Mike Anderson, Project Manager at Hale Events said: “We have been planning this event for a year already! We organise a popular and successful food and drink event in Exeter (www.sourcefoodanddrink.co.uk) and the exhibiting companies have been asking us for another show, that addresses a different geographical area for them. We therefore decided to conduct some research.
We conducted in depth research about the Gloucestershire area, and the timing, to both producers and buyers (retail and food service). Of 78 surveys carried out with producers, 75 are interested in this target region and show timing. Of 45 conducted with buyers who responded to an email survey, all would be interested in attending”.
This new trade event presents a fantastic opportunity for producers wishing to meet local buyers, and a sensory experience for all the passionate food and drink buyers wanting to stand out from their competition.
