Restaurant Show

working in partnership with industry

Happening this October, the Restaurant Show is set to be the place to be for hospitality, as one of the leading trade events for its sector. The show actively works together with some of the most important associations in the hospitality arena.

This year, the Show is teaming up with seven key organisations to create an exhibition that delivers a series of action- packed seminars and educational features that will not only inspire visitors, but also provide them with ideas and advice to make a real difference to their business. The three day event held at Earls Court, London will host a number of ‘Business Bootcamp sessions, as well as the National Chef and Young National Chef of the Year awards. A series of relevant and topical seminar talks will also take pace on site to ensure the show is an informative success. Rachel Quigley, Show Director, comments: “Having been involved right in the heart of the restaurant business, I understand the value and impact that these organisations have on our industry and those working in it. “We’re really pleased that they have come on board and are working closely with us. From the interactive workshops and demonstrations to the business briefi ngs and seminars, working in partnership will ensure our visitors are presented with a wide range of impressive seminars and networking opportunities and leave armed with valuable commercial advice and contacts.”
