CESA is partnering with Hotelympia to manage a new ‘Meet the Buyer’ programme at next year’s event, from 29 February to 3 March at London’s ExCel centre.
The scheme will see buyers’ requirements matched to the exhibitor whose equipment best meets their needs. They will then be able to speak directly and confidentially to manufacturers on everything from technical specifications to energy saving benefits. They will also be able to compare and contrast kit.
CESA director, Keith Warren, said: “As the largest hospitality exhibition in the UK calendar, CESA and its membership is proud to support and continue our successful and established association with Hotelympia, which helps to fund many of CESA’s activities throughout the year.
“The 2016 event is set to have the largest selection of catering equipment on show anywhere in the UK, while the new Meet the Buyer programme adds yet another compelling reason for visitors to make London the only destination they need visit for all their equipment requirements in 2016 and beyond.”
Toby Wand, MD of the exhibition’s organiser, Fresh Montgomery, added: “We’re delighted that yet again CESA will be playing an integral role in Hotelympia. The 2016 event will see the largest collection of catering equipment ever witnessed under one roof – the most innovative suppliers showcasing the very latest, cutting edge technology. The pioneering Meet The Buyer programme – just one of many new initiatives that we will be introducing – will add yet more weight to an event that will be impossible to top.”
Hotelympia 2016 is expected to unveil its largest-ever catering equipment line up, including almost 20 international exhibitors.
