The Hotel, Restaurant & Catering (HRC) show and the International Food & Drink Exhibition (IFE) will unite on 22-24 March 2021 at London ExCeL to create the UK’s ‘largest catering and hospitality celebration’ of the year.

The event will provide industry professionals an opportunity to discover the latest innovations, consumer trends and network with more than 45,000 hospitality professionals across three days.

Soraya Gadelrab, portfolio director of food, drink & hospitality at Fresh Montgomery, said: “We are extremely excited about the opportunities we feel uniting the events will bring, and with more time pressure placed on everyone in the trade, we hope to provide an unmissable one stop shop for industry professionals on a global platform.”

The HRC‘s next edition at ExCeL London is to set take place on 3-5 March 2020. There will be 650 suppliers showcasing products and the HRC show will host the Salon Culinaire, one of the UK’s ‘most prestigious’ chef competitions. 

The IFE is the ‘home of food & drink innovation’, welcoming 1,250 manufacturers to its exhibition every year. There are 25,000 visitors from hospitality, retail and foodservice who attend to gain insight into the latest trends and to network with their peers.  

Pro2Pac will complete the events’ 360 supply chain offering, showcasing manufacturing 'innovation' and packaging solutions.
