It’s safe to say that the pandemic has been a very challenging time for the entire country. Hardest hit has been the hospitality sector, which is only now on the path back to full operation.
However it’s not all doom and gloom. Thanks to the successful vaccine rollout and improvements in treatments, a cautious optimism has started to spread throughout the country. The days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer, and people are starting to plan ahead again. As restrictions on travelling abroad seem to be likely for some time to come., many holiday companies are reporting increased levels of bookings for staycations in the South West. Retailers and hospitality businesses are gearing up for what could be a very busy Summer.
The Source trade show, at Westpoint, Exeter on the Tuesday 8th & Wednesday 9th June, is a great opportunity for you to restock, discover new products, and make the most of an influx of tourists to the South West. It will be one of the first trade shows for food and drink in 2021, and no other event serves up such a rewarding and valuable mix of comparative tastings, innovative ideas, networking opportunities and inspirational experiences. The show will have Covid-19 measures in place to ensure a safe environment for both buyers and exhibitors and, new this year, there will be outdoor space for exhibitors and catering too. It’s the perfect opportunity to get back up to speed and kickstart your business for the year.
Attracting buyers from retail, hospitality and catering, the Source trade show brings out the best the South West region has to offer, from artisan food & drink to essential goods and services. If you have a serious interest in speciality foods, quality drinks, profitable catering and inspired hospitality, you cannot afford to miss it!
