Dealers with questions about any aspect of catering equipment can head to the CESA stand (140) at The Great Hospitality Show in the NEC Birmingham on 23-25 January 2017.
The association will be sharing its knowledge database, offering its expertise as a practical resource for anyone in the foodservice industry.
For example, the new CESA website includes sections populated with guides and ‘how to’ articles.
On stand will be the association’s latest Equipment Guides – documents that give overviews of various equipment categories along with articles on pertinent topics such as legislation, maintenance tips and the latest technology trends. These are free to show visitors.
CESA’s stand is at the heart of the CESA Innovation Zone, where leading equipment companies will be showing their latest designs and concepts. “The Zone is where operators and dealers find out what’s new in catering technology in 2017,” said Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA. “With many new product launches on show, it promises to give a fascinating insight into the future for anyone involved in purchasing or using catering equipment.”
CESA will also be promoting its CFSP (Certified Food Service Professional) programme. With in excess of 400 CFSP-accredited alumna in the industry, it is gaining recognition as a key training and professional development tool.
The scheme gives students – both suppliers and operators – a holistic understanding of the way commercial kitchens operate. At the Great Hospitality Show, CESA will be talking about new training modules being developed during the coming year.
