At the show more than 350 suppliers will showcase their most recent launches, with visitors able to source everything from food and drink products to EPOS and furniture for a 360º experience. Visitors can also glean information in the Centre Stage theatre where cooking demonstrations with leading chefs, panel debates on hot industry topics, and food and drink matching will provide plenty of food for thought; while visitors can take a break in Street Food Feast to learn about and sample the best of the booming street food scene.
David Mulcahy, craft and food development director at Sodexo UK & Ireland and Craft Guild of Chefs vice president, commented: “The food and drink industry is fast-moving and it’s important to keep up with the latest foodie trends in order to stay relevant and win business.
“The Restaurant Show is an endless source of information and innovation – thousands of products are on display and you can gain access to some of the industry’s most respected names, all in a very short space of time. By networking with industry peers and meeting with new suppliers we are able to ensure our offerings deliver against consumer expectations.”
Celebrating excellence, the show hosts the finals of the Craft Guild’s National Chef of the Year and Young National Chef of the Year 2014. The National Chef of the Year competition, running since 1972, is one of the UK’s most respected and sought after culinary titles.
