The Fry Fast Food Show 2012
The UK’s largest annual trade exhibition for the Fish Frying and Fast Food industry is moving into the 4,000 sqm Jaguar Hall One for its show on Sunday 16th September.
The exhibition, which is now in its 15th year, will have over 80 stands showcasing the latest food, equipment and services to outlets ranging from fish and chip shops to mobile caterers and sports stadia to ice cream parlors.
Exhibitors will be travelling to the Ricoh Arena from across the UK as well as Denmark and Holland for the free event, which also features an array of special offers on every day food products, equipment and services.
Serena Bracken, from the show’s organiser Pybus Events, said this was the fourth time the Fry Fast Food Show had been held at the Ricoh Arena and this was certain to be the best yet.
“The Ricoh is great for growing events because of its flexibility. We started off quite small in our first year but we are getting bigger and bigger and the Ricoh has the facilities to be able to accommodate our growing needs,” she said.
“We had around 800 visitors in 2011 and this year we already have over 1,000 pre-registered visitors so we are confident of achieving our highest ever visitor numbers.
“We have arranged to take more space in the Jaguar Exhibition Hall because we have already sold 50 stands and it means we can grow even further if necessary.
“There will be a new pizza and takeaway area along with an outside catering section since these are increasing in popularity within the industry at the moment.
“On the success of last year’s seminar session – which was standing room only – we have also extended the seminar theatre, providing more opportunities for visitors to listen to and learn from a host of industry experts.
“We have a number of confirmed speakers including Zohaib Hussain, the current Young Fish Frier of the Year, who will be talking about how to make it as a youngster in today’s industry.
“Since this is the only dedicated show in the UK for the fast food market, we are confident this will be our best yet!”
Paul Dowling, event manager at the Ricoh Arena, said the fact that three exhibitors were travelling over from Denmark and Holland emphasised the show’s success.
He adds: “The exhibition is free to enter and as well as all the stands, there will be a children’s entertainment area and competitions.
“The show appeals to a wide number of people involved in the fast food industry and our central location means we are easy to reach for the vast majority of people exhibiting and visiting the show.”
