A specialist South Yorkshire Exhibition consultancy is reeling in the success of one of their most recent projects, after assisting the recruitment of around 100 exhibitors and 15000 visitors at the inaugural Halal Food Festival at ExCel London.

The event, brainchild of London based Halal Events Ltd, was created to fill the growing desire from affluent Middle Class Muslims to experience a greater range of Halal offerings and companies wishing to raise the profile of their Halal Brands. 

“We were approached by the organisers of the Halal Food Festival to help them with the recruitment of exhibitors”, said Paul Tomes, Director of The Expo People. 

“With such a specific brief and a really fresh vision, it was a project we were immediately excited about and are pleased that we were able to assist during the recruitment process and also provide a level of exhibition specific support to the participating exhibitors.”

The festival featured many famous names on the food circuit and included top chefs such as Jean Christophe-Novelli, Shelina Permalloo and Abdul Yaseen as well as performances from superstars of the Islamic world Saif Adam and Mesut Kurtis, described as ‘the Michael Buble of the Islamic world’.

The event attracted over 15,000 visitors over the course of the weekend, with many exhibitors stating that the festival exceeded their own expectations.

“We hope to continue to work with Halal Events to drive the continued success of this model and indeed other concepts that they have in the pipeline”

The Rotherham based business is currently working on a number of projects in the UK and overseas, offering consultancy services to companies organising or attending events with an exhibition element. 

“It’s a really exciting time for the business – we have lots of projects ongoing both in the UK and overseas, we believe we are able to add value to many events and continue to engage with as many companies as possible”
