Vignettes from The Madrid Fusion Manila 2015

Held annually in Madrid, Spain, attended by elite chefs and experts in the culinary field to discuss trends, the evolution of tastes, and new food habits, Madrid Fusion Manila marked its first ever event in the Philippines and now is making waves in the food industry evolution.  

Madrid Fusion Manila 2015 is now featuring the Gastronomy Congress along side the Trade Exhibition. A a nationwide month-long Flavors of the Philippines Festival have been also bringing foodies in the forefront of the food scene to complement Madrid Fusion-Manila. For the first edition, the event is envisioned to showcase an encounter between Spanish and Filipino chefs to celebrate more than 300 years of shared history. 

For the Gastronomy Congress, the target was to have 1,400 participants: 700 foreign delegates and 700 Philippine delegates and targeting more than 170 exhibitors from Spain and the Philippines for the Trade Exhibition.  Reported during the press briefing, all access were fully-booked making all the marketing and promotion effective.

I was one of the many who were given the privilege to see the trade exhibition on it's first day.  So allow me to indulge you with my photo report on what happened on the 24th of April at the trade fare of Madrid Fusion Manila 2015.
