friendly clients’ lists, in addition to easy access to digital content from anywhere.”

He added that Qatar Food Safety Conference’s registration is free of charge on DigiCon platform. Registered attendees will enjoy free access to the virtual platform and can also access the conference's sessions and exhibitors, while also receiving a CPD certificate.

Sleem indicated that Qatar Food Safety Conference 2021 will bring together more than 20 experts in the food safety sector around the world to discuss the latest trends, developments and best practices in the industry. Additionally, more than 500 participants and key players in the food industry will be brought together in the conference to discuss over 30 topics related to food safety policies and regulations.

Sleem highlighted that Qatar HR Conference 2021, which was organized by NeXTfairs via DIGICON platform earlier, had achieved great success. The conference shed light on the mechanisms of qualifying and developing the national labor force, which is in line with Qatar National Vision 2030 that aims at enhancing qualification and training programs and providing incentives for Qataris to encourage them to occupy senior technical and administrative professions in the sectors of business, health and education.

In addition to providing high-quality training opportunities for all citizens, each according to their ambitions and capabilities, and increasing employment opportunities for Qatari women and supporting them professionally.

According to Sleem, “The current global pandemic has changed the world, but we have stood up to the challenge and it did not stop us from continuing the business and leading the recovery of the industry. The success of our first virtual conference (Qatar HR Conference) is proof that the business events industry is heading towards the virtual world in light of the Corona pandemic, depending on electronic platforms and modern technological developments, which enhances business continuity and stimulates the growth of economic sectors.”

Sleem explained that the food and beverage industry has faced one of the most significant challenges during COVID-19, and that they want to be the catalyst for inspiring the industry to rise to the occasion and ensuring that the food safety industry receives all necessary support by establishing connections and collaboration.

According to the most recent data available from the Qatar Development Bank, Qatar's F&B sector has 2950 operational outlets with a total revenue of about QAR 6,99 billion (about QAR 7 bn). Furthermore, overall revenues generated by the sector are predicted to reach around QAR 14.2 billion by 2026, representing a 7.4 percent CAGR over 2016.

Based on current demographic standards and the building of the 2022 World Cup facilities, which will represent significant outlets boosting the industry's expansion, the F&B industry in Qatar is gaining traction.

Furthermore, the opening of new malls and hotels will have a significant impact on the establishment of new food and beverage services outlets such as fine dining, casual dining, quick service restaurants, beverage serving outlets, and cafes.

Make sure to register now for the free event that will transform the future of food safey and quality!
