Discover the Heartbeat of Foodservice and Hospitality
The revitalised Hotelympia returned with a bang in 2014, with exhibitors and visitors alike praising the raft of format changes implemented by show organisers, Fresh Montgomery.
With a stunning new look, a host of new attractions, new four-day format and a new spring date in the diary, delegates were quick to heap plaudits on the show. Singled out for particular praise was the new, giant main hall featuring a purpose built entrance tunnel with sensory elements provided by some of the UK’s leading interior design companies. Once inside, visitors were treated to a warm hospitality welcome from Hotelympia’s team of specially trained ambassadors – the Show Makers – recruited from leading catering college, Westminster Kingsway, and on hand throughout the four days to offer advice on show attractions.
