Putting the 'special' in Speciality

Speciality & Fine Food Fair has been given a fresh new look for 2017, as it cements its position as the UK's leading trade showcase of fine food and drink.

Exhibition organiser, Fresh Montgomery, has unveiled a raft of exciting changes, all of which will continue to celebrate the passion for the food and drink industry's most diverse and dynamic sector.

What's New for 2017?

 It started off as a 'little' show just over 17 years ago. The ethos was, and still remains the same today - great producers, great food and a great atmosphere.

To re-capture the intimate 'Aladdin's Cave' feel of those formative years, and to re-energise the offering, this year's key changes include:

  • Reducing the size of the Fair and curating exhibitors, with only the best artisan and premium producers able to exhibit.
  • Creating the Discovery Zone to showcase the most innovative products launching into the UK market.
  • Merging Speciality Chocolate Fair into the main show - with new tasting trails.
  • Refreshing visitor attractions and enhancing content with the help of Steve Walpole, Will Torrent and the Guild of Fine Food.

Year on year hundreds of producers, and thousands of retail, hospitality and wholesaler buyers, head to Olympia London for the three-day annual gourmet trade show. 

Soraya Gadelrab, Exhibition Director, said: "Recent exhibitor and visitor feedback has inspired us to step back and take a new look at the show. Producers and buyers flock to Speciality & Fine Food Fair not just to do business, but to soak up its wonderful, vibrant atmosphere. It was important to us to retain all of those things that make it unique - whilst injecting a fresh energy to it.  So in 2017, we have made a number of exciting changes with the aim to reinforce the specialist nature of the show, and enhance audience relevance and engagement."
