Manager of Leaders Group and head of Horeca Kuwait’s organizing committee Nabila AlAnjeri thanked to all participants who contributed to achieving the success of Horeca Kuwait 2019. She also expressed special gratitude to the manager of Hospitality Services, Joumana Dammous. In a statement she made after concluding the exhibition, Anjeri thanked minister of state for economic affairs Mariam Al-Aqeel for patronizing and inaugurating the exhibition, touring its sections along with heads of participating and sponsoring companies and discussing hospitality issues. This reflects increasing governmental care in lines of business that can help turn Kuwait into a regional financial and commercial hub, she noted. Furthermore, Anjeri indicated that more than 10 ambassadors visited the exhibition, while the ambassadors of France and Australia in Kuwait held special receptions in honors of participants. “Many foreign delegations also visited the exhibition and negotiated with a number of exhibitors concerning possible joint projects,” she added. Further, Anjeri noted that participants and competitors in the cooking competitions belonged to over 20 nationalities, adding that next year’s cycle would be held in the period of January 22-24, 2020. Finally, Anjeri stressed that Horeca Kuwait was annually gaining more interest and exhibitors’ satisfaction, noting that the total number of participating companies had increased by 10 percent compared to the previous cycle, while visitors’ numbers jumped from 6,000 last year to around 7,000 this year.
