We were delighted to host the first event of the 2018 Stamegna Food Network in the heart of Europe, our headquarter: the ever enigmatic and stunning Budapest. It was held in the beginning of March with months of effort by the whole team and the cooperation of our partner since many years The Hilton Budapest City.

In two days we engaged all Food and Confectionery buyers and manufacturers in 1066 meetings. Most of the food products were presented in categories “Gourmet and Specialty Food” and “Organic Natural Food”.

Considering the tight individual schedules and saturated sample sets of all the producers, our renowned buyers were involved in negotiating possible deals while tasting new innovative products.

For the first time ever we allowed the suppliers share their inventions with the guests at the coffee break area. This resulted in not only feedback from distributors and retailers, but other peers and competitors. You could see a wide diversity of dainties - from an ice cream to jamon.

It was a pleasure to observe that the primary motive of the Stamegna Network was prevalent – networking itself was a common ground for all the professionals. The participants were sharing their experiences, and diverse industry advises during breaks, lunchtime or dinner.

This year we had buyers from European, Middle Eastern and Eurasian countries while manufacturers were presenting Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East and even Australia. Some of the attendees were participating in the Stamegna Network for the third time after having experienced exploring Asian and American markets successfully with us.

We want to express our gratitude to every company and entrepreneur for believing in our mission and helping to develop FMCG market worldwide. We will be proud to be your facilitator again in MadridDubai and Atlanta this year.
