Innoveat is the UK’s only food exhibition specifically catering for buyers in the travel and leisure sectors. Here’s why it is a must-attend date for your diary.

Why visit Innoveat?
As experts in delivering snacks, meals and drinks to airlines, trains, cruise ships, ferries and hotels, we here at TickEat saw a large gap in the market for a B2B exhibition that focused solely on these industries. After a hugely successful launch in 2016, Innoveat is back even bigger and better for 2018. If you’ve not yet visited the show, here are our most frequently asked questions:

What has changed about Innoveat in 2018?

As we’re fully focused on providing the best visitor experience for every buyer in the travel and leisure industry, the exhibition is almost double the size of last year’s show.

What makes it different from Lunch! and Speciality Fine Food Fair?
Every food and drink product being showcased has been handpicked to ensure that they are a perfect fit for the travel and leisure sectors.
This includes key product differences such as:

  • Size
  • Format
  • Packaging
  • Price points
  • Flavour profiles

How can I justify using work time to see suppliers I may have met before?
The majority of brands at Innoveat will be showcasing new products exclusively for the buyers attending the show. Visiting Innoveat enables you to find both new suppliers and products and talk to the people behind them in one convenient location. We’ve also got four brand new producers at the show this year, read about them here.

What else is on offer at the show?
Every buyer can enter the big prize draw with their business card for the chance to win one of three fantastic prizes. Last year’s prizes featured an Apple Ipad mini 4 and two sets of wireless headphones. There’s free hotel parking available for those travelling by car and every buyer will enjoy a delicious, complimentary lunch and beverages throughout the day.

Innoveat will also be part of SIAL Middle East and we’re working in association with The Mercurys – the most prestigious award in travel catering, worldwide. The 37th edition of The Mercurys will be held alongside SIAL Middle East on 10th-12th December 2018. You can read more about The Mercurys here.
