It’s Show Time

Welcome to The Grocery Trader’s Preview of the Food & Drink Expo 2010 and its sister exhibitions.

A showcase for the very latest developments in food and drink products, Food & Drink Expo runs simultaneously with seven other major shows, all under the same roof at the NEC, which are also touched on in our Preview – Foodex, the manufacturing and processing event, the Baking Industry Exhibition, the Convenience Retailing Show, the International Forecourt & Fuel Equipment Show, Café+, the Off Licence Show and the Food & Drink Logistics Show.

We’re very proud to be a media partner to Food & Drink Expo. If you come to Birmingham, you’ll find The Grocery Trader team in the Food & Drink Expo area, on Stand N090 in Hall 5. We look forward to meeting you.

With such a large range of key exhibitions taking place at the same time and in the same place, visitors from the grocery retail sector who make the trip to the NEC will enjoy a unique overview of the entire food and drink supply chain. Get your comfortable shoes ready – you’ve got some serious walking to do!

Food & Drink Expo is the UK’s number one exhibition for the food and drink retail sector. Companies from all over the UK and more than 25 other countries will be offering thousands of products and services across a range of food and beverage categories at the event.

Products will be on display from almost every category imaginable, including bakery, dairy, meat and fish, soft drinks, and beer, wines and spirits.

Visitors will also be able to browse thousands of speciality food and drink products in regional pavilions in the Regional & Speciality Area, with exhibitors including Heart of England Fine Foods, Taste of the West, Tastes of Anglia, Deliciouslyorkshire, Food Northwest and North East England Food & Drink Group. The Organic Village, meanwhile, will play host to the very latest innovations in the organic food and beverage sector.

In the words of Jack Halliday, the event’s group sales manager, Food & Drink Expo enables retail buyers to meet and negotiate with hundreds of suppliers all in one place: “Visitors can do a year’s product sourcing all in one day at the UK’s most vibrant food and drink trade show, while at the same time picking up new ideas from experts to help them move their own businesses forward.”

We couldn’t put it better. And don’t forget the other shows too! Have a great visit to the NEC, and see you on our stand.
