Market Catering

Market Catering - At Daily, Weekly or Farmers Markets


What is market catering?

Markets offer opportunities for catering businesses to benefit from regular work on an established pitch. Many markets in the UK have been in existence in one form or another for hundreds of years; many UK towns and cities were founded and grew around their market, like Market Harborough and Birmingham.

Most markets have some opportunities for food traders, regardless of their main focus. In recent years food-to-go has begun to play a greater role in provision at markets and has started a bit of a renaissance in the market industry.

THE RESTAURANT SHOW 2019: BIGGER AND BETTER

by Sophie Haigh | Sep 17, 2019

Taking place 30th September - 2nd October at Olympia London, The Restaurant Show will return for 2019 with a brand-new all-encompassing culinary experience. With previous years attracting thousands of enthused visitors, this year is set to be bigger and better than ever before.  


The Restaurant Show sits at the heart of the hospitality industry, having united the very best chefs, restaurateurs, contract caterers, sommeliers and hoteliers for the past 30 years. The three-day event promises to combine valuable insight and the latest innovations with topical debates around the industry’s newest trends and challenges.  

Featuring both the Bar & Pub and Catering Equipment Expo, attendees will be offered the tools, inspiration and unique networking opportunities to help them succeed in the ever-competitive hospitality industry.  

HOSPITALITY TRENDS & WORDS OF WISDOM

With the Global Restaurant Industry expected to reach 3.8 trillion by the end of 2019, the show will cover some of the mega trends influencing consumers including eating out technology, food culture and healthier eating.  

Some of the industry’s most recognisable names will take to the live stage to cover thought-provoking sessions where visitors are encouraged to interact and ask the experts any burning questions. While the full line-up is yet to be revealed the programme is guaranteed to be bursting with inspiring stories, expert wisdom and the industry’s most recent - and often exclusive - MCA research. 
 

THE LATEST & GREATEST PRODUCTS 

Creativity and innovation will be at the forefront of the exhibition this year as our 350+ enthusiastic suppliers fill Olympia London with mouthwatering smells, fascinating displays, and the latest and greatest products available to the hospitality industry today.

As you explore the aisles, you will be greeted by the personal touch of each supplier offering opportunities to taste-test new food and drink trends, try out brand new equipment and technology, and uncover some of the inspiration behind the trendiest interior design available on the market today.

Last year, over 75% of visitors rated The Restaurant Show’s exhibition as ‘excellent’ for finding new products and services, with nearly half intending on placing orders with at least one of the exhibitors they met at the show.


INDUSTRY RECOGNISED COMPETITIONS & LIVE ENTERTAINMENT

Perhaps one of the most loved parts of The Restaurant Show is The Competition Theatre, packed full of passionate professionals all under immense pressure to impress the judges and live audience. With an exciting new twist for 2019, The Restaurant Show will play UK host to the most prestigious gastronomic competition in the world; Bocuse d’Or.  

Visitors can also look forward to the return of renowned industry competitions; Kikkoman Masters, Craft Guild National Chef of the Year and Young National Chef of the Year, and the Junior, Apprentice and Senior Compass Chef of the Year.


SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE
 

The Restaurant Show promises to leave each and every visitor feeling inspired and excited about the restaurant industry as a whole, as well as bridging the gap between industry leaders, suppliers and hospitality professionals.

With the doors opening this month we wouldn’t want you to miss out on this trailblazing programme of industry-leading speakers, meaningful discussions, and unique learning opportunities. Make sure you register now for free at https://therestaurantshow.co.uk.
