Montgomery Group has welcomed the prime minister's recovery roadmap and is preparing to return to live events in the second half of 2021.
The company's food, drink and hospitality division organises trade events including Hotel, Restaurant & Catering, International Food & Drink Event, IFE Manufacturing Solutions, Independent Hotel Show and Speciality & Fine Food Fair.
This year the Speciality & Fine Food Fair will take place on 6-7 September, followed by the Independent Hotel Show London on 4-5 October, both at Olympia London.
Lori Hoinkes (pictured), managing director of Montgomery Events, commented: "Food, drink and hospitality professionals know better than anyone that online can't compare to the power of face-to-face interaction; we're so excited to be busy planning these two events for the second half of the year and to play our part in helping our sectors recover.
"Confidence and enthusiasm have been building in the industry and Monday's announcement has provided another shot of optimism. We're so happy to have the support and continued trust of brands who understand the value of these events for kickstarting business and bringing together the food, drink and hospitality community in a way that's safe, secure and compliant with any remaining restrictions.
Three further events will take place concurrently at Excel London from 28 February to 2 March 2022: the Hotel, Restaurant & Catering show, the International Food & Drink Event and IFE Manufacturing Solutions.
