CATEX, Ireland’s largest foodservice and hospitality event, is set to return to Dublin’s RDS next February.
The biennial trade show provides thousands of visitors with products, services and solutions aimed at meeting the demands faced by the hospitality and foodservice sectors, with Ireland’s biggest players and membership organisations coming together under the one roof over three days. Created by IFSA (Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance) and managed by EventHaus, CATEX 2019 will again be supported by Bunzl and Calor Gas and will run from February 26th to 28th.
“Calor have had a long-standing partnership with the Irish foodservice and hospitality sector and are very proud that the majority of Ireland’s chefs choose to cook with Calor Gas,” said Oliver Kenny, Sales Director with Calor Gas, commenting on its support for CATEX 2019. “At the CATEX 2019 event, we hope to continue to educate customers on BioLPG – our new 100 per cent renewable energy solution for businesses that are committed to reducing their carbon footprint.”
Key themes at next year’s event will include the future of food, drink and hospitality, and predicting new industry trends. Lynas Foodservice, Bewleys, Hugh Jordan, Henderson Foodservice and Marco Beverage Systems are among the currently confirmed exhibitors.
