HRC, part of Food, Drink & Hospitality Week, returns to ExCeL London on 25-27 March 2024 to reunite the hotel, restaurant and catering community for three busy days of networking, learning and product sourcing. 

The show is divided into four specific sections for suppliers in hospitality tech, foodservice, professional kitchen and design, decor & tableware, allowing hoteliers and hospitality professionals to easily seek out a range of products and services to meet their business needs. 

A new addition for 2024’s event is the Light Equipment Pavilion, where visitors will have the opportunity to source products from suppliers including Signature, Contacto and Denby Pottery. 

At the centre of the show, the Vision Stage, designed by Harp Design, will be home to a range of insightful debates, discussions and presentations from business owners and operators, charities, associations and insight partners. 

Olajide Alabi. Brand Equality, Inclusion & Well-Being Partner at Turtle Bay, comments: “I was thrilled to join the 2023 HRC panel, engaging in dynamic conversations with passionate hospitality enthusiasts. Can’t wait for this year’s event to connect and share even more!”

Meanwhile, in the Networking Hub, designed by Design Command, various associations including Arena, HOSPA and the Institute of Hospitality will be hosting networking events for industry professionals. 

Robert Richardson, CEO of the Institute of Hospitality, says: “We are delighted to be partnering with HRC for another year. Working with like-minded partners who strive for excellence and who help support the hospitality industry is a critical part of our work as the global professional body for over 15,000 people within the sector. We look forward to engaging with many hospitality professionals and our global hospitality family at the forthcoming edition of HRC again this year.”

Another new addition for 2024 is an exciting partnership between HRC and Tech on Toast, a consultancy which helps hospitality businesses simplify the way they buy and manage their hospitality tech stack.

As part of the partnership, Tech on Toast will be running three sessions on HRC’s Tech X stage, located in the Hospitality Tech section, and discussing some of the most important trends in the tech sector with leading hospitality and foodservice professionals.

A returning feature of HRC this year is Chef HQ, curated by Chef Publishing, where a number of culinary superstars and leading UK and European chefs will be taking deep dives into various cuisines, dishes and ingredients and sharing their insights into the latest trends and innovations in the modern kitchen.
