Event Information

British consumers spent £234 billion on food, drink, and catering in 2019 alone, making it the nation’s largest manufacturing sector. As well as everyday lunch outings and family dinners, consumers spend a significant amount on food and drink when travelling.

With the travel industry slowly recuperating – making its way back to representing 10.9% of the UK economy, as it did in 2019 – the demand for food and drink for travel is set to rise exponentially over the coming months and years.

From aeroplanes to ferries, Innoveat is here to help you capitalise on food and drink opportunities across all travel sectors.

Our ability to do this dates back to 2016, when Innoveat first launched. We focused solely on food and drink within the travel sectors, covering airlines, trains, ferries, cruises, airport lounges and travel caterers. Having grown since then, we have decided to bring the event back to life after 2 years, this time under a brand-new name: NavigATE.

The event mission remains the same, however: to bring together suppliers who have developed products specifically for the travel sector (keeping to specific weights, packaging, price points and quality). We at Innoveat look forward to putting on this event and welcoming back our buyers and sellers – not to mention showcasing the many new, ground-breaking product ranges on offer.

Event Profile

  • Exhibiting

    Are you an existing food and drink travel brand that has recently redeveloped its product lines? Are you a new supplier looking to break into the travel industry for the very first time? Whichever it may be, we are super excited to welcome you to NavigATE 2022.

    The trade show will become available to suppliers for whole 10 days, between Monday 17th January and Thursday 27th January 2022. All exhibitors will be given a secure personal login, providing them with unlimited access to browse, chat and ask for meetings with a variety of buyers also involved in the trade show. For those who require an onboarding session, one will be hosted 2 weeks before the event’s start date.

    For the 10-day trade show, exhibitors will have an individual supplier booth within the platform. In this booth, there will be short informative videos for all buyers at the event to watch. Videos will include key information, including details about product ranges, special offers, website links, introductions, appropriate imagery and contact details – all presented in a neat layout.

    If you would like to benefit from a one-of-a-kind opportunity to meet fellow quality brands and connect with buyers, then make sure to attend the NavigATE 2022 expo!
