An array of international catering equipment suppliers are set to take centre stage at the Hospitality Show 2015, NEC Birmingham, 19–21 January.
In addition to displays by catering equipment suppliers, the CESA (Catering Equipment Suppliers Association) Innovation Zone will highlight significant new arrivals.
Visitors will also have the opportunity to attend a networking dinner held during the show.
“The CESA Innovation Zone will put the focus on leading-edge equipment that really has the potential to make a big impact with caterers going forward.”
A catering equipment networking dinner has also been arranged on the evening of 20 January with a menu by Adam Bennett, who is again Team UK’s representative at the 2015 Bocuse d’Or. The dinner will also support the British team’s participation at Bocuse D’or at the end of January, with veteran chef Brian Turner comparing the auction on the night.
Several companies, including Smeg, Grant Sous Vide and Nayati UK, will be making their first appearance at the event while Jestic will use the show as a platform to launch a new piece of equipment.
Other companies in attendance include Hobart (Equipment Sponsor on La Parade with The Bonnet Kitchen and warewash area with Foster providing refrigeration) and Manitowoc (Equipment Sponsor on Live Theatre with Gram providing refrigeration).
Toby Wand, managing director at Fresh Montgomery, which organises the event, says: “Catering equipment is very much at the heart of the show as it’s important that operators keep up-to-date with the ever-evolving world of catering equipment because it is such a key element of their business.
“The Hospitality Show is a fantastic opportunity to see what equipment will be arriving in the year ahead, view everything under one roof, talk with suppliers about their ranges and see what the future holds in terms of equipment updates and new technology.”
