Casual Dining event

Casual Dining is back. The ultimate foodservice industry event, co-located with Commercial Kitchen and lunch!, descends on ExCeL London once more. It’s a glittering line-up, promising something for everyone.


Connecting innovative products and services with operators across the nation, Casual Dining returns to ExCeL London on 27-28 September – co-locating with leading sister shows lunch! and Commercial Kitchen. It’s two full days of content, networking, sampling and discovery.

Group event director, Chris Brazier, said: “We’re excited to be planning another show that offers even more opportunities for trade buyers to connect and collaborate. This is the place to learn about everything that’s been happening in the past year. This is a fast-moving sector, so it’s the perfect time to meet with current suppliers and make new ones, witness interviews with the experts and celebrate this industry event. Free registration is now open and we can’t wait to welcome people again!”

Last year, over 8,200 attendees visited – including senior decision makers from Pizza Pilgrims, Pizza Express, Azzurri Group, Big Table Group, Dishoom, Galvin Restaurants, TGI Fridays, YO Sushi, Hawksmoor, The Alchemist, Nando’s, Jamie Oliver Group, wagamama, Harts Group, Wahaca, Bill’s Restaurants, Boparan Restaurant Group and more.

Gavin Smith, MD of Pizza Pilgrims, said: “Casual Dining was a fantastic two days in which I saw the very best of our hospitality industry sharing best practice and challenging the status quo. It was fun, focused and educational.”
