The best of Italian Food & Drink comes to London for the fifth year
The 5th edition of Welcome Italia, the event dedicated to the very best of Italian food & beverage, will take place from 13th – 15th October 2017 at the prestigious Royal Horticultural Halls in Westminster, in the heart of London, just a few steps from Victoria Station.
It will host Italian companies looking to enter or strengthen their presence in the British market.
The fair has an innovative, dynamic format, with this year’s edition introducing new elements. This year the Chamber is organizing a trade-only day, open exclusively to professionals in the F&B sector (retailers, buyers, restaurateurs, Ho.Re.Ca. etc), the purpose being to establish and develop commercial relationships. The remaining two days will be open to visitors, last year we saw more than 3000.
Over the course of the three days, exhibitors will be able to both sell and offer their products for tasting.
The venue has an exhibition area of 900 m2, which will hold more than 60 stands. In this space, the exhibitors can feel at the centre of the event and will be able to create a network of contacts.
A focal point of the show will be the Cookery Theatre, where last year famous Italian chefs such as Francesco Mazzei showcased their talent and where both seminars and master classes took place.
The last edition was sponsored by well-known brands such as Italians Card, Nonno Nanni, San Benedettto, Ciao Gusto, Portioli, Alessi and The Italian Chef Federation.
In addition, during the first day of the fair the Ospitalitá Italiana prize will be awarded. It recognises the best Italian restaurants in the UK and their excellent levels of hospitality.
Welcome Italia is the leading event in the UK for Italian Food & Wine. The show is the ideal gateway to access the British market.
