Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA, presented awards to the latest group of CFSP (Certified Food Service Professional) alumni during The Great Hospitality Show 2017.
“There are now well over 400 CFSP-accredited foodservice executives in the UK,” he said. “The programme is gathering momentum and is raising the professionalism of the industry – not only in this country, but also abroad. CFSP-accreditation gives credibility as well as knowledge, to both the individual and their organisation.”
CESA’s Group Buyer Programme will connect VIP visitors and exhibitors
‘Virtual concierge’ helps group buyers make the most of their time at the Show
CESA’s Group Buyer Programme is back, this time helping key foodservice operators get more out of their visit to the Great Hospitality Show. It also helps CESA members who are exhibiting at the Show, by pointing buyers in the direction of products they want to see. The programme was first launched at Hotelympia 2016, where it was responsible for a 13% increase in attendance from group buyers.
The Group Buyer Programme gives VIP visitors an exclusive virtual concierge who will help them quickly find the products they want to view.
Frima cooks live at The Great Hospitality Show 2017
NEC Birmingham, January 23-25 Stand 320
Expert chefs will be test driving the latest hi-tech multifunctional cooking technology at Hospitality 2017. Frima’s VarioCooking Center can boil, fry, deep fry and confit, replacing griddles, kettles, bratt pans, large pots and fryers. Alongside all its cooking processes it can also slow cook overnight and fast cook under pressure. It takes the concept of multifunctionality to a new level, says the company – as visitors to the Show will be able to see for themselves.
