Building on the continuing success of the New Start Scotland Exhibition and the Scottish Business Exhibition as Scotland’s biggest business event, and after the successful launch event in 2014, Restaurant & Takeaway Business Live (RTBLive) is back once again.
The show will be held at the SECC, Glasgow on the 12th and 13th November 2015, and will run alongside New Start Scotland (for Start-Up companies and those with up to 50 employees) and The Scottish Business Exhibition (for SMEs and larger companies with over 50 employees), and all are completely free for visitors to attend.
RTBLive is aimed at the growing food service industry in Scotland, and is the ideal place for restaurateurs and street food vendors to come and find those products and suppliers they need to grow and develop in this highly competitive marketplace.
Ceri Rogers, Event Director, explains, “We wanted to create a show that would provide a unique business event in Scotland, bringing together a wide variety of suppliers under one roof that would service a particular market segment. These exhibitors might not normally be involved with our regular Scottish Business shows, but many of the business owners would attend for the other business services anyway, so we want to give them something special.”
“Scotland is a fantastically varied marketplace for food, ranging from some of the UK’s best street food and takeaways, right the way up to Michelin starred restaurants and high class eateries. With some of the best produce in the world being grown right here, it’s time this was recognised with a world class business event that can help open up the Scottish market and allow business owners access to the best suppliers & services out there.”
All the shows feature an impressive free seminar programme with speakers covering a wide variety of topics. Nick Nairn, restaurateur, celebrity chef and food campaigner, was the headline seminar speaker last year, with Ruaridh MacDonald, Deputy Chief Executive of Macdonald Hotels and Resorts, already signed up to provide seminars and workshops throughout the RTBLive event in 2015, with more guest speakers to be confirmed shortly. Other features include Technique Demonstrations, a Food Technology Showcase and Social Media & Branding Workshops.
“With about 8,000 visitors coming to our Business Exhibitions last year, we are anticipating an additional 3,000 visitors for RTBLive alone” says Ceri. “We have already generated plenty of interest among delegates and exhibitors, and we are looking forward to very successful launch event.”
