CESA is inviting dealers to investigate the latest trends in light equipment at this year’s Light Equipment & Tableware Forum.
On Tuesday 22-Wednesday 23 May at Whittlebury Hall Hotel in Northamptonshire, major sector suppliers will be available to meet dealer sales staff and conduct product training on the latest styles and innovative gadgets.
Delegates attend for free, with their ticket including overnight accommodation at Whittlebury Hall and attendance at the LET awards dinner.
Last year’s Forum played host to nearly 100 delegates representing 25 distributors, with 19 suppliers demonstrating their latest launches.
The Forum is conducted in a similar format to speed dating, with groups of delegates spending time with each exhibitor company, allowing them to get in-depth information and insight about new products.
This year’s Forum is the fifteenth and will be held at The Whittlebury Hall Hotel. It will play host to 20 exhibitors. These comprise: Clifton Food Range, Contacto, Dalebrook Supplies, Denby Pottery Company, Dualit, Eddingtons, Elia International Ltd, FEM, I Grunwerg, ICTC, Metcalfe Catering, Mitchell and Cooper, Neville UK Plc, Pro Foodservice Reps, Rexmartins, Row and Sons, Signature FSE, T&G Woodware, Testo, The DRH Collection.
During the networking dinner on the Tuesday evening, awards presented will include the Distributor’s Cup, the Sales Professional of the Year and the Donald Bird Award, which commemorates significant contributions to light equipment and tableware.
Stephen Goodliff, the chair of the CESA LET Group, commented: “Last year, the trends we saw included advanced kitchen equipment and a diverse range of unique tableware styles.
“In an industry where operators are always looking for the next big thing, the Forum is a great way for sales people to discover the products that will help their customers stand out from the crowd.”
