Horeca

Horeca is an extremely handy Dutch word for describing the hotel, restaurant and café trade (ho-re-ca) – broader in context than ‘catering industry’ and much more punchy. The horeca sector has its own massive trade fair, Horecava, in which the ‘va’ stands for vak (profession). The word horeca is already used in Portugal and Lebanon and is gaining acceptance elsewhere, as a quick Google search will show.
