The Stonehouse Trade Show is to run alongside Food & Bev Live at Citywest, Dublin on 6th February 2018.
Pictured are Brian Elliott, White Hat Brand Manager & Foodservice and Alcohol Coordinator at Stonehouse; Niamh Kenny, Food & Bev Live Show Manager and Mark Murphy, Head Chef at Citywest Hotel & Conference Centre.
Teaming up to bring its annual show to Food & Bev Live 2018, Stonehouse, Ireland’s leading independent wholesale company, will take over the Lakes Suite on the second floor of the Convention Centre at Citywest, where its White Hat brand and product portfolio will take centre stage offering its members’ customers a unique range of special offers and new product launches.
Attracting thousands of visitors from the food, hospitality and technology sectors, Food & Bev Live is a two-day extravaganza of foodservice excellence bringing together National skills finals, live demonstrations, new product launches and unique networking opportunities. The show has been building in stature over the past few years and now offers visitors innovative ideas, new products, technology and the business advice they need to grow their business in the year ahead.
White Hat Brand Manager & Foodservice and Alcohol Coordinator at Stonehouse, Brian Elliott, comments: “As one of the most prominent foodservice & hospitality exhibitions in the Irish calendar, Stonehouse and its 24-strong member companies are proud to team up with Food & Bev Live 2018. With both events taking place under one roof, we’re confident that our collective audience will now have an even greater reason to attend both shows.
“Taking place alongside Food & Bev Live, our 2018 event is set to capitalise on a revitalised foodservice sector. With an abundance of promotions available at the show, from over 45 suppliers, the Stonehouse event will complement all that Food & Bev Live has to offer to the foodservice and hospitality industries.”
John Cunningham, Chairman of IFSA, owners of CATEX and Food & Bev Live, added:
“We’re delighted to welcome Stonehouse on board, and for our visitors, staging both shows under one roof, makes seeing the latest products and services, much more time efficient. Our combined efforts will hopefully translate into more visitors than ever before attending Food & Bev Live, and we’re very much hoping that this is a partnership that’s set to continue. Having Stonehouse on-board as a partner alongside the Restaurant Association of Ireland, The Panel Of Chefs, The Bartenders Association, Euro-toques, The Speciality Coffee Association, and many other Industry bodies will insure the quality and success of Food and Bev live 2018.”
Following the success of CATEX 2017, IFSA is working hard to ensure that Food & Bev Live works harder than ever before to deliver for both exhibitors and visitors alike. Next year’s event is set to showcase the very best of foodservice, hospitality and technology equipment, all under one roof.
Expected to be the biggest show to date, Food & Bev Live is the only event in 2018 with ALL industry support. In a first for the sector, Food & Bev Live and new event partners, the Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI), will host the Global Hospitality Tech Summit 2018 - set to be Ireland’s only conference dedicated to examining recent trends in technology which are forming the future of the hospitality industry.
Food & Bev Live is taking place on the 6th & 7th February 2018 at the Citywest Events Centre.
