We’ve been super busy this month here at Walnut - so busy that we’ve probably spent more time out of the office than at our desks!
This past month has been full of exhibition events, and our team have been jetting off to attend exhibitions in London, Belfast and Hamburg over the past few weeks.
To kick start the month, we headed down south to ExCeL in London to attend the country’s biggest hospitality and catering exhibition, Hotelympia.
The exhibition took place from 5th-8th March, and the Walnut team spent four days in London meeting up with clients, attending equipment demonstrations and listening to seminars and talks from some of the industry’s top professionals.
Next up was our trip to Hamburg where we attended Internorga, one of Europe’s leading trade shows for the catering, baking and confectionary industries.
This exhibition took place between 15th-19th March and we met many German foodservice and equipment businesses, as well as many others from all around the world.
The week after was another busy week, where we firstly attended the Northern Restaurant and Bar Awards in Manchester on 20th and 21st March.
This involved two days of networking with foodservice businesses and discovering new, innovative ideas from some of the most well known food and beverage companies.
Finally, our last expedition of the month was to Belfast for IFEX, Northern Ireland’s premier food, drink, retail and hospitality event.
This event took place at the same time as the Northern Restaurant and Bar Awards and on the 22nd March, so we spent the whole day in Belfast meeting lots of new faces.
The exhibition featured both British and Irish foodservice companies showcasing their products and services, and provided a great platform for British businesses to launch their products into the Irish market.
We’ve enjoyed this month a lot, and it’s been particularly enjoyable getting to travel outside of the country.
We’ve met clients, both new and existing ones, and seen some amazing ideas and concepts.
However, we have to admit it does feel good to be back in the office and catching up with everything that’s been going off while we’ve been away!
Here’s to many more busy months ahead!
