The UK’s most comprehensive event for the hospitality industry, Hotelympia 2014, returns to London’s ExCeL next week, with the event poised to host the largest gathering of dedicated catering equipment suppliers in more than a decade.
More than 160 companies will be showcasing commercial catering equipment or services of some variety.
With nearly 20,000 visitors reporting a specific purchasing interest in catering equipment at the last show in 2012, suppliers and distributors will be hoping to forge plenty of business partnerships during the course of the four-day event.
Hotelympia’s dedicated catering equipment section is being run in exclusive partnership with CESA — and the association confirmed recently that more members have signed up to exhibit in 2014 than ever before.
Visitors to the show will be greeted by a completely new look when the doors of the ExCeL swing open on Monday.
The creation of a single entrance layout and one extended hall are designed to make it easier for visitors to navigate the attractions without the disruption of the central boulevard, while new dedicated networking hubs will make the Hotelympia show floor the UK’s largest-ever hotbed of hospitality business activity.
“With a brand new look and a new date in the calendar, Hotelympia 2014 is set to unite the very best of catering equipment, food and drink, tabletop, design and technology, plus Salon Culinaire, under one roof,” said Toby Wand, managing director of the show’s organiser, Fresh Montgomery.
Catering Insight will be based on Stand 1583 so feel free to stop by and say hello!
