Paul Lumley Brand & Communications Manager, Nestlé Professional
The Casual Dining industry is changing. Consumer trends are fast paced and businesses need to be able to flex and adapt to keep up. The Casual Dining Show provided the perfect platform to launch the new ‘BuzzBites Good Food, Good Life’ report from Nestlé Professional.
Robert Marciano Director, DiSotto Foods Ltd
Casual Dining is my favourite show of the year. Always delivers a good atmosphere and a high level of serious visitors looking for innovative ideas and quality products – the main reason why Disotto Foods has exhibited since the shows inception.
Terry Larkin Group General Manager, JJ Food Service
We’ve had a huge amount of interest. Everyone from football clubs and caterers to chains and universities dropped by our stand. We have already signed up to exhibit in 2018 – well done to the team for another fantastic show.
Kim Antoniou Founder, Kafoodle
Casual Dining gets better each year! The contacts and leads that we collected were absolutely outstanding and we have meetings booked as a result beyond all of our expectations. The Casual Dining show is now firmly in our diary as a ‘must do’ for next year.
Nigel Phillips Country Sales Manager UK & Ireland, Lamb Weston
Casual Dining proved to be a great platform to introduce our ranges to new and existing customers. For us, the show is a key date within our schedule and an extremely influential event for maintaining brand awareness, meeting potential customers and building relationships.
Neil Mantle Ascentia FSE
We have already taken our first order for the F1 as a result of the first morning of the show. See you next year!
Simon Lohse Managing Director, Rational UK Limited
Casual Dining 2017 was a great success for Rational UK, in terms of the visitor profiles.
Mike O’Keeffe Managing Director, Gamble Foodservice Solutions
Casual Dining has to be the best show in the industry for us to exhibit at! Quality of location, facilities, support from the organiser and the calibre of visitor make it second to none. We generally find that right up to the final minute of the show, we still get outstanding visitors to our stand that make the exhibition worthwhile for us. The fact that we had our dealer customers asking if they could exhibit with us next year says it all!
David Bryant Major International
Really pleased with the leads we picked up at Casual Dining, it’s good to have a dedicated food show that is still in central London. The leads we picked up are good strong leads, we have a number already with confirmed orders. So well done to the team at Casual Dining I had no hesitation in signing up for next year’s event!
Simon George Budweiser Budvar UK
Another great show this year – a great opportunity for us to showcase Budvar and talk with our customers about our new Craft Cider additions. Lots of exciting, new leads to follow up on.
Sam Chote Head of Sales, Karma Cola
For a business still getting started, choosing the right show can be quite stressful. Casual Dining 2017 was clearly the best trade show we have done and we had so many great conversations.
Nicola Mills Marketing & Development Director, Bar Foods
This is a fantastic show for us to be meet existing and new customers and showcase our business. Has always proved beneficial for ourselves.
Kim Addison Marketing Director, VITO UK Ltd
Another fantastic show courtesy of Diversified who have nailed the format for our industry’s trade shows. This show is by far the best for us and the quality of footfall is exceptional. The venue is great, 2 days is perfect and Islington has a great vibe for eating/socialising. We don’t have enough quality shows like this one and the few others we have are falling behind.
