Doha, October 08 (QNA) – DIYAFA (meaning hospitality in direct Arabic translation) will launch its 7th edition of the Hotel, Restaurant and Food exhibition at the Doha Exhibition Center from the 16 to 18 October at the Doha Exhibition Center.

Opening its doors to industry professionals, the DIYAFA team held a press briefing today to talk about the hospitality industry as a whole and the platform they plan to provide.
Sarah Mroueh, the Project Manager behind DIYAFA and its unique offerings, noted yesterday that, “Lots of time was invested in not just putting together a competition but in developing a competition that encourages team building, supports motivational relationships between executive head chefs and their comis chefs as well as providing an opportunity for chefs to get some directional feedback from expert judges from around the world. Salon Culinaire started with just under 30 chefs competing in 2009 today, the competition plays host to just over 200 chefs. ”
