Catering Technical Conference 2016

11 October - 12 October 2016

Ceda Technical 2016

The Catering Equipment Industry Technical Conference is jointly organised by CEDA and CESA, the industry’s two trade associations.   The event will provide a focussed approach to catering industry technical and policy issues as they affect the equipment community. This broad based conference will provide excellent business content as well as networking opportunities.

As the conference agenda is focused on important issues, many relating to new and forthcoming standards impacting on project, installation and service management as well as others relating to staff recruitment and retention and developments in Health and Safety, it will be of interest to Service and Project  Management as well as Managing Directors and General Managers of manufacturers and distributors of commercial catering equipment.

At the 2016 Conference speakers and topics will be:

  • Martin Dagnall of Combico will introduce a new Service Engineer Training and ACS assessment facility specially tailored for the catering equipment industry. The facility will offer special terms for CEDA and CESA members.
  • Keith Warren of CESA will update us on EU Policy and Standards and the impact of Brexit.
  • Wayne Terry of BESA (Building Engineering Services Association) will introduce the new catering equipment maintenance schedules that are now part of SFG20, an essential tool for facilities managers, building owners, contractors and consultants.
  • Richard West will address the ‘Today’s Vision – Tomorrow’s Reality’ theme and consider how other industries are applying new technology and new thinking to improve their businesses.
  • Peter Kay of CEDA and Mike Harvey of HETAS will introduce a new Industry Guidance Document on best practice for the safe installation, operation and maintenance of Solid Fuel Fired Equipment.
  • Simon Osborne of Cross Deck will introduce a new initiative to train former armed forces personnel as catering equipment service engineers, a programme designed to help service companied overcome the shortage of trained engineers.
