Education catering exhibition
Running alongside LACA The Main Event, it is the only show in the UK which is dedicated to catering in education.
With caterers facing a greater challenge than ever before to deliver the right meal at the right price, the exhibition will provide visitors with the ideal environment in which to meet suppliers and manufacturers who can offer products and solutions to help them.
The Education Catering Exhibition is an unrivalled opportunity to source new ideas and innovations and compare a range of suppliers under one roof. Over 160 exhibitors will showcase food and beverages, equipment, systems and services. Take a look at the exhibitor list and floorplan.
A live demonstration area that will feature a series of sessions featuring the latest food trends and how you can adapt and implement into your service.
