Autogrill Group pledge Platinum support for 2018 FAB Conference & Awards

FAB, Food&Beverage Awards, is dedicated to travel-related food & beverage: every year attracts senior representatives from the world’s leading airports and F&B concessionaires to network with their industry peers, share best practice and insights in this fast-growing sector.

Autogrill Group with its food & beverage divisions HMSHost and HMSHost International have been named as Platinum Partners of the seventh annual Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) Conference and Awards, which will take place in Helsinki next 20-21 June.

The event is organised by The Moodie Davitt Report and sister title The Foodie Report - the world’s only media focused on airport (and other travel-related) food & beverage - and hosted this year by Finavia.

“Through relationships we create places to be. We’re very proud of our successful partnership with Finavia, host of the FAB Conference & Awards this year. Our cooperation started at the end of 2013. Today we operate 19 exciting food & beverage concepts in the leading airport in Northern Europe".

“We are proud of everything we have accomplished together: the opening of Pier Zero, the FAB ‘Wow’ Factor 2017 and the Best Food & Beverage Partnership of the year 2017 Frontier Award. Proud to be Platinum sponsors, we look forward to FAB 2018, where relationships are formed and the excellence of the travel F&B industry is celebrated.”
