14 February 2017

Cannock’s First Choice Group is getting set to attend Ireland’s largest foodservice & hospitality event, CATEX which is taking place in Dublin from 21 – 23 Feb.

With over 10,000 visitors expected, including thousands of people who work in foodservice and hospitality across Ireland, CATEX is a huge opportunity for First Choice Group to secure valuable business for the months ahead.

Commenting on how important CATEX is to the business, First Choice Group Director, John Whitehouse, said: “Taking place every two years CATEX, offers an exceptional opportunity for us to meet with thousands of customers over three days. At the show, we will be showcasing our range of catering and refrigeration spares and gas engineer training courses.

“For a local company employing local people, we have high hopes that significant business will be done at CATEX and we encourage all local people who work in hospitality and foodservice to attend and visit us at stand C15.”

For over five decades, CATEX has provided a vibrant platform to see, taste and experience an exciting and electric mix of undiscovered brands and household names alike. Promising to serve up a show packed full of solutions for business, CATEX will also host the Irish Barista Championships, Irish Cocktail Championships and over 1,000 chefs will be competing in the Panel of Chefs’ Chef Ireland Competitions.

Committed to serving up a great event is IFSA Chairman and Industrial and Commercial Sales Executive with Calor Gas, Mr Larry Smith, commented: “With a new look, and a host of new exhibitors, CATEX is set, once again, to unite the very best of the foodservice industry. For over 50 years, CATEX has retained its place as the biggest, most comprehensive tradeshow for the foodservice sector – always building and evolving.

“Attending CATEX is free so for people from across Ireland who work in foodservice and hospitality, it’s this year’s ‘must-attend’ event.”

CATEX takes place from February 21 – 23 February at the RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin. To register to visit and be part of Ireland’s leading industry event for FREE, please visit
