You may be familiar with Expowest Cornwall already, as for over 30 years it has been the region’s premier hospitality and catering trade show. Every year this show is the place where suppliers large and small showcase their latest products and services to Cornwall’s trade buyers. This year’s Expowest Cornwall takes place at the Royal Cornwall Showground near Wadebridge from Tuesday 3rd to Thursday 5th March. Perfectly timed and showcasing products that cover the whole of the hospitality and catering market; this show really does have Cornwall covered!
You will see a wide range of different exhibitors showcasing everything from foodservice to fresh produce, bakery to business services, drinks to catering equipment, and speciality foods to sundry supplies, plus much more besides. With such a broad and comprehensive range on display the show attracts buyers from hotels, restaurants, pubs, cafes, supermarkets, grocers, delis, farm shops, independent stores, holiday parks & tourist attractions, schools, colleges, universities and hospitals. The show has a strong Cornish flavour, and in the space of just a few hours you will meet the region’s major suppliers.
Attending gives you the vital advantage of tasting the latest innovations in food and drink, as well as testing and evaluating the products and services on show. There’s no better way to get a real sense of which way the market is moving and what’s likely to sell best in 2015. There’s also no substitute for meeting people face to face – you’ll almost certainly get better terms and superior service if you’ve taken the time to build a relationship with them.
This year’s exhibition will see the return of the Demo Area which is sponsored this year by Cornwall College Business. Once again there will be a great mix of demonstrations over the three days of the show from both leading professional chefs and Cornwall College Business students, as well as business focused talks and presentations. The Speciality Food area will also be back, sponsored by Taste of the West and will be focused on speciality quality, artisan, local foods as well as flavours from further afield.
The show provides a place where the whole Cornish business community gets together to enjoy the company of colleagues, suppliers and customers. What’s more, because so many come together all under one roof, this provides a superb opportunity for those outside the county to tap into the Cornish market. Expowest Cornwall is a crucial event on the business and social calendar – if you want to get straight to the heart of the Cornish business community then this is one show you cannot afford to miss.
