With 80 per cent of exhibition space sold, HotelAsia, one of the specialised events held during Food&HotelAsia, is a dedicated and integrated platform to showcase a comprehensive range of foodservice and hospitability equipment, machines and accessories by international exhibitors. HotelAsia will be a hotbed for new, state-of-the-art equipment and innovative technology when the event opens at Suntec Singapore during 24-27 April 2018.

Recognising sustainability standards through product innovation Jointly organised by HotelAsia and FCSI Asia Pacific Division, the inaugural SCI Equipment Awards is held in support and recognition of food service equipment manufacturers who have incorporated sustainability in their innovations.

The competition will feature six awards in two categories – Heavy Equipment and Light Equipment. Judging criteria and scoring are based on sustainability, cost savings and innovations, with a rating for each criterion. These criteria range from judging the equipment performance, how it minimises the eco-impact, to how it improves work efficiency or saves labour, customer satisfaction and more. Hailing from FCSI, the distinguished panel of judges include: Ms. Clara Pi, Past Chair/China Representative; Mr. Man Kai Hong, Managing Director of Constructive Consultant Co Ltd; Mr. Shigeru Suzuki, President of Y. Inoue Office, Ltd; Mr. Brandon Kua, Founder of Citrus Consult Sdn Bhd and Partner at Innovative Project Solutions; and Mr. Anton Lee, Director of Ricca Design Studios, Hong Kong & Shanghai.

“To protect the future health of our planet and combat climate change, it is imperative that each industry addresses the impact it has on the environment and forges a path to a low carbon future. It is even more important for the foodservice industry, as our food supply alone contributes to more than a third of total global greenhouse emissions. That's more emissions than all the cars, planes, and trains combined, not to mention the carbon emissions and resource utilisation from foodservice equipment in general. Thus, the sector plays a major role in cutting down emissions to ensure a sustainable food supply chain,” says Ms. Clara Pi, Past Chair/China Representative, FCSI Asia Pacific Division, FCSI World Wide Board Director.

“The SCI Equipment Awards was conceptualised to encourage and acknowledge the efforts of these foodservice equipment manufacturers to enhance sustainability standards through product innovation. This is a very important and special award for foodservice equipment manufacturers and distributors in Asia and we need the collaboration of equipment manufacturers and distributors. Let's join forces to make this event a success and work towards a sustainable future for generations to come!” Open to all HotelAsia exhibitors, online submission of entries for the award will start in the third quarter of 2017 and the closing deadline is 23 February 2018.

The Award will conclude with a prize giving ceremony held during HotelAsia2018, and winning innovations will be displayed at the show.
