Why choose our platform?

Our Event formula is simple, the Platform is designed to bring together time restricted Catering, food, beverage and equipment Buyers with Suppliers to define and fulfill new project and supply chain needs.

Based on relevant business profiling; one-to-one meetings between Buyers and Suppliers are pre-selected, pre-booked and confirmed back prior to the event, so everyone arrives at the event Platform fully informed and ready to do business.

We have learned that the Platform method of bringing together people who buy and people who sell, is proven to quickly develop effective business relationships.

We’ll organise your selections into your 2-day business networking schedule, saving you time whilst providing structure and focus.

The Event Platform works because it is so focused and everybody is under one roof. You have specific meetings with companies you choose to achieve your current and future business goals. Our event formula enables you to conduct your business quickly and efficiently, rather than months to schedule in so many relevant meetings amongst normal working commitments.
