Commercial Kitchen announces partnership with CEDA

Commercial Kitchen, the definitive new event for the UK’s catering equipment industry, is delighted to welcome CEDA (the Catering Equipment Distributors Association) as a major association partner.

The highly-anticipated new launch from Diversified Communications UK, the organisers behind the multi-award winning lunch! and Casual Dining events, will take place this summer at the NEC Birmingham on 7-8 June.

CEDA, the UK’s leading membership association for companies involved in the distribution and servicing of commercial catering equipment, is a pivotal partner for the show, which is set to bring the whole industry together for the first time in the UK.

Adam Mason, director general of CEDA, welcomes the launch, saying: “CEDA is delighted to support and be a partner on Commercial Kitchen, the only trade show dedicated to the industry that we are proud to serve.  We’re excited that a number of CEDA partners have already secured stands and that they will benefit from enhanced free marketing.  We encourage all our members to visit this major new show, which will bring together all the industry’s leading suppliers and showcase the best, most innovative commercial kitchen equipment and solutions.”

Commercial Kitchen’s group event director Chris Brazier says: “Commercial Kitchen is delighted to be working with CEDA.  We already have many of their partners confirmed to exhibit at the launch and their members are a key part of the buying audience for us.  It’s clear that we all agree that a dedicated trade event for the commercial kitchen sector is long overdue and will benefit distributors, manufacturers and end users alike.  CEDA’s strong passion for excellence in design, supply, project-management and installation matches our own and we are delighted to finally be bringing this industry the trade show it truly deserves!”

CEDA partners confirmed to exhibit include Manitowoc; Rational; Electrolux; Gram; MCS Tech Products; Adande Refrigeration; Valentine Equipment; Die-Pat Divisions; Commercial Catering Spares; and ACME Facilities.  They are among 100 hand-picked companies set to showcase the complete range of innovative equipment, devices and utensils required to run, refurbish or build a commercial kitchen.

“Gram are delighted to be supporting a clearly focused capital equipment event that gives us an ideal platform to meet prospective purchasers across the independent and group marketplace,” says Glenn Roberts, managing director of Gram (UK).

“Commercial Kitchen is a fantastic concept and provides the market with a needed pure equipment focused show,” says Julie Fell, marketing manager at Electrolux Professional.

“We are very excited to be participating at the new Commercial Kitchen exhibition.  A dedicated event of this type, for the catering industry, where heavy equipment suppliers can showcase their latest products is something we firmly believe the market needs,” says Melissa Pereira, UK key account director at Rational.
