THAILAND. The Airport Food & Beverage (FAB) + Hospitality Conference and Awards opening-night party at the Bangkok Millennium Hilton opened with a bang as guests enjoyed a spectacular SSP-sponsored oyster and Champagne-fuelled limbo competition, neon dancers and riverside fireworks.

Thai travel retailer King Power International kindly supplied the fine wines and Champagne on the evening,

The magnificent welcome evening culminated in warm words from SSP Group CEO Patrick Coveney about the significance of the event’s return, followed by a stunning fireworks display above the Chao Phraya river

Was this the greatest Opening Cocktail in FAB’s proud 12-year history? Thank you SSP for your belief in FAB and your commitment to the sector.

The evening was an appropriate celebration for the welcome return of FAB, which has come back as an in-person event for the first time since 2019.
