What the Suppliers said:

'TO THE TABLE is a breath of fresh air in the conference circuit. It was apparent that the organisers recruited a tailored group of professionals and hosted the event in the style that anyone in F&B would truly appreciate. I left the meetings with a list of opportunities to pursue as well as friendships.'

Lindy Veitenheimer, Director, Global Sales / Senior Vice President Global Sales, iRiS Software Systems

‘Absolutely one of the best networking opportunities in the foodservice industry.'

Johannes Stalenburg, Vice President Global Accounts EMEA, Institutional, Ecolab Europe GmbH

Glenn Ewart, Export Business Development Manager, Churchill

'The TO THE TABLE event, is an extremely well organised, professional networking event that brings suppliers and the right decision makers together under one roof to explore opportunities for mutual business development. The time it would take to gain appointments with these senior buying teams on an individual basis would be months, if not years, but the TO THE TABLE team enabled us to do it in 2 days, coupled with interesting and innovative industry presentations, giving an even greater depth of return on investment.'

Gordon Buchanan, GTR Sales Manager, Treasury Wine Estates

‘It was a great event that was well organised by the team at TO THE TABLE.'

Audrey Leng, International Senior Executive, Scottish Development International

This was our second TO THE TABLE event and our main reason for attending is the format of 25 minute one-on-one meetings with quality buyers, which creates a unique opportunity for focussed discussions to create opportunities for both buyers and sellers. There is no other event that we are aware of which creates such an effective environment. The organisation of the event is extremely complex but done in a way that almost everything ran smoothly so that buyers and sellers could just focus on what they were there for - meeting new people and exploring opportunities.

Derek Bartosh, Director, Canary Enterprises Ltd

‘The event was very well organized and effective. The buyers were relevant to our industry and all of them real decision makers.'
