Young? Driven? Want To Get Into The Food Business? There’s A Free Conference For That!

by Keanu AzmanNovember 16, 2015

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Well in our case, it’s food! I’m pretty sure we speak for most people when we say that. Besides, if you really think about it… what makes the world go round if not food?

In conjunction with the 1 ASEAN Entrepreneurship Summit (1AES), FriedChillies will be organizing the inaugural ASEAN Young Food Entrepreneurs Conference from 18 – 19 November.

Ever dropped by Taman Tun Dr. Ismail and had a look at the mobile restaurant boom? Experienced food truckers will also be present to share tips and tricks on how to start your own food truck business!

During the two-day conference, participants will be able to network, attend talks and discussions, as well as join entrepreneurship workshops.

And did we mention that this conference is free? Don’t miss an opportunity like this if you’ve always wanted to get into food and hospitality; seats are limited and available only upon registration so register away!

“FriedChillies runs Malaysia’s first local food network, and in this capacity we created the ASEAN Young Food Entrepreneurs Conference to connect young food entrepreneurs across the ASEAN region. This is to promote business, friendship, across border trade and innovation,” stated Mohd Adly Rizal, Chief Executive Officer of FriedChillies.

Among speakers dishing out advice at the conference is Nilamsari Setiono, co-founder of Baba Rafi, the world’s biggest kebab chain with over 1200 locations in 7 countries!

The ASEAN Young Food Entrepreneurs Conference will be held at Hall 1 of the Prince Court Medical Centre (specifically in the car park area behind the medical centre). There will be air-conditioned marquees and some of the best KL food trucks to satisfy your every craving.

By the way, conference participants will get a daily RM15 coupon to spend at these trucks. A free two-day conference with free coupons to spend on food? How much better can this get, really?

There will be shuttle services running from the Ampang Park LRT station, the KLCC multi-storey car park and the Bukit Bintang monorail station to Hall 1, Prince Court Medical Centre. Note that some roads will be closed so it’s best to grab a shuttle!

How to register? Just head on to 1AES and do it online with zero hassle.

See you there, food lovers and aspiring entrepeneurs!
