Visitor registration for this year’s Commercial Kitchen show is now open.
This year’s exhibition will take place on 23-24 September 2021 at ExCeL London alongside Casual Dining and Lunch!, effectively creating a ‘hospitality supershow’ for the industry.
Chris Brazier, group event director at organiser Diversified Communications, said: “There’s no denying it’s been a tough year for everyone in the hospitality industry. So, as the sector begins to reopen its doors, we’re incredibly excited to be preparing to welcome our visitors back in person this autumn for three fantastic shows, two unmissable days, one extraordinary event and countless opportunities for business and innovation.”
The event will mark the first time that Commercial Kitchen has taken place in London. Previous editions were held at the Birmingham NEC.
The show, which works closely with lead partner Ceda and partner FCSI, will play host to 100 catering equipment exhibitors including Adande, Hupfer, Lincat, Meiko, Regale Microwaves, Synergy Grill, True Refrigeration, Unox and Valentine.
Diversified Communications UK made the decision to co-locate the three shows as a response to the overwhelming industry desire to get back to business in 2021.
Stands at all three shows have sold rapidly and the organisers said that some exhibitors have even doubled their stand presence to mark what will be the first exhibition back for more than 18 months.
Leading operators said they can’t wait to hit the show floor again.
Duncan McEwan, executive development chef at The Big Table Group, commented: “The show is the most important catalyst [this] year, bringing ideas and people together, making our industry as strong as ever.”
Warren Geraghty, executive chef at Tom Kerridge, said he was looking forward to attending the show. “It will be bigger, better and more important than ever,” he commented.
While the co-location has received great industry support, the three shows remain distinct and each offers its own free seminar programmes and business initiatives, including separate Innovation Challenges.
