BigHospitality, The Morning Advertiser, MCA Insight, Lumina Intelligence, World’s 50 Best, The Restaurant Show and the company’s suite of event brands and platforms will together launch the show targeting specifically the hospitality industry of today – and the future.
The Big Hospitality Expo will be the ultimate event for restaurateurs and chefs, casual dining operators as well as pubs and bars. The Restaurant Show, an exhibition also run by William Reed, that for over 30 years has attracted the UK’s best chefs, operators and exhibitors, will continue as part of the new BigHospitality Expo and will deliver even more for the restaurant sector.
As well as The Restaurant Show, the new exhibition will feature Catering Equipment Expo. William Reed is also bringing Hostech, its hospitality technology content and event platform, to the show to deliver the vital tech and marketing innovations to help operators drive efficiencies, increase profits, and enhance the customer experience.
The Big Hospitality Expo will showcase the best products, services, and innovations in the market, and will feature a packed agenda of industry insight, keynote sessions and panel discussions with industry leading speakers from across the industry. There will also be food, drink and business focused workshops, masterclasses, and networking events, of which more information will be announced in the coming months.
“Over the past few years, and even more so over the past 18 months, we have seen an evolution of the hospitality sector with operators showing their resilience and innovative spirit by diversifying into retail. The lines between types of operators are blurring as never before and there are many emerging brands that are driving change” says publisher of BigHospitality and director of the new exhibition Jo Wattar.
“William Reed is uniquely positioned as the only business with an extensive portfolio of news, content, event and exhibition platforms that connect with the hospitality industry year-round, and which also has brands in the retail space. As we come out of the pandemic and the hospitality industry recovers, it’s vital that we too adapt, invest and launch this new exhibition that will be better placed than ever to deliver what our communities need to run successful businesses and drive connections.”
