"Excellent, great event, great speakers, very informative discussions and great networking with global industry leaders. Definitely one of the better F&B conferences in the region if not, 'the benchmark'."

Nicholas Couvaras, Managing Director, Kroma

GRIF in detail

Global Restaurant Investment Forum (GRIF) is a platform for connecting investors looking for opportunities and concepts looking to grow.  It is also a forum for sharing ideas, innovation and best practice from around the world.

The high-level agenda sparks interest and debate and the conversations continue through the night to the evening receptions. The real experience of concepts in the exhibition hall, coupled with bespoke mentoring sessions, energized round table discussions and high calibre participants makes for the perfect mix for this growing forum. Over the last 3 years GRIF has established itself as the annual meeting place for the global restaurant investment community.

The culinary tour

The GRIF culinary tour kickstarts the event and gives attendees the opportunity to visit a range of real estate options in the local market, see what’s currently on the menu and assess the pipeline.

The culinary tour provides a taste of the latest local concepts and a chance to hear from the owners on what challenges or opportunities they encountered when setting up their concept. In addition, the tour facilitates over 5 hours of face to face networking before the main conference even begins.
