Specialist kitchen equipment, services and design show Commercial Kitchen bid farewell to Birmingham in style this week (4-5 June).
With final figures still to be announced, the 2019 show is claimed to have seen “the best quality of buyers yet” and 50% of exhibitors already rebooking for the 2020 edition.
Now, after four successful years – where the show has established itself as the 2 days a year where the industry meets, launches innovations and does business – Commercial Kitchen will move to London (said to be home to more kitchens per sqm than anywhere else in the UK) in June 2020 for its ‘biggest edition yet’.
Event manager Katie Tyler from organiser Diversified Communications UK said: “Following a very busy, valuable and productive two days at Commercial Kitchen 2019, we’re delighted to announce the show’s move to ExCeL London. The time is right for a change and the news has already generated a lot of interest and enthusiasm from our exhibitors, supporters, and visitors alike.
“Best of all, the tenancy enjoys similar dates, with our 2020 show scheduled to open on 3-4 June. Plus, when the Elizabeth line opens, ExCeL London will become even more accessible from both Heathrow and central London in minutes.
“We’ll be drawing on all our strengths – harnessing Diversified’s unique experience, connections and knowledge within the hospitality, foodservice and catering industry to ensure Commercial Kitchen’s fifth anniversary show in London is as memorable as it is unmissable for buyers across the whole country.”
