lunch! 2018

Record line-up at food-to-go trade show

Benefits to be had for wholesalers visiting lunch! event in September

September sees the return of leading trade show lunch! to London ExCel with more keynote speakers than ever before.

Visitors to this year’s show will have the rare chance to hear from some of the UK’s most inspirational food-to-go professionals from across the cafe, coffee shop, convenience and foodservice sectors, talking about the big opportunities, innovations and trends ahead.

For this year a third theatre has been added – dedicated solely to ‘coffee shop keynotes’ – so that attendees can benefit from even more speakers from companies including Starbucks, Caffè Nero, Greggs, Sodexo, Elior and Holland & Barrett.

Over 7,000 industry buyers will attend lunch! and in addition to the speakers and essential market updates there will be product launches, demos and tastings from 400 exhibitors.

Chris Brazier, lunch!’s Group Event Director, says: “lunch! has proved itself year after year to be an essential visit to see what’s new and compare the latest innovative products from leading and emerging brands.

“lunch! 2019 will be our biggest event yet in every way. More speakers, more free business seminars, more essential insights, more exciting brands and, importantly, more fantastic innovations to discover. Every new product launch that food-to-go buyers need to know about – from ingredients to kitchen equipment and counter displays, from food and drink to packaging, payment solutions and business services – will be on show this September.”

Registration for lunch! is free and open now. To register for the show, which runs between 19 and 20 September at ExCeL London, visit and quote priority code LU22.
