The Jumeirah at Etihad Towers rose to the challenge and from the welcome dinner through to the closing cocktail party, the food, beverage and service was impeccable. Delegates enjoyed three evenings of networking functions and two days of productive meetings and seminars, and a gourmet reception and dinner at the St. Regis.
With the industry's most senior decision makers all attending, the suppliers showcasing their products were kept busy with discussion of future business and opportunities. The meetings programme ran like clockwork, with newcomers to the event commenting how it was just like speed dating but for business.
The seminar programme highlighted and debated key issues in the Middle Eastern restaurant industry, with top experts sharing their opinions and recommendations.
Our thanks to all the attendees of TO THE TABLE MEA 2016, for making it the great success it was - from the speakers, to the F&B decision making buyers, to the suppliers - each part so important, and we are grateful to all.
With a record number of buyers confirmed to attend and the supplier list almost full, we are looking forward to welcome the most senior decision makers in hospitality food & beverage to the Rosewood Abu Dhabi, along with top industry suppliers.

Buyers and suppliers are signing up with great excitement as we head for the picturesque Shangri-La Barr Al Jissah Resort in Oman.
