What Happened on the First Day of the Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018?

It is a lot more than a simple Congress!


The Worldchefs Congress & Expo brings together more than 4000 chefs, industry leaders, culinary enthusiasts and gastronomy fans who learn about the culinary trends and innovations, compete in the Global Chefs Challenge and discover their best life experience. 

Worldchefs Congress & Expo 2018 took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, at the prestigious Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. 

The Congress included four busy days of action programmed between July 11 – July 14, 2018 and the Expo featured world class exhibitors from across the culinary world. 

Congress & Expo is a hallmark tradition of Worldchefs and has been organized in over 37 cities across the world bringing together more than 110 member countries throughout its illustrious 90 years young history. 


The first day of the Congress kickstarted with lots of laughter and camaraderie! We welcomed approximately 4000 participants – all ready to savour Asia on a Plate. From sharing updates from their respective continents (at the Europe, Asia & Pacific, Africa & Middle East Presidents Forum) to sampling Malaysia’s street favourites at Hakka Restaurant for the Ice Breaker Reception, all we can say is: We were ready to make this the Congress you would never forget.

Warm Welcomes by our Congress Chairman, Andy Cuthbert & our President, Thomas Gugler!


On that first busy day, our Congress & Expo Chairman, Andy Cuthbert accompanied by our President warm welcomed all our guests to an unforgettable experience.

“The millennial mindset today is very different. And I don’t mean we are dealing only with millennials who are 20 years old. It could be a 35-year-old who doesn’t accept the way things were in the old-style kitchens.” Said Andy Cuthbert, Congress Chairman

“The congress gives an opportunity to people who are interested to coming into the profession to talk and network with very seasoned and well-known chefs worldwide” said Thomas Gugler, President of Worldchefs
