The Hotel, Restaurant & Catering Show (HRC) will go ahead on 22-24 March 2021, following the lifting of restrictions from 1 October 2020.
Ronda Annesley, event manager for HRC, said: "There is nothing quite like the buzz of an exhibition hall and there is no doubt that being able to touch, smell, feel and see products in real life will always be more effective than any online experience.
"For exhibitors, the opportunity to meet serious buyers face to face can completely change the sales dynamic. With so many key contacts working from home recently, HRC will provide the ideal opportunity to re-engage with customers both old and new.
"The health and safety of both exhibitors and visitors will be our utmost priority and we'll be working hard in the coming months to provide visitors and exhibitors with a completely safe and hygienic environment."
Paul Fieldhouse, business development director at exhibitor Ramco, commented: "After a turbulent 2020, Ramco can now focus on kick-starting 2021, beginning with HRC in March at Excel."
