VIP programme targets key buyers while app puts exhibitors in the know
Hotelympia, February 29 – March 3 2016, ExCel London
CESA and Fresh Montgomery, the organisers of Hotelympia, have got together to create a brand new concept – called the VIP Equipment Buyer Programme – that’s designed to get key buyers from foodservice operator groups onto exhibitor stands at the 2016 exhibition. From the buyer’s perspective, it will be like having an exclusive virtual concierge who will help them quickly find the products they want to view. For CESA members, it will help generate visits from targeted VIP buyers at the show.
“This is a truly innovative and unique initiative from a catering exhibition organiser,” says Simon Frost, chair of CESA. “It’s going to bring genuine benefits to both visitors and exhibitors.”

Ideal for chains, the New Hamilton Beach Eclipse Blender from FEM is efficient, programmable, and, unlike most blenders, quiet.
Coffee houses and cafes are more popular than they’ve ever been, not just for their espressos, but their smoothies and iced drinks too. A recent study by Zagat Staff indicates that noise irritates diners more than anything else, and conventional blenders, with their loud motors and blades working overtime to crush fruit and ice quickly, exacerbate this.
