The GDS Creates new food lifestyles and markets

The creation of the new market is the basic concept of the Gourmet & Dining Style Show (GDS), which chiefly aims at the new business development by leaping the boundaries between the existing business categories. With this concept, the GDS brings together food-related knowledge and systems, premium foods of high product quality with high added value, quality kitchen / dining items of excellent design, and promotes approaches to a variety of goods categories and business models. Needless to say, the show is an ideal platform for deploying a variety of novel meal solutions like sales-point suggestions, new meal / menu development, table coordination and new way-of-selling suggestions.

Encounters with new buyers other than the conventional food industry

The GDS is a cross business-sector trade fair where both Japanese and overseas buyers dealing with food and dining lifestyle goods (please refer to "targeted Show Visitors" ) visit from a wide variety of industries and businesses, so the show is not only for meeting the established buyers from your existing sales distribution routes, but also new type of buyers to develop new business models, which cannot be accomplished at the conventional food trade fairs. In addition, collaboration and business matching with the buyers who visit the concurrent trade show, 85th Tokyo International Gift Show Spring 2018, Japan's largest trade fair for giftware (No. of Visitors:200,867 at the 83rd TIGS Spring 2017), can be made during the show period. It's a golden opportunity to present the new food materials to lifestyle shops, Interior /Zakka shops, not to mention the food industry.
