LACA’s Main Event annual conference and exhibition has a bigger format for 2018.

There will be a full day’s programme of interactive workshops and conference sessions on Wednesday July 11.

In addition, the Education Catering Exhibition will now be opening earlier at 9.30am.

At the exhibition, over 160 exhibitors will showcase food and beverages, equipment, systems and services.

The exhibition attracts decision makers and buyers from across the education catering sector.

There will be free-to-attend workshops on both Wednesday and Thursday, featuring Great British Bake Off winner Candice Brown and celebrity chef Cyrus Todiwala.

Show features include LACA Live Skills Arena  ­– a series of practical demonstrations showcasing skills to enhance your school servery and presentation of lunchtime offer – and Finishing Touches salon culinaire, held in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs, which forms part of the Main Event.

Thursday’s (July 12) programme will continue with a second stream of workshops, followed by a full programme in the conference room.

Friday morning will see a breakfast briefing session, open to both delegates and exhibitor colleagues, followed by the annual meeting for LACA Members.
