When it comes to the best in gastronomy and hospitality, it is time for the International Specialised Fairs of Tastes, which have a 14-year tradition. The coming Fairs will be hosted at Gospodarsko razstavišče, the Ljubljana Exhibition and Convention Centre, on the last weekend of January 2020 – from 29 January to 1 February.

Every year, the Fairs of Tastes provide an irreplaceable space for socializing, where professionals and the interested public can meet and exchange ideas. Despite all the advances, changes and technologies, the GASTexpo & Ice Cream Fairs of Tastes are a constant experience for everyone who follows their philosophy – personal contact and a firm handshake is still the best way to make new acquaintances, connections, and business deals. They keep pace with progress and give space to technological innovation in the field, but essentially remain true to the primary role of the Fairs as a medium – emphasizing the importance and quality of the personal contact that opens the door to the world.
