This year’s CEDA and CESA-organised technical conference will see a range of expert speakers deliver updates and seminars on the latest industry specific topics.
Taking place on 10 October at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel, the conference is for anyone involved in project sales and management, design and after sales service, including senior engineers.
This year’s conference includes sessions on TR19, the internal cleanliness of ventilation systems; fire suppression systems and the greater emphasis that is now being put of fire prevention in commercial kitchens in the light of the Grenfell disaster.
Further topics include waste regulations and other relevant standards and regulations updates; the use of LP gas for commercial catering events, street food and mobile catering, a seminar about kitchen ventilation which will discuss the impact of ventilation standard DW172, 12 months after its introduction, and also the control of odour and noise following the withdrawal of the DEFRA guidance document.
Hosted again this year by Richard West, who will be presenting his own thoughts on how to seize new opportunities, there will also be an exhibition and opportunities for networking during the day and evening dinner.
One previous visitor to the conference is Steve Skivington of ScoMac Catering Equipment, who commented: “Listening to the speakers, who are often the people setting our standards, I always leave the conference with far more knowledge regarding our industry than when I arrived.”
Another, ABDA’s Gary Mackness, added: “It’s an excellent opportunity to learn from industry specialists. Sitting in a room full of your peers and discovering common issues that are raised in Q&A sessions are really useful to take back and share with colleagues within your own business.”
