"As a LACA Partner of many years, we find the LACA Main event one of, if not our biggest and most successful industry events of the year. Having such a diverse delegate base of Local Authority Caterers; Contract Caterers and Multi-Academy Trusts, really gives us a chance to showcase our new Education Solutions and products across the sector and of course to catch up with many existing customers.
"I always say to other suppliers and potential exhibitors who are thinking about whether they should attend, if you want to play in the Education Sector, this is the 'must attend' event - you will never get as many keen and interested school caterers in one place." Mark Taylor MIH, Foodservice Customer Controller, Premier Foods
"I have been exhibiting at the LACA The Main Event organised by Dewberry Redpoint for over 10 years. Their organisational skills both pre-event and on the day are second to none. Audience figures, so important when an organisation has invested time and resource in exhibiting at a show, are always healthy, both in terms of quality and quantity." Christine Forrest, Marketing Manager, Pasta King
"The LACA main event is probably our most successful show. The attendees are genuinely interested in stopping and talking to you, regardless of what you are selling and whether they are interested in your products at that particular moment. It’s also good to see regular faces all under one roof." Steve Kirkby, Sales Director, Tablecraft

LACA provides us with the perfect platform to meet with the decision makers from the education sector under one roof, which would certainly take longer to do if I had individual meetings up and down the country. Looking forward to another great LACA event this year. Matt Garland, PIP Organic
