New products, new exhibitors, new ideas and a new business focus will all be ushered in on a wave of New Year optimism as the Birmingham NEC opens its doors from 19th-21st January, for three days of insight and inspiration.
Toby Wand, Managing Director at Fresh Montgomery comments: “We’re tremendously excited to welcome people from all corners of the UK to our doors, to yet again to help kick start the business year into life. In 2015 our core focus is around the best of British – a launch pad for everything new and great in British hospitality. I urge anyone looking for that spark of inspiration to take time out, and experience the most relevant, business-focused trade show in the hospitality calendar.”
The Hospitality Show is the place where the UK comes to network and do serious business, consistently attracting high quality exhibitors and special guests sourced from across the hospitality spectrum. Focus areas include: hotels, restaurants, pubs, cafés, delis, careers and the cost sector, with the show providing a glittering showcase for cutting edge products and services from the core fields of food & drink, technology, catering equipment, interiors and tableware.
Key attractions such as the Business Briefing Stage – the beating heart of the hospitality show floor – will welcome laser guided insight, debate and discussion on the most relevant topics and trends making the headlines, while show stalwart and one of the world’s most prestigious culinary competitions, Salon Culinaire, returns in style with a number of format changes guided from chef research. Salon Culinaire includes Live Theatre classes and Salon Display – both sponsored by Compass UK & Ireland – which showcases hand-crafted works in fat, chocolate, marzipan and other foodstuffs. Fine dining experience, La Parade des Chefs will this year be sponsored by Coup de Pates/Delice de France.
With British food and drink currently very much in the spotlight, we are pleased to announce that the Laverstoke Park Farm Taste Experience is set to debut at the Hospitality Show. The brainchild of former F1 world champion-turned-farmer Jody Scheckter, the Hampshire-based organic and biodynamic farm is set to relocate to the Hospitality Show floor for three days. Visitors will be able to witness for themselves the unique, delicious produce that is crafted on the farm. Available to sample will be their renowned mozzarella made from fresh Buffalo milk, Buffalo fillet steaks, award-winning lamb, tasty black pudding and their new Buffalo Gouda.
Jody comments: “With British food and drink’s growing reputation, we’re delighted to bring the Laverstoke Park Farm Taste Experience to the Hospitality Show. There are some great exhibitors at the show and we are proud to be part of that.”
