This was the first time I attended TO THE TABLE Asia and I must compliment everyone in the organising committee for such a fantastic event. What I liked particularly was how beautifully our time was managed, where I could interact with partners on a one-on-one basis and have more focused and meaningful interactions. I have attended a lot of trade shows, but this has been by far the best one and I returned with greater in-depth insights about what’s new in the business and above all strong network with industry colleagues and business partners.

TO THE TABLE Asia 2023 was a very well organised and productive event. My second time around felt a lot more purposeful as I was able to resume any ongoing discussions I've been having with some of the suppliers, in person. In addition, the sense of familiarity elevates most of the connections we've established from the last TO THE TABLE, so it's been a real pleasure to be able to catch up, discuss and continue to work with delegates who came. It was very informative, a very productive use of our time, and most of all, it was fun!

Founder and Creative Director – IN-Dulge
We were very happy to join TO THE TABLE Asia 2023 in Kuala Lumpur at the W hotel. Under Justin and Debbie’s supervision, the event was faultless and managed from start to finish with the exact accuracy of a Rolex watch. We do believe it is the most productive seminar of tabletop around the world. We were certainly impressed with the diversity of new suppliers and even more astonished to see the amount of new products that these suppliers had developed after covid. The seminars were inspirational and stimulating, certainly correlated to the current market conditions. We were amazed by the quality of the coffee break and the quality of F&B at the W hotel, moreover during these lunches, dinners and coffee breaks we were able to re-engage with suppliers and delegates and that was brilliant and delightful. Thank you TO THE TABLE team for this productive event.
