A by-invitation event only, the Middle East Food Forum serves as an essential meeting place for food service business owners and operators to interact with industry experts, shed light on industry concerns and brainstorm new ideas and inspiration. With a focus this year on addressing the concerns of budding entrepreneurs and franchisers looking to begin their journey, the event targets food service business owners and operators. 
 
The opening note on Building Your Dream Restaurant by Mr. Akhilesh Bahl, the Founder & CEO of Malt & Salt Hospitality, will address he needs of a restaurant from the base upward. The session will include real inspiring stories from two decades of Akhilesh's personal experience of incubating and harboring brands in the F&B sector. This will be followed by a VAT's on the Menu talk by Mr. Rakesh Pardasani, Partner at RSM UAE, aiming to provide tell-all minutiae about the onslaught of VAT in the UAE, and what the hospitality industry can do today to safe-guard its interests in the future. Followed by this, a 5-minute elevator pitch training will take place, with an end-note and Q&A thereon by Mr. Sergio Lopez, Co-founder of Tom & Serg and Board Member at the Bull & Roo Hospitality and Investments Group.  
 
Mr. Tahir Shah, Founder, Founder, Moti Roti, said, “We've had a beautiful journey in the UAE as one of the first Food Trucks that came up here, and the streak has really become a phenomenon. I think this opportunity is excellent for up and coming foodpreneurs to tap into their fullest potential. I hope my pitfalls and journey might be able to assist potential entrepreneurs and food truck managers to create a rewarding and profitable hospitality business.” 
 
Commenting on the upcoming event, Mr. Vishal Pandey, Founder, Data On A Plate and Middle East Food Forum said, “This workshop will be quite different from our other workshops, with experts in finance, investments and beyond being part of our lectures and seminars, providing hands-on knowledge on what they do best and how the attendees benefit from the same. Mr. Akhilesh's talk will focus on all the tools a potential entrepreneur needs to create the best brand he can imagine, while Mr. Rakesh will give great insight to established F&B industry stakeholders on how VAT will affect them and their customers, and how best to cushion the blow of a new regime. The 5-minute pitch will be on the topic of new technology in the industry, which is a radical topic to take on, and will surely spark a healthy debate incubating innovation. Finally, Mr. Sergio will give us a low-down on how he brought the renowned name of Tom & Serg to the UAE market and made it the sought-after place to be it is today. In the past we have received overwhelmingly positive responses from attendees as well as hosts alike, and we are keen to see how these fantastic speakers will address the concerns of potential foodpreneurs and franchisers in the region with their expertise.”
