The new show is being organised by Diversified Communications UK, which runs the Casual Dining and lunch! events.

While Julie Fell, marketing manager at Electrolux Professional said: “Commercial Kitchen is a fantastic concept and provides the market with a needed pure equipment focused show.”
Gamble Food Service Solutions’ sales director, Mike O’Keeffe, added: “After enjoying the huge success of being part of Diversified’s Casual Dining show, there was no way we could turn down the opportunity to be part of a tailored trade event such as Commercial Kitchen! It’s fresh and it is exciting and we will be there!”
Allan Turpin, national account manager at Nelson Glass & Dishwashing Machines added: “It’s great to have a show for exactly what we do and for the exact buyers that we want to do business with. We want to access the whole market and the launch of Commercial Kitchen will allow us to do that.”

A dedicated event of this type, for the catering industry, where heavy equipment suppliers can showcase their latest products is something we firmly believe the market needs.”
