Register now for The Great Hospitality Show

The Hospitality Show returns to Birmingham in January 2017 with a brand new name, stunning new features and some old favourites thrown in for good measure.

“The Great Hospitality Show is a unique opportunity for everyone involved to get inspired, learn from one another and take something new back to their place of work,” show ambassador, Cyrus Todiwala, says. “Shows like this give us the opportunity to work with young chefs, showcase innovative thinking and celebrate those who work in this fabulous industry. We’re taking things head on and I can’t wait.”

This year, the show is strengthened by a team of dedicated ambassadors, including highly respected chef and champion of kitchen skills, Cyrus Todiwala OBE; Michelin restaurateur and godfather of modern midlands cooking, Andreas Antona and Mike Coldicott, director of kitchen design pioneers, Tricon. Each will be involved in passionate debates, discussions and events in and around the show floor throughout the three days.

As the UK faces one of the biggest economic shifts in modern memory, the highly successful Mentor Programme returns to the fold to help visitors overcome business challenges of all types. Some of the most respected names in the industry will offer visitors free face-to-face business surgeries. Sessions will be split into specific topics including Menu Development, Marketing, Skills and HR, with expert mentors in each field on-hand to offer help.

The Salon Display category, sponsored by Compass Group, returns with a range of challenging platters, restaurant plates and pastry classes as well as the ever popular sugarcraft which, for the very first time, will invite talented teams to work in collaboration on stunning displays.

When it comes to the Live Theatre, entrants can expect some exciting new competitions including the Vegan Challenge, Cheese Starter and Breakfast Power Bowls in addition to team challenges alongside returning favourites such as the Street Food Challenge.
