HRC Show 2021 receives green light

Written by: Edward Waddell
The Hotel, Restaurant & Catering Show has been given the green light by the Government and ExCeL London to take place on 22-24 March 2021.

Ronda Annesley, event manager for HRC, said: “There is nothing quite like the buzz of an exhibition hall and there is no doubt that being able to touch, smell, feel and see products in real life, will always be more effective than any online experience.

“For exhibitors, the opportunity to meet serious buyers face to face can completely change the sales dynamic and with so many key contacts working from home recently, HRC will provide the ideal opportunity to re-engage with customers both old and new. 

“The health and safety of both exhibitors and visitors will be our utmost priority and we’ll be working hard in the coming months to provide visitors and exhibitors with a completely safe and hygienic environment.”

Exhibitors are ‘delighted’ that the HRC Show has been confirmed for next year after the government lifted restrictions from 1 October 2020. During lockdown companies were using Zoom and Teams for their meetings but the HRC Show will allow them to meet and network face to face.

  • Paul Fieldhouse, business development director at Ramco, enthused: “After a turbulent 2020, Ramco can now focus on kick-starting 2021, beginning with ‘Hotel, Restaurant & Catering (HRC) in March at ExCeL.”
  •  Richard Ebbs, commercial & marketing director at Synergy Grill Technology explained: “As with so many products, Synergy Grill really comes into its own when chefs witness it in action. HRC will once again provide visitors with a way to excite their senses, as they discover the latest products that have launched during lockdown.”
  • Paul Da Costa Greaves, culinary countries manager at Koppert Cress highlighted how the event is far more than just an exhibition, “HRC is not just a trade show, it is a platform for the whole HoReCa industry to network, share creativity and be inspired by the passion of the individuals, operators and suppliers within it. The sector has shown amazing resilience in the last few months and HRC will be the place to celebrate that – We are looking forward to it immensely.”
