Since 2012, the Food & Catering Zone at Glee, an i2i Event, has become a ‘must-see’ feature for those thinking of setting up a catering facility from scratch, or in need of ideas to reinvigorate an existing one. This year, to drive further content and catering inspiration, Catering Design Group (CDG) has come on board as exclusive partners of the Glee Food & Catering Zone.
As an award-winning restaurant and commercial kitchen design company, offering a full design service for both front and back of house, CDG is well placed to deliver unrivalled support and educational content for this thriving section of Glee. In its short existence so far, the Food & Catering Zone has become renowned as a central hub providing advice, information and inspiration for garden retailers to take their concept to the next level, as well as offering visitors an unrivalled selection of food and catering-related products to suit all budgets.
Talking about the exclusive partnership, Philip Howard, Managing Director, Catering Design Group said: “We’re delighted to be returning to Glee as the exclusive sponsors of the Food & Catering Zone in 2015. We’ll be bringing along our great team of experts across design, kitchen planning and project management to give visitors advice and answer any questions on all aspects of restaurant design and build. We’ll also be sharing an abundance of hints, tips, trends and insights to enable visitors to create a destination catering space, so do pop by and say hello!”
This year the Food & Catering Zone is set to be better than ever, and will be a rich resource for any retailer wanting to expand their catering facilities. As always this dedicated area will address key issues via an unrivalled workshop programme, with details of the full schedule set to be announced shortly.
Additionally there will be a wealth of big name brands and niche suppliers covering areas of expertise including catering services, confectionary, kitchen equipment, kitchenware and café/restaurant design consultancy. Key names to look out for include Bon Bons Wholesale, Findlaters Fine Foods, BBQ Gourmet, Chaucer Foods, The Cutlery Polisher, and Tudor Coffee.
i2i’s Matthew Mein, Glee event director said: “This year’s Food & Catering Zone is set to be the best yet! The area will not only be bigger and packed full of more exhibitors than ever before, but with the guidance of Catering Design Group as our exclusive partners we will be able to develop a programme that is as targeted and hard working as possible.”
