Visitor Info

Interested in Northern Restaurant and Bar 2007? Well if you work in a restaurant, bar, pub, hotel or other hospitality establishment in the North of England than you certainly should be. 

For 2007 the show is bigger still, and we have more outstanding names lined up for demonstrations in the Culinary Theatre and the Drinks Academy. After the sucess of the new 2006 features - Northern Fine Foods Theatre and The Beer Talks Theatre we will be launching further features. 

Of course Northern Restaurant and Bar acts as a hub and focal point for the whole of the Northern hospitality industry, so we are also hosting meetings and seminars ranging from regional AGMs for the BII and the Restaurant Association to the inaugural Northern Hospitality Awards.

We hope the thousands of you who attended the 2006 show are planning to return to the exhibition to enjoy the growth and progress and for our first time visitors we hope you are excited and impressed by what you find. Come to Manchester to experience the demonstrations, speak to over 300 exhibitors and catch-up with friends and colleagues.
