Patrick Clement, Chairman of IFSA comments: “With thousands of visitors expected to attend, Food & Bev Live is one of the most eagerly anticipated foodservice events of the year and IFSA look forward to welcoming visitors to the show and growing their partnership over the coming years. We are proud that the show has become firmly established on the food and drink industry calendar and we are looking forward to a busy two days.
“We are aware that we can’t be complacent and must continue to work hard to make sure buyers and suppliers feel it is a valuable experience and worth taking time out of their diary to attend. We’re thrilled to be adding to the show with the addition of new national competitions, which in turn will attract new exhibitors and visitors, making Food & Bev Live a must attend event.”
