CATEX 2019 to run from 26-29 February

Ireland’s largest foodservice trade event – CATEX – returns to the RDS, Dublin, next February, providing thousands of visitors with products, services and solutions that meet today’s demands for operators in the foodservice and hospitality sectors.

Ireland’s biggest players and membership organisations in foodservice and hospitality come under one roof for three days from 26th – 28th February 2019 at the RDS, Simmonscourt. Created by the Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance and managed by EventHaus, CATEX 2019 is again supported by Bunzl and Calor Gas.

“As Ireland’s largest foodservice and hospitality event, we aim to raise the bar in terms of features, solutions and competitions at every CATEX,” commented IFSA Chairman and General Manager of Total Produce Foodservice John Cunningham on the importance of supporting the show,

 “Many of the industry’s biggest names have already secured their space and their ongoing commitment underpins the return that CATEX delivers for exhibitors in terms of sales and new contacts.”

Taking place every two years, the 2019 event provides visitors with a programme that identifies key trends that will drive the future of the industry.

It’s the essential platform for exhibitors to promote their products and services directly to industry buyers and for visitors who come to CATEX to source new products, generate new business and learn about innovative trends set to shape the Irish food and drink industry over the coming years, states event organisers Eventhaus.

In 2017, an exit survey found that 98% of exhibitors considered the event either ‘very worthwhile’ or ‘worthwhile’ attending.  This is reflected in stand sales which are already ahead of target, reports Eventhaus.

Confirmed exhibitors so far include Lynas Foodservice, Bewleys, Hugh Jordan, Henderson Foodservice and Marco Beverage Systems. By booking early, exhibitors can secure prime positioning and be included in the promotional campaign in the run-up to the show.
