The highly anticipated international event will welcome professional chefs from over 100 countries
SINGAPORE August 31, 2020 – The Singapore Chefs’ Association is proud to announce Singapore is the official country to host the Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2024.
The bi-annual international event for professional chefs will bring together over 1000 delegates and professionals from across the five continents to network and expand their professional bonds. The unique program delivers presentations and workshops from leading experts in the industry, impactful educational programs including the Worldchefs Educators’ Forum, specialised events designed to uplift the next generation of chefs such as the Bill Gallagher Young Chefs Forum, the Global Chefs Challenge culinary competition, an international trade exhibition, and diverse activities to enhance both personal and professional networks.
Since 1928, Worldchefs Congress & Expo has united a global community of chefs and cross-industry innovators to explore the past, present, and future of the culinary trade. The biennial event is a hallmark tradition of Worldchefs with an institutional, cultural and economic interest. It has been organised in 38 cities around the world throughout its illustrious 90-year history.
In the finals, Singapore beat Wales to secure the bid with 40 votes (against 36 votes).
Says Chef Eric Neo, President of the Singapore Chefs’ Association, “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 and it made history. Since then, Singapore has changed so much, especially in the world of food & 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.
