Catering equipment industry organisations have geared up for Hotelympia at London’s Excel Centre this week, with CESA and ENSE aiming to assist suppliers and distributors.
CESA has released a one-off product guide to help equipment buyers find new launches and latest energy-saving technologies.
The CESA New Product Guide includes names like BGL Rieber, Gram, Hobart, Victor, Williams and Winterhalter.
As well as listing new models it highlights three characteristics – energy saving, water saving and labour saving – along with each design’s key features and benefits.
The Guide also lists other information that may affect the buying decision, such as the suppliers’ accreditations and where their manufacturing is based.
“New products are a key attraction for visitors to the show,” said Keith Warren, director of CESA.
“We asked members who are launching models to supply the information in an easy to assimilate format. That’s made the Guide a quick and efficient source of data, so it should help generate interest and sales at Hotelympia.
“We hope the Guide will also serve as a useful resource for operators, distributors and consultants after the show.”
Free copies of the Guide will be available from the CESA stand, 4270, at Hotelympia, or they can be supplied on request by post. The Guide can also be downloaded as a PDF from here.
ENSE’s Apple Watch giveaway
Buying consortium ENSE has also challenged its distributor members to visit all of its 15 participating supplier members’ stands at the show and learn more about their product offering.
The purchasing group is giving away 10 Apple watches to ENSE dealers who complete the challenge – validation stickers will be available on all supplier member stands.
Its exhibiting supplier members are BGL Rieber, Bradshaw, Charvet, Gamble Foodservice, Gram, Hubbard, Instanta, Manitowoc, Metcalfe, Monika, Sammic, Valentine, Valera, Victor and Williams.
