FEA has revealed new additions to its speaker line-up for its 2021 Industry Conference taking place on 15-16 September at Chesford Grange, Kenilworth.

Terry Boniface, assistant director, electronics and machinery, at the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Simon Stenning, founder of Future Foodservice will be addressing the delegates.

Over the past 3years Boniface has led BEIS’s engagement with the electronic and machinery sectors, during which time the focus has been very much on Brexit and the pandemic. He knows the foodservice equipment industry well, having worked directly with FEA, and has attended meetings with FEA members as well as coming to previous Conferences.

Boniface will talk about the latest government thinking and, with over 40 years’ experience of civil service departments, he brings a well-versed understanding of the machinations of Whitehall to the conference.

Foodservice market analyst Stenning’s most recent future foresight report is ‘The Rebuilding of Hospitality, 2021 to 2025’, which offers detailed forecasts for each sector of the market. He’ll use his 30+ years of experience of working in, developing, analysing and commentating on the industry to give the conference an insight into what the future holds.

FEA has also announced that council member and chair of Advance Group Steve Coates has agreed to join the Conference Business Panel session, which will focus on recovery post-pandemic and post-Brexit.

Early bird booking rates for the FEA Industry Conference are available until Wednesday 30 June.  As an example, the full package for a FEA member, including 2 nights’ accommodation and dinner, is normally £695, but with the early bird discount that drops to £595.
