The organisers of this year’s Fry Fast Food Show have announced that the event will move into a larger hall this year to accommodate more suppliers.
The show — which claims to be the UK’s largest annual trade exhibition for the Fish Frying and Fast Food industry — will be held in the 4,000 square metre Jaguar Hall at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena.
Now in its 15th year, the show will feature more than 80 stands highlighting the latest specialist equipment and services for the sector.
The one-day event, scheduled for Sunday 16th September, is attended by a range of operators from fish and chip shops and mobile caterers to sports stadia and ice cream parlors.
This will be the fourth year that the event has been held at the Ricoh Arena and Serena Bracken, from the show’s organiser Pybus Events, said record numbers are expected.
“We had around 800 visitors in 2011 and this year we already have over 1,000 pre-registered visitors so we are confident of achieving our highest ever visitor numbers,” she said. “We have arranged to take more space in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall because we have already sold 50 stands and it means we can grow even further if necessary.”
Bracken added that this year’s show will feature a new pizza and takeaway area along with an outside catering section to reflect trends in the industry.
“On the success of last year’s seminar session – which was standing room only – we have also extended the seminar theatre, providing more opportunities for visitors to listen to and learn from a host of industry experts,” she said.
