One of the highlights in the Lockhart Catering and hospitality industry calendar is The Restaurant Show which takes place at London Olympia from Monday 1st to Wednesday 3rd October 2018. The Restaurant Show will once again include a dedicated area to showcase the very best in the world of catering equipment with ‘Catering Equipment Expo’. This is our third year of hosting this trade show and it includes over 60 suppliers who will be on-hand to tell you more about their latest products, promotions and offers. As the show will be bigger than ever, we’ve got a new location for 2018 and you will find us on level 1 of the central hall.

30 years of The Restaurant Show

This year will be the 30th anniversary for The Restaurant Show and it’s an event we are always proud to support. More than ever, this show is set to be a real celebration of the hospitality industry, with some of the biggest names, exciting competitions and insightful live sessions on The Stage. Visitors will also be able to see the dedicated bar and pub area, in partnership with Morning Advertiser, which is aimed at those owning, managing and working in bars and pubs across the UK.

With Catering Equipment Expo, we aim to showcase the latest trends in food and drink from around the world and will be on hand to offer expert advice on table top, back-of-house and heavy equipment. You will also be able to watch technical demonstrations and cost-saving seminars from some of hospitality’s leading brands. Each year, visitors to the show benefit from being the first to hear about product launches whilst enjoying incredible show-only deals and special offers.

Supporting industry talent

Not only do we have our own area of the exhibition, we are also supporting the competition theatre and The Stage with Chefmaster Induction Hobs as well as a selection of Prepara Kitchen Equipment. Taking place in the competition theatre is the National Chef of the Year live final where the competitors will battle it out to receive the biggest title in the culinary profession here in the UK. It’s nail-biting to watch but as headline sponsor of the competition it’s an event we love to be part of year on year. Mark out Tuesday 2nd October in your diary and immerse yourself in the competition viewing area to see culinary skills of the highest level.

The show will also see The Copa Jerez final on the opening morning. This international competition sees teams of chefs and sommeliers from restaurants in seven countries gather to create the perfect marriage between modern cooking and centuries-old wine. Other competitions at the theatre include the Kikkoman Masters and Compass Chef of the Year which aren’t to be missed.
