London calling: HRC returns for 2022 

Hospitality trade show Hotel, Restaurant & Catering (HRC) is gearing up to return to London this March. The highly-anticipated show will be one of the first major trade events to gather the hospitality and foodservice community together in 2022, following a spate of pandemic-related cancellations and reshuffles in January and February.

“We’ve been thrilled with the support shown to the show and with the engagement from top industry speakers and well-known supplier brands as we prepare for March 2022,” said Event Manager Ronda Annesley. 

For the first time in 2022, HRC will take place alongside the International Food & Drink Event (IFE), IFE Manufacturing, London Produce Show and The Pub Show, bringing together more than 35,000 food, drink and hospitality professionals and more than 2,000 suppliers. 

HRC’s Foodservice section will welcome back returning exhibitors such as Britvic, Essential Cuisine and Major, plus new additions Quorn Professional, Pact Coffee, UCC Coffee, Edmund’s Cocktails and RSPCA Assured.  

This year’s event will also see the introduction of a newly-rebranded ‘Design & Décor’ section of the show, featuring exhibitors such as King of Cotton, Typhoon, T&G Woodware, Geberit, Villeroy & Boch and Drinkstuff.  Over in Hospitality Tech, new exhibitors include Sunday,, Seven Rooms, Slerp and Forth. 

New partners for 2022 include EXP101, which has curated the seminar programme for the Vision Stage, designed by Harp Commercial Interiors, and Tried & Supplied, who will be bringing the first live edition of the Better Hospitality Conference to HRC. Additionally, the event is renewing a valued partnership with Hospitality Jobs UK, who will be running the Hospitality’s Talent Conundrum conference.  

Long-standing partners supporting the show in 2022 include the Foodservice Equipment Association (The FEA), the Craft Guild of Chefs, Compass Group and The Staff Canteen, which will host The Staff Canteen Live, featuring demonstrations from some of the UK’s top chefs.  

HRC will take place at ExCeL London on 21-23 March.
