Following lobbying of the Department for International Trade (DIT) by the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) earlier this month, the association has received 10 grants of £1,500 each for UK companies exhibiting at Host Milan later this year.
Host is taking place at the Fiera Milano 20-24 October 2017. Catering equipment companies wishing to exhibit and receive funding should contact the CESA office for the application form and details. The funding is through the Tradeshow Access Programme (TAP).
CESA will be exhibiting at Host in its own right and will be on hand to help British equipment exhibitors maximise the business opportunity.
Steve Goodliff, CESA’s export group chair, said: “Host Milan is Europe’s leading Ho.Re.Ca show for catering equipment. It attracts tens of thousands of VIP visitors. It’s a big opportunity for British companies to talk to key players from Europe and the rest of the world – and, indeed, from the UK.
“One of our key remits is to provide added value to UK companies looking to develop overseas business. The association’s involvement in international shows, and leading UK exhibitions, has a proven track record of developing sales for members.”
CESA represents more than 190 companies which supply, service and maintain commercial catering equipment.
