After two pandemic years, GAST returns to Split’s Spaladium Arena for its 26th edition, reports Slobodna Dalmacija

The International Fair GAST 2022, which takes place from March 16 to 19, is the best place to prepare for the tourist season. Namely, GAST gathers the target audience, such as restaurant owners, hotels and family hotels, small renters, and caterers from all over Dalmatia.

“We have more than 600 exhibitors, co-exhibitors and brands, a rich schedule of professional conferences, a top program within eight specialized fairs, and, importantly, we receive recommendations in solving the long-standing problem of labor shortage in the season. At the fair, we promote catering professions and present waiters, chefs, sommeliers, pizza masters, bartenders… And employers who visit GAST will have the opportunity to see in one place the skills of future employees during numerous gastronomic competitions at the fair. We will have a real “headhunting arena,” reveals Sanja Vuković Veić, director of Split Fair, a company that has been organizing the most prestigious event of its kind for more than two and a half decades.

In addition to contracting new works for equipping facilities for the tourist season, there are also conferences for apartment owners, holiday homes, and small entrepreneurs in tourism, culinary competitions that always dictate gastronomic trends for the upcoming season, numerous tastings and opportunities to create new menus and wine lists, presentations of novelties for the entire tourism industry, and all that is important to welcome guests at an even higher level than last year.

“And this season will be challenging. But that’s why at GAST, we have experts, educators, consultants who can help us with our experience in our business. Even if you are not directly related to tourism, at GAST, we always have something for everyone. From the international fairs of food, beverages, hotels, and catering equipment to the wine fair “Dionizijana,” the furniture fair “Furnitura,” and the coffee fair. There is also a fair of ice cream, sweets, and bakery products,” Vuković Veić said, adding that top chef dishes will be cooked for visitors, with always exciting lectures and wine tasting and new lines of spirits and bartender presentations

“In a sea of negative news, be part of a positive story – join us at the 26th International Fair GAST, and all the details and schedule of events are available at www.gastfair.com.”
