Despite the treacherous conditions caused by the ‘Beast from the East’, the latest Landmark Wholesale Caterer Connections event was a runaway success with more than 420 one-to-one meetings taking place between branded foodservice suppliers, own-brand suppliers and Landmark Wholesale members.
The two-day event took place at The Nottingham Belfry on 28 Feb and 1 March 2018, was the seventh Caterer Connections event and was attended by 32 branded foodservice suppliers, 10 own-brand suppliers and 17 Landmark Wholesale foodservice members.
Les Mohammed, Foodservice Trading Controller at Landmark Wholesale, commented, “The event was our most successful own brand trade show ever, with more than 400 deals available to every member. An amazing effort was made by all, particularly as the terrible weather made it very difficult for some to travel to and from the event. On behalf of everyone at Landmark Wholesale, I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who attended and helped to make the event such a success.”
John Mills, Managing Director of Landmark Wholesale, added, “Now in their third year, our Caterer Connections events are a fantastic opportunity to bring together our suppliers and members to better support everyone’s businesses to mutual benefit and gain, to share best practice and keep Landmark ahead of the competition.
“I am delighted by the success of our most recent event and I look forward to welcoming suppliers and members back for the next Caterer Connections event later in the year.”
The next Caterer Connections event hosted by Landmark Wholesale will take place 5–6 November 2018 at The Nottingham Belfry.
