Commercial Kitchen’s event manager Katie Tyler commented: “The kitchen is one of the most important investments any operator has to make, and Commercial Kitchen is the most comprehensive trade show of its kind, in this country.
“This year’s visitors will enjoy opportunities to experience first-hand, ground breaking new products and services from leading industry innovators.
“Being able to compare what’s on offer in the market from the best brands in one visit, and get advice and inspiration to ensure you make the best decisions for your business, whatever your size or need, is what makes Commercial Kitchen such an invaluable experience to its visitors. It’s also what makes it such a unique proposition for its exhibitors.”
Show features include a free 2-day seminar programme, the Innovation Challenge Awards, and the CEDA Awards Gallery.
