New dates have been announced for William Reed’s suite of food and drink shows in 2021, following delays caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

The UK exhibitions – including Foodex, Food & Drink Expo, Farm Shop & Deli Show, the Ingredients Show and the Forecourt Show – have been postponed until 5–7 July 2021, a move positively received by the industry.

Held at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham, the shows will bring together the worlds of food development, grocery, manufacturing, specialist retail, wholesale and foodservice across more than 1,000 brands.

Most important of its type

William Reed billed the event as one of the largest and most important of its type in 2021.

William Reed has worked closely with the Association of Event Organisers in developing the industry-wide AllSecure Standards. These are designed to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety and allow its shows to operate effectively and safely according to Government and local authority guidance.

Andrew Reed, managing director for events and exhibitions at William Reed said: “No one is better placed or more experienced to deliver safe and inspiring live events, and no other event in 2021 will have the laser guided sector focus, breadth of exhibitors, content and innovation.

‘Great celebration’

“We look forward to the summer as a time of great celebration, of new ways of thinking, new products, new attitudes and a new start for our industry. We can’t wait to once again welcome exhibitors and visitors to the NEC in Birmingham.”

Meanwhile, it is now less than one month until we reveal the winners of this year’s Food Manufacture Excellence Awards​ in an exclusive online ceremony to be held from 5pm to 6pm on Thursday 11 February.
