More than 80 catering equipment dealers from across the UK will be heading up to the Fife coast over the next two days, as CEDA’s 2013 annual conference gets underway.
Tomorrow will see CEDA partners and members take part in exclusive networking events throughout the day, while the association will also hold its AGM.
The theme for this year’s conference is ‘The Art of War’ and a number of eminent speakers have been lined up to provide an insight and forecast into the foodservice sector and beyond on Friday.
Keynote speakers will address topics such as ‘What’s in store from the EU?’ and ‘Competing against the downturn’, while a panel of experienced business specialists and leaders will again be participating in a ‘View from the Hill’ discussion on current trends.
This year’s panel includes John Vincent, founder of Leon Restaurants and government advisor on school meals, James Horler, chief executive of 3Sixty restaurants, Stephen Carter, managing director of Cameron House Resort and Phil Hooper, corporate affairs director at Sodexo.
The business day will be rounded off by an entertaining presentation by top motivational speaker Jim Lawless, author of Taming Tigers.
The 2013 conference is again held in partnership with the FCSI and Cedabond.
