The Singapore Chefs’ Association has announced that Singapore will be the official host for the Worldchefs Congress and Expo in 2024.
The biennial international event for professional chefs will bring together over 1,000 delegates and professionals from all continents. The programme will feature presentations and workshops from industry experts, educational programmes including the Worldchefs Educators’ Forum, and specialised events designed to “uplift the next generation of chefs”, including the Bill Gallagher Young Chefs Forum, the Global Chefs Challenge culinary competition, and an international trade exhibition.
President of the Singapore Chefs’ Association, Eric Neo, said: “This is a milestone for the Singapore Chefs’ Association and credit goes to the Singapore Congress Bid Committee who relentlessly pursued excellence and the support of the Singapore Tourism Board.
“Singapore was the first country in Asia to host the Worldchefs Congress in 1990. Since then, Singapore has changed so much, especially in the world of food and beverage. We believe we have a lot to offer the
world of chefs with our culinary scene and heritage, and we cannot wait to show them what we have.”
Deputy chief executive of the Singapore Tourism Board, Yap Chin Siang, said: “We are honoured that Singapore has been chosen as the official country to host the Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2024 amidst strong competition. This win reaffirms our position as a trusted global-Asia business hub and supports our goal to be the world’s leading destination for safe, trusted and innovative business events and meetings. We look forward to warmly welcoming chefs from all over the world to experience this firsthand in 2024.”
