The Restaurant Show returns to Olympia London in October 2023, with new Bar & Drinks Zone!
For over 30 years, The Restaurant Show has been the flagship trade show for restaurateurs and chefs, casual dining operators as well as pub, bar and street food operators. Coupled with Catering Expo Equipment, the three-day exhibition champions the outstanding products, people, insight and innovation of the food and drink industry.
For the first time, the show will introduce two new zones: Chefs’ Ingredients and Bar & Drinks. The Bar & Drinks area will provide a holistic view of beverages in hospitality. From aperitifs and cocktails to beers, wines and spirits to coffees, teas and infusions – the drinks menu is a key element of any restaurant, bar, or pub and the driver of higher margins and profitability. This zone will also be bolstered by a dedicated Bar & Drinks Live theatre in partnership with The Morning Advertiser, incorporating panels, presentations, interviews and tastings with some of the leading industry experts, including Charlie Gilkes of Inception Group, Joanne Bradford of Marston’s, Helen Charlesworth of Stonegate and Emma McClarkin of BBPA.
Alongside this, William Reed is investing in a multi-channel content strategy that will flow through The Restaurant Show. With an additional content theatre, Restaurant Live, visitors will have access to a data, insight, panels, presentations, demonstrations and workshops, delivered by industry leaders, including Will Beckett of Hawksmoor, Michael O’Hare of The Man Behind The Curtain, and Mark Selby of Wahaca, covering the latest trends impacting the UK hospitality market. Visit the show’s website to see just some of the speakers already confirmed.
Commenting on the new features, Andrew Reed, Managing Director – Wine and Exhibitions at William Reed said, “The Restaurant Show has 30 years of heritage as the go-to show for chefs, operators and businesses across the hospitality industry. We are delighted to bring the brand back into the spotlight. Restaurants are the lifeblood of the hospitality industry, whether that be in pubs, fast food, fine dining, coffee shops or casual dining outlets.”
