New Look HRC Set to Thrill at Excel Next Week

We’re excited to be a media partner at HRC on the 20-22 March and we caught up with Montgomery Events Manager Ronda Annesley to find out what’s in store for next week’s event at Excel.

“This is the first real HRC we’ve been able to do since lockdown,” Annesley told Chandos Elletson. “After last year’s event we took stock and decided that we needed to focus on customer insight. We learned that hospitality never returned to the way it was following the pandemic and there was still a good deal of uncertainty from operators. We took that on board and this year we’re going to see much more interactivity and networking opportunities where visitors can mingle and mix much more. To do that we’ve built a robust content programme that we’re really excited about.

“We’ve gone big in the chefs side, too. We’ve partnered with Chef Publishing to create Chef HQ with a stellar line-up on the demo stage with chefs such as Niall Keating, Ben Murphy, Steve Munkley, Paul Ainsworth, Nikita Pathakji, Tom Brown and Glynn Purnell all taking part.

In the Networking Hub it’s all about learning from likeminded peers with great sessions on training, quality of experience, mentoring and staffing. You can also Ask The Experts live with the FEA (Foodservice Equipment Association).

“You can check out the latest tech in The Launchpad and get the low down on table trends in Tabletop Village and if that’s not enough there’s The Lobby designed by Design Command where you can take a breather and catch up with friends new and old. It’s right in the centre of the show.

“Last but never least is the incredible Salon Culinaire which this year has 825 competitors! There’s a skills theatre, the salon display and a “know before you go” session which is chef curated.”

You can find us on stand H3501 – We look forward to seeing you there!
