The biggest hospitality show dedicated to hoteliers and caterers in the South and South West returns to Bournemouth BIC next year. Event organiser Evisstar is promising a range of new and exciting features to attract the highest ever visitor numbers when doors to the Hotel & Catering Show 2015 open on 17th and 18th March.
Show favourites such as the ‘Liquid’ tasting zone return, with producers and wholesalers showcasing everything from speciality teas, coffees and soft drinks right through to beers and spirits. Mixologists and bartenders from across the region will also be hosting live demonstrations and interactive workshops for visitors.
The ‘Artisan Producers Market’ is back by popular demand – this time with a larger area dedicated to highlighting the very best local and regional produce that the South and South West has to offer. The Live Cooking Stage once again promises demonstrations from a host of leading chefs, who will be on-hand to impart their knowledge, skills and experience.
A number of exciting NEW features have also been introduced for 2015, including the much anticipated ‘Grazin’ Kitchen’. An area dedicated to manufacturers and distributors of cooking equipment, the wor king kitchen will feature live demos and delicious tastings, with suppliers and their development chefs creating the perfect ‘grazing’ area for visitors.
Boasting shorter and sharper sessions than previous years, the 2015 seminar programme ‘Hospitality Talks’ will cover everything to do with running a hospitality business. The 15min sessions will give visitors succinct tips to help them develop their business, with talks from a number of key industry figures.
Richard Joslin, Managing Director is excited by what 2015 has to offer both visitors and exhibitors: ‘’We made some exciting changes when taking over the event two years ago, and were very pleased with the growth success of the 2013 and 2014 shows. Having received valuable feedback from exhibitors and visitors, we’ve now made further improvements to the show and introduced a number of exciting new features that will enhance the show experience for all. We truly believe that 2015 will be the biggest and best Hotel & Catering Show yet.”
