What 2019 exhibitors had to say...

"From it's conception, there was always an expectation about the success of the inaugural PSC Expo 2019. this was mainly due to the support the entire Public Sector gave it. Once the initial communications went out, suppliers and exhibitors started to book spaces; delegates started to register and the interest was high. Some of the notable features for me were the inspired speakers the event attracted through to the very cleverly designed central area, which gave delegates; visitors and suppliers alike, face to face contact with all the key Public Sector bodies and Associations and not forgetting the Culinary Showcase area. The organisers, having listened to feedback from all concerned have relocated the 2020 event to a more central location and I am quite sure this will attract even more suppliers; visitors & delegates. We certainly will be exhibiting there again as why wouldn't you want all of your key Public Sector contacts & customers' in one place?"
Mark Taylor Healthcare Sector Lead, Premier Foods

The opportunity to meet clients and prospects from across all public sector catering sectors made the PSC Expo one of the most beneficial events FDHospitality attended in 2019; the unique combination of attendees, speakers and exhibitors proved to be the key take away for all.  Roll on PSC Expo 2020!

The PSC Expo allows us to connect with a huge amount of decision making individuals across the public sector. Our team enjoy having one-to-one conversations with both end users and chefs, this chef-to-chef approach is so important to our business model. We find this show to be very well organised with so many features to get involved in, including, the ‘knowledge zone’ where leading experts across the sector will discuss key issues and topics, the ‘meet zone’ a central exhibition area housing the key associations that represent the public sector such as TUCO, LACA, NACC & HCA. There is also an interactive demo area in the ’share zone’ showcasing the skills of caterers from across the public sector.  I guess this schedule reasons why this show is supported by the entire public sector!
We’re looking forward to attending PSC Expo 2020.”

 I was pleasantly surprised with the success of the inaugural PSC Expo 2019.  There was a good level of decision makers from a wide range of sectors (covering Healthcare, Education, MOD and MOJ) generating many leads which made the event well worth attending.   I will definitely be attending again in 2020.
