This year’s CEDA Conference is set to take a peek into what the ‘Next Generation’ of the foodservice market will look like in the UK.
The event will take place on 14-15 April at The Hilton, St George’s Park, Burton upon Trent.
A panel of experts led by CGA Peach’s Peter Martin will look at the trends that are shaping the consumer offer, and vice versa the panel will consider factors like the rise of street food, casual dining and the changing face of pubs, plus how this is, and will, impact on foodservice design, equipment and related services.
Talking about the ‘Next Generation’ theme for the 2016 Conference, CEDA director general, Adam Mason, said: “Talking to CEDA members, partners and our wider group of associates in foodservice, the focus on what is around the corner for foodservice in the UK is apt.
“It ties in very well with the launch last year of our CEDA Academy, bringing together the next leaders of the sector, and of course the introduction of the annual CEDA Rising Star Award at the 2015 Grand Prix Awards recognising the younger people who are coming into prominence.
“Indeed CEDA as a whole is moving into its own ‘Next Generation’ with the launch of the association’s new five year development strategy at the conference.”
