Even as a foodie, I still haven't been to a lot of food and beverages expo. However, these upcoming events are exceptions. With the month of September fast approaching, there will be not just one, but two big events which entrepreneurs, cooking enthusiasts and even foodies shouldn't miss, the Food & Drinks Asia 2012 and Asia Food Expo 2012.
FOOD & DRINKS ASIA 2012
The first among this tandem of events is the Food & Drinks Asia 2012 which will be held from September 6 to 9, 2012 at the World Trade Center. You can expect loads and loads of food and drinks as this will be an international exposition on specialty foods, confectioneries, delicatessens, special beverages, beers, and even wines and spirits.
If you're looking for franchising opportunities, you can also take advantage of this event as the 16th International Food Franchising and Business Systems Exposition will be held simultaneously. This is perfect for entrepreneurs looking for the most profitable franchising market as franchise food establishments will all be gathered under one roof.
There's also a special something for entrepreneurs who are into supermarkets and groceries business as Groceries Asia bring you an international exposition on supermarkets, groceries and convenience stores, supplies, business solutions and systems and technology.

ASIA FOOD EXPO 2012
The Asia Food Expo 2012 on the other hand, to be held from September 12 to 15, 2012 also at the World Trade Center, is the 21st international exposition on food processing, packaging, handling, machinery, equipment and technology. This event is especially geared towards entrepreneurs who are already in the food processing industry. But of course, curious souls like myself are welcome to attend and to learn. Maybe in the future, we'll get to start our own food businesses too.
Aside from entrepreneurs from the food processing industry, there's also the FoodServe Asia 2012 for those in the field of food service. Here, you can expect an international exposition on catering systems, supplies, equipment and technology for food service businesses.
If you think there's nothing more to this event, then better think twice as there's also something in store for bakery and pastry shop owners, the Bakery Asia 2012 which is another international exposition, but this time, on bakery and confectionery systems, supplies and even equipment.
