The ‘Hotel, Restaurant & Catering Show’ (HRC) has been given the green light to go ahead next year between the 22 – 24 March 2021, after both the government and ExCeL London announced a lifting of restrictions from 1 October this year.
Previously known as Hotelympia, the show returned to its original name HRC – Hotel, Restaurant and Catering and took place at ExCeL London from 3-5 March 2020 earlier this year – one of the last shows to take place prior to lockdown.
The event aims to bring together four shows covering food, drink, catering equipment, interiors and technology.
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 and with so many key contacts working from home recently, HRC will provide the ideal opportunity to re-engage with customers both old and new. “
She added: “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.”
