A rebranded and upgrade to FoodTech International for an all-rounded F&B focused exhibition.


Businesses and industry players looking for new trade avenues to regain opportunities in the food and beverage markets can look towards a more comprehensive event next year by exhibition organizer, PT Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (WAKENI).  Food & Beverage Indonesia (FBI) will replace FoodTech International from 18 to 21 March 2021 at the JIExpo, Kemayoran – Jakarta, Indonesia, making way for a freshly branded and higher scale exhibition. FBI will fulfill wide-ranging needs for innovative end products, in-demand solutions and technology-driven production requirements that support the expanding food and beverage supply industry across the country.


Food & Beverage Indonesia is an all-inclusive festival of Indonesia’s best tastes, flavours, and inventions in food and beverages. This mega exhibition comprises 4 sub-events focusing on Indonesia’s growing palates for Sweets & Snacks, Organic Food, Coffee & Tea and Wine, Spirits & Gourmet. FBI aspires to bring forward a colourful showcase of unique food and beverage types as well as culinary equipment and technologies to cater to different consumption habits, taste preference and F&B production methods.

Food & Beverage Indonesia is set to bring together the country’s popular brand names and emerging businesses who have introduced novel and creative products to further invigorate Indonesia’s food, beverage and culinary sectors.  Exclusively designed and dedicated for innovators and creative producers in Indonesia’s food, beverage and culinary sectors, FBI will provide an opportune stage for exhibiting companies to gain further publicity and valuable business. The exhibition will connect them to targeted customers in person and enable close-up engagement with the influential network of food and beverage sales agents, distributors, retailers and brand influencers.

The exhibition will feature an extensive product range with each of 4 sub-events presenting the best end or ready-to-consume product for their category. Available across all sub-events and FBI in general are also the processing, preparation and culinary equipment, ingredients and raw materials and F&B technology or solutions sought after or provided by HORECA industry equipment providers, such as chillers, ovens, work benches. In all, FBI will gather food manufacturers, bakery house owners, beverage producers, tableware and cutlery suppliers, end-product sellers and entrepreneurs involved in the food and beverage trade at one central venue.

For visitors’ benefit, FBI will introduce Indonesian consumers and trade buyers to the ‘Next Big Thing’ in food and beverage, produced specially to represent Indonesia’s quality brand and popularity in the international F&B scene. Visitors can expect a fiesta full of fun onsite activities, amazing food spread and a feast of flavours and taste that are characteristically Indonesian. Visitors ranging from chefs, hoteliers, restauranteurs, small to large F&B businesses, baking and culinary skill enthusiasts including all food and beverage lovers will be the motivating factors for exhibiting companies to confidently promote their products’ outstanding taste, packaging, even retail value that would soon be popular amongst Indonesia’s large consumer groups.

Optimistic that the economic spring back and upswing in 2021 will allow for a robust trade exhibition to take place, Mrs. Rini Sumardi, Director of PT WAKENI said that, “The exhibition takes inspiration from Indonesia’s promisingly profitable food and beverage industry that has proven to be resilient against recent pandemic impacts. Food consumption needs are prevalent and continue to boast huge sales and buyer prospects.” This provides a meaningful backdrop for participating companies to identify new distributors and sales agents that will pave their entry into broader consumer markets. FBI offers the perfect platform for participating companies to introduce brand or to strengthen brand awareness across Indonesia and possible export markets. As immediate procurement orders can be made at the exhibition, exhibitors can also expect quick return of investment and see fast participation results.

Booth booking for Food & Beverage Indonesia is now open. Contact our sales team at or visit for more information to exhibit. Visitor registration will start on early December 2020.

Kitchen + Bathroom Indonesia and FoodTech International move to March 2021!

Indonesia’s 2 inspiring trade platforms for home and lifestyle enthusiasts – Kitchen + Bathroom Indonesia and FoodTech International will now be held together next year on the 18 to 21 March 2021 at the Jakarta International Expo. Kemayoran. The exhibitions were previously scheduled to be held from the 23 to 26 September 2020 alongside other exhibitions organized by PT Wahana Kemalaniaga Makmur (WAKENI). This development is also in line with WAKENI’s plans to renew focus on the parallel similarities between the two exhibitions; that is to meet the end-consumer intertwined needs across the home equipment, appliances and innovation sector, and the food supply technology sector.

“Tightening social distancing regulations and operational restrictions for business communities and the public by Indonesia’s Ministry of Health due to the Covid-19 pandemic situation has led WAKENI to review the exhibitions standing in the market and amongst our industry stakeholders. We hear our industry partners, exhibiting companies and visitors’ feedback and support for the exhibitions, and concluded the importance of holding the exhibition still albeit at a later time for all parties to make better preparations meanwhile,” said Mrs Rini Sumardi, Director of WAKENI.

With more people forced to stay at home more, the bathroom and kitchen environment – particularly so for the kitchen setting where food supply is being stocked, are essential needs for the public. Despite the operational slow down faced by manufacturers, service providers and suppliers in the kitchen and bathroom industry, there have been continued demands for products by end-consumers. As for the food technology sector, requirements for solutions and services that support the end-food supply such as for delivery, convenient or packaged food are steady and expanding.

For many companies looking forward to a more stimulating 2021, the exhibitions will be the opportune event for them to start promoting their business proactively. “We see a potential stabilization in market demands after the pandemic situation eases and see the new schedule next year as a good time to hold the exhibitions. The exhibitions will serve as the springboard platform for companies in the industry to return to the market, regain opportunities and reconnect with their customers. The few months wait from the earlier scheduled dates will give our exhibiting companies more time to observe market movements and consumer demand patterns, as well as to adequately plan their output logistics in order to introduce relevant products at the exhibitions next year,” added Mrs Sumardi.
