Penang International Halal Expo & Conference 2017

Halal Penang is once again proud to host the 8th Penang International Halal Expo and Conference 2017 (PIHEC) from 24-26 February 2017 at Setia Spice, Penang. The Halal Conference will be presented at the Olive Tree Hotel Penang. Since its inauguration in 2010, PIHEC has congregated approximately 180,000 visitors and more than 1,500 companies from 18 countries.

Now in its 8th year, PIHEC 2017 promises to be an event not to be missed for international and domestic halal players from across the regions of Southeast Asia, West Asia & Europe to expand business
horizons, showcase some of the best Halal products & services, discover emerging trends and build network with potential clients in the halal industry.

PIHEC 2017 will also be showcasing the 4th edition of the Penang International Halal Chef Challenge (PIHCC), B2B Networking Sessions, Trade Talks and seminars on Halal certification and standards, a one-day conference and product showcases of “Halal Local Delicacies” featuring best Halal street foods and delicacies, and also not forgetting business opportunities and grooming sessions for entrepreneurs and industry players, business matching, celebrity chef demos’ including exciting stage forums and performances.


The Halal Conference brings focus to Halal Lifestyle as its theme, to be held at the Olive Tree Hotel Penang, on Saturday 25 February 2017.

Fellow academia and captains of industry will share profound knowledge and experiences on innovation and entrepreneurship, moral ethics as well as health and global unity which are all best defined through the theme of Halal Lifestyle. The Halal Conference 2017 sets to draw scholars and business communities, industry players, researchers and also students to experience the awareness, challenges, issues and solutions towards a better Halal sustainable living.


The World Curry Festival (WCF) has been established as PIHEC’S main highlight for the past two years since its inception in 2015. In 2017, we are focusing at the possibility of WCF to be staged as a “stand alone” event to be held coinciding with the annual school holidays in March.
Once decision has been made, it will be an outdoor event at the Padang Kota Lama fronting Penang’s historic monument of the City Hall; an event that celebrates the love and passion for food, culture and community. Foodies from far and wide will be treated with tantalising street food, scrumptious of market stall goodies as well as variety of cultural performances.
