With just two months to go, registrations are open for the expanded and re-located Restaurant Show 2015
This year the three day exhibition, which opens on 5 October, has moved to a bigger and better venue: London’s premier exhibition venue, Olympia.
This years show will feature many of the top names from the restaurant and foodservice industry including Michel Roux Jr and Raymond Blanc OBE as well as over 350 exhibitors from across the sector.
And if that’s not enough, visitors can also take advantage of expert insights on The Stage where the industry’s leading lights will share their experiences and offer their tips for success. Notable speakers this year include Eric Chavot, chef de patron at Brasserie Chavot who will discuss family-inspired French cooking and James 'Jocky' Petrie who will give a rare insight into life in the Gordon Ramsay Group.
Other highlights include Stephen Terry, owner and chef at acclaimed Welsh gastropub the Hardwick Arms who will give a sneak preview of the ideas infusing his hotly-anticipated new book. Plus Neil James Rankin, executive chef of innovative London eating destination Smokehouse, discussing how to take slow cooking to the next level.
The Show will also feature the final of The Craft Guild of Chefs National Chef of the Year. Plus the Best New Idea Award chosen from the most innovative ideas from the show floor and voted for by visitors.
This year the event has also extended its reach with a new complementary show: Conscious Hospitality Show. Absolutely in tune with the evolving awareness of today’s diners, Conscious Hospitality Show will address the issues they care about most, such as sustainability, local sourcing and ethical trading. It brings together over 50 suppliers from across the sector and showcases a range of products and services – from eco-friendly cleaning products to food waste management services and catering equipment to gluten free beer and organic meat.
Elizabeth Duncan, The Restaurant Show commercial director, said: “The Restaurant Show has really stepped up another gear this year and we’re looking forward to officially opening the doors on 5 October. Visitors will have plenty to feast their eyes on with a whole host of new exhibitors, an exciting speaker line-up and action-packed competitions. Each year we aim to bring to bear the latest trends in the industry to ensure decision makers at all businesses with a food and drink element are well equipped to attract customers. This year’s show will be no exception, making it a must-attend.”
Conscious Hospitality Show will run alongside The Restaurant Show 5 - 7 October 2015 at Olympia, London. For further info, visit www.therestaurantshow.co.uk
