Australia’s largest food & beverage expo EVER is coming to Melbourne in September 2019. 

Melbourne will host Global Table – the largest food business event ever staged in Australia, with more than 5,000 participants.

Global Table will involve a series of internationally-focused business events that will promote Australia as the destination for investors and traders to connect with business leaders from across the Asia‑Pacific.

Attendees will enjoy a diverse program in Melbourne and across regional Victoria catering for a range of audiences including researchers, retailers, entrepreneurs, food buyers and investors.

It will position Australia as an exciting destination to discover innovation, technology and new food products.

Food + Wine Victoria will deliver the event – drawing on their expertise delivering the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival — which is part of the Labor Government’s $15 million Taste Victoria initiative launched last night.

“Melbourne – Australia’s food and event capital – is the ideal destination for this globally important event. From our farms, wineries, breweries and laboratories to our cafes, markets, restaurants and bars, I’ve got no doubt international visitors will be impressed by what they experience during Global Table,” said Food + Wine Victoria Chairman Radek Sali.

Organisers have already confirmed they will partner with Seeds&Chips – The Global Food Innovation Summit, the leading food innovation event worldwide.

Taste Victoria will bolster the state’s thriving food and fibre industry, and help Victoria grow its presence in the global food market and capture export opportunities.

The Growing Food and Fibre Markets program will be key to this initiative, which aims to grow and safeguard Victoria’s high quality, premium exports.
