Hotel Retail Catering Show

65-year-old Hotel, Catering & Retail Show postponed

We regret to inform you that we are postponing the 2018 Hotel, Catering & Retail Show. Due to financial constraints, stand sales are not at the levels required to present a show to the market. The event was due to take place on Tuesday 13th & Wednesday 14th March 2018, but is now under review. It may take place again in the future, if more realistic costs for our clients can be achieved. The show has taken place for 65 years, so it was not an easy decision for us to make.

“We have been organising successful trade shows for 25 years, and our customers’ needs are at the heart of all the decisions we make. We have not taken this decision lightly, but rising costs for many essential associated client services make this show very expensive compared to our other trade shows in similar markets, which has led to falling stand sales. It is important to us that the products we offer our customers give them value for money and a return on their investment. At this time, we do not feel able to do this in Bournemouth, and therefore we would prefer to postpone now and allow our clients to plan their trade show year with confidence, rather than leaving such a critical decision until the last minute”.
