Hospitality Businesses Encouraged to Take Time Out to ‘View and Review’

Businesses in the catering and hospitality sector are being encouraged to take time out for a closer look at their purchasing needs and supplier contacts before the busy summer season kicks off.
The ‘View and Review’ exhibition, organised by hospitality purchasing consortium Beacon, is intended to give owners, general managers, chefs and bar managers of independent hotels, bars and restaurants the chance to take stock at the mid-point of the year.

They will also have the opportunity to view the very latest products and services available and to discuss their requirements with some of the biggest and best known companies in the industry as well as specialist and niche suppliers.

The event, which is free and open to anyone operating within the hospitality business, will take place at the Best Western Mollington Banastre Hotel in Chester on Tuesday 21st June between 9.30am and 3.00pm.

All aspects of purchasing for a hospitality business will be represented including food, liquor and soft drinks, housekeeping and consumables, utilities, catering equipment and refurbishment.

Attendees will also be able to enter a free prize draw with the chance to win a year’s free Beacon membership worth £770 or one of five of the recently launched Phillips 20HF7462 20" LCD TV’s worth £300, donated by Comet Business Services, the business division of the high street electrical retailer.

Claire Bennett, Marketing Manager for Beacon said: “The summer season is nearly upon us and it’s especially important for hospitality businesses to get their purchasing right at this time of year. By building relationships with good suppliers they can ensure they keep their overheads down whilst delivering quality service that helps to maximise profits.

“Our advice is don’t wait until the summer is over to review your purchasing – a little time now could really pay dividends on your bottom line come September.”
