Distributors are signing up in their droves for the upcoming CESA Heavy Equipment Forum.
The distributors will enjoy 30 minutes with each of the 15 suppliers including Rational, Falcon and Williams, just some of the big names that attended last year as well as first time participants BGL Rieber and Hubbard Systems.
The suppliers will take full advantage of the time to showcase their products and services to distributors’ sales representatives at the forum, which will be held at Whittlebury Hall Hotel, Towcester on 1 October.
Returning exhibitors from last year’s event include Electrolux, First Choice, Gram, Grande Cuisine, Jestic, Manitowoc, Retigo, R.H.Hall, Victor and Wexiodisk.
CESA runs the forum in association with CEDA, Cedabond and ENSE.
“The day offers a focused, time-efficient way to keep up with the latest catering equipment technologies and techniques,” said Simon Frost, chair of CESA.
“It delivers professional product training, covering areas such as service and technical support and environmental approaches as well as new developments and leading-edge technology.”
The day is followed by the Heavy Equipment Forum Awards presentation dinner.
Places at the forum are free to foodservice professionals, provided they are involved in the selling or specifying of catering equipment.
Also included free are places at the awards dinner, plus free overnight accommodation at Whittlebury Hall Hotel, including breakfast, on the night of 1 October.
Attendance at the event is also worth three points towards the CFSP Evaluation of Experience.
“Last year we were oversubscribed, so anyone planning to come in 2015 should book up as soon as possible,” added Frost.
