Commercial Kitchen’s group event director Chris Brazier said that CEDA’s distributor members would be a key part of the buying audience for the show. “It’s clear that we all agree that a dedicated trade event for the commercial kitchen sector is long overdue and will benefit distributors, manufacturers and end-users alike. CEDA’s strong passion for excellence in design, supply, project-management and installation matches our own and we are delighted to finally be bringing this industry the trade show it truly deserves.”
