The Catering Equipment Distributors Association (CEDA) has confirmed Michael Pawlyn as the keynote speaker for its annual conference this year.
Pawlyn made his name as one of the key architects involved in the world-renowned Eden Project in Cornwall and will speak about his experiences during the conference business day on May 4th.
“Michael is an accomplished speaker who has presented to the Royal Society of Arts and Google,” said CEDA. “He will naturally link into the conference’s ‘Tides of Change’ theme considering how sustainable architecture has a place in catering, and expect some insights into biomimicry in architecture!”
This year’s CEDA conference is a special one as it marks the 40th anniversary of the industry body. CEDA now counts more than 80 members among its ranks, which collectively account for an overwhelming portion of catering equipment sales made in the UK each year.
The CEDA conference, which will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Oxfordshire, is held in partnership with FCSI (UK & Ireland) and Cedabond.
