The dates for the CEDA 2015 conference at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Heythrop Park, Oxfordshire have been set for the 23 and 24 April 2015.
The conference aims to reach out to more associations working with end-users that can benefit from a closer relationship with CEDA and its members. Representatives from the HCA, APSE, NACC, NSCC, BSA and NCA have already confirmed attendance and more will be announced in due course.
Adam Mason, CEDA director general, explained: "In 2015 CEDA will use its marketing activities to reach out to end-users across multiple sectors in foodservice and that's why we will host more associations that represent their interests at the CEDA 2015 Conference.
"We are also using the conference to launch a raft of new services that will add real value to catering equipment distributors, related service companies and equipment manufacturers. Our conference marketing will be used to ensure that both members and non-members are aware of the significant benefits of attending."
The first day of the conference will include the CEDA AGM, a drinks reception and a networking dinner. The Friday features the Business Day with keynote speakers, industry experts and industry-specific interactive seminars.
CEDA will be looking for entries to the 2015 Grand Prix Awards from the 1 December 2014.
