This year, the RestArt Forum was visited by more than 2290 guests from Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan. Many restaurateurs noted that this event is much larger than those that took place in Ukraine earlier.
The RestArt Forum has become a high-profile international event, which confirms that the Ukrainian restaurant community is striving to reach the world level thanks to its innovations, technologies and methods.
