What the Suppliers said:

It was a real pleasure for Zieher to participated at TO THE TABLE MEA event once again. As always, it is very helpful for us to establish our network with our main target groups and to present our latest innovative Zieher products. We are very thankful for this opportunity and looking forward to attending the next TO THE TABLE events as well.

Head of Sales, Zieher

Well organised event and great to be around in a formal and informal setting with high quality people from the industry. A great way to learn, to interact with key decision makers and receive and share valuable, useful knowledge and information. For me, one of the main reasons to attend, is to further build on brand and product offering awareness, as well as strengthen my relationships with the industry. 

Sales Manager Export, Bravilor Bonamat

It was a real pleasure to attend TO THE TABLE MEA, we were very satisfied with our meetings at the event and enjoyed the evening functions we attended during three days.

Senior Sales & Project Manager, Ali Group

TO THE TABLE MEA was another success for us, thank you for a well-organised event. We met many new, quality buyers and having our products there to show makes this event much better than meeting people in their offices. The seminars were relevant and interesting, so the event was a good investment of our time and money. The team did a fantastic job of keeping everything running smoothly and professionally. We are a regular attendee at TO THE TABLE, so see you next time.

Business Development, Kopa Grilling Solutions

Sales Manager MEA, FOH

For me at was my first time attending the event, I must say it was very well-organised with high quality buyer attendees. It would take us a lot of time and money if we would have arranged the meetings ourselves. The entourage and social gatherings only added to the whole experience! In the end we have gained a lot of insights and very valuable contacts! Sign me up for next year!

The dinners and cocktail events were flawless and seamlessly executed.
