Celebrating excellence within the industry, Food & Bev Live – brought to you by IFSA, the organisation behind the biannual Catex Show – is returning to the Citywest, Dublin, on the 4th & 5th February 2020.
Kick starting the 2020 hospitality season, the show will be bursting with new features and industry-specific attractions, that will serve up solutions for Ireland’s foodservice and hospitality sectors. Ireland’s First National Pizza Championships will be launched at the show, in association with the Associazione Pizzerie Italiane (API) and will see chefs from across Ireland battle it out to be crowned National Pizza Champion.
Home to hundreds of exhibitors and attracting thousands of visitors, Food & Bev Live 2020 will once again be hosting the National Barista Championships, the Bartenders Association’s Irish Cocktail Championships and the ‘hotly’ contested Chef Ireland Culinary Competitions.
As well as providing a platform for networking and forging new relationships, Food & Bev Live is a must-attend event for finding the latest, cutting edge products across food and drink, catering equipment and technology. It is an opportunity for everyone to get involved, to get inspired, to learn from one another and to come away with valuable insight and products to help revolutionise their business.
Patrick Clements, Chairman of IFSA, commented: “With thousands of visitors expected to attend, Food & Bev Live is one of the most eagerly anticipated foodservice events of the year and IFSA look forward to welcoming visitors to the show and growing their partnership over the coming years. We are proud that the show has become firmly established on the food and drink industry calendar and we are looking forward to a busy two days.
“We are aware that we can’t be complacent and must continue to work hard to make sure buyers and suppliers feel it is a valuable experience and worth taking time out of their diary to attend. We’re delighted to be expanding the features portfolio at the show which showcase the strength of talent of Ireland’s foodservice industry, which in turn will attract new exhibitors and visitors, making Food & Bev Live a must attend event.”
Peter Borza, API Ireland Managing Director, added: “Food & Bev Live is a unique trade event that caters to those owning, operating and working in foodservice, hospitality and leisure establishments across Ireland and Europe. Renowned for being home to world-class competitions, API Ireland are delighted to be involved and look forward to launching Ireland’s first National Pizza Competition at the show.
