The next North West Business and Hospitality Show, for which North West Food & Drink Means Business is an event supporter and sponsor is expanding for 2019.
The show, on February 27 and 28 next year will once again be held in the Exhibition Hall at the Junction 36 Auction Centre near Kendal.
Visitors from across the industry are invited to the free event which will offer discussions, talks and workshops designed to support and advise hospitality and cross-sector businesses.
It follows on from the successful show held last February (see our gallery from the food area here – http://northwest.fdmb.co.uk/food-drink-north-west-hospitality-show-day-1-pictures )
Event Organiser Nick Hood said they had been building relationships with both hospitality businesses and event partners over the past 12 months.
He said: “The North West has a reputation as an area of hospitality excellence, which we are committed to developing and promoting.
“However we appreciated that there was a portion of the 2018 exhibitors who were not 100 per cent hospitality focused businesses.
“Our region is blessed with so many fantastic and innovative companies that it was clear there was a wider range of opportunities available which would help maximise the full potential of the show.
“The newly expanded event is about much more than just the two days in February, it’s about creating long lasting connections which have real value.”
The show is working with returning commercial partner The Family Business Network Ltd, with other event supporters including the Lake District Foundation, North West Food and Drink Means Business, Inglewood Hospitality Associates and Family Business United.
Sponsors RFM Accountants and Vadhoo are joined by new Lake District food guide website, Fooser as well as Bidfood.
