The very successful Expowest Cornwall took place from 3rd – 5th March, at the Royal Cornwall Showground, in Wadebridge, and over those three days more than 2700 buyers came to taste, test, sample and order the best that Cornwall has to offer. Over 150 exhibitors took this early season opportunity to display and demonstrate their wares to both regulars and new customers. One fifth of them have already rebooked, meaning that the 2016 show is 30% full already!
Changes for this year included improved catering facilities, live music, and new stands. Exhibitors showcased products covering the whole of the hospitality and catering market; from tableware and furniture, catering equipment and services, to coffee and speciality food products. With a friendly and relaxed feel, lots of business was done in a really positive and sociable atmosphere.
“It’s great to meet up with old and new suppliers and put faces to names rather than just talking on the phone or emailing and to actually see and taste products on offer. This was only our 2nd time at the show but again we found it incredibly useful, really informative and a great inspiration for the start of the season, met some really friendly helpful suppliers.” Amelia Mills, Spero’s Beach Cafe & Restaurant.
“Came back from @expowest_uk with some different ideas & some delicious new treats!! Looking forward to them arriving!
