UK Foodservice Buying Group reveals biggest ever conference for 2019

Caterforce announces Sir Ranulph Fiennes as the keynote speaker for this year’s event, ‘The Market Uncovered’

Leading foodservice group, Caterforce, has announced details of its 2019 conference, named ‘The Market Uncovered’ and it is making the event the largest of its kind.

On 14th November, Caterforce will be transforming the world-famous Celtic Manor Resort into the ultimate market experience. As well as fabulous street food markets, there’ll be a taste of key food trends, a feast of insights into the foodservice market and a look at how Caterforce and its member businesses are shaping up for 2020 and beyond.

Following the success of previous years, more than 250 suppliers and delegates are expected to attend to gain insight from Caterforces’ seven wholesale members as well as a number of industry speakers.

World renowned British explorer Sir Ranulph Fiennes has already been confirmed as the keynote speaker. Reflecting one of Caterforce’s key values of working as a team, Sir Ranulph will discuss how teamwork, from crew and expedition supporters, has contributed to his success in the toughest expeditions in the world.

Liam Halligan, British Economist, Journalist and Broadcaster, will be returning to the stage to discuss life after Brexit and other speakers, yet to be announced, will cover the future of foodservice. This will include anticipated food trends, the latest industry data that the foodservice sector needs to consider and specialist views of what to expect up to 2025.

Finally, after the conference closes, there is time allocated to a ‘meet the member’ session where delegates get to spend time with the members.

Nick Redford, Managing Director of Caterforce, said: “The Market Uncovered will be the largest Caterforce conference to date. We’ve invested a lot this year to offer our guests an event that isn’t to be missed. The conference has proved a huge success over previous years, and it’s become a key calendar date for the industry to come together.”

The conference takes place this year on Thursday 14th November at Celtic Manor Resort, Newport, South Wales. Tickets are still available to book online. For more information including the full itinerary on the day and to purchase tickets visit
