MEET THE SPEAKERS



Everything you need is there

The Education Catering Exhibition running alongside The Main Event is the only exhibition dedicated 100% to catering in education and is the ideal place to find solutions to a wide range of requirements from food and beverage products which all help education caterers meet the nutrient guidelines in place, cashless payment and nutrition software solutions to furniture and dining room marketing.

The exhibition is open to all school caterers, managers and contract caterers to attend FREE of charge - REGISTER

Unrivalled networking opportunities

One of the greatest benefits of being at the Main Event is the unrivalled networking opportunities it offers. The Education Catering Exhibition is the chance to catch up with your suppliers and discuss new products, as well as source new ideas.  For delegates arriving on Wednesday, the accommodation package includes a place at the LACA ice breaker evening and of course there’s the LACA Awards for Excellence gala dinner once again on Thursday night where you can celebrate the achievements of industry colleagues.
