On Wednesday 15th March, valued partners from the Regency supplier and brand owner network came together at the Grand Pier in Weston-super-Mare to showcase their products and services at the annual Regency trade show.
The event continues to grow year on year, and 2023 was no exception with record numbers of Regency members in attendance, plus the entire Regency team. Regency partners from across all sectors and categories spent the day sharing new and existing products, concepts and services, as well as discussing future developments, market and consumer trends and of course, enjoying some delicious food and drink samples.
Exhibitors included: Molson Coors, Carlsberg, Diageo, Booker, Holdsworth, Queensland Bakery, DDF, A David, Total Produce, Bacardi, Britvic, Mars, Walls, Pepsico, KraftHeinz, Proper Cornish, Pukka Pies, CCEP, Polar Krush, Olleco, Tri-Star, Screwfix, Nisbets, Blink, FCC, Waste Connect, Nobisco, Miko and Paddy & Scott’s.
After the event all those attendees and exhibitors regathered for sunset drinks at Revo Bar & Grill, followed by dinner at The Old Thatched Cottage, allowing members and partners to meet in a more relaxed atmosphere, and also to experience more businesses from within the Regency portfolio.
Nick Pursey, Head of Commercial Operations at Regency Purchasing Group comments:
The annual Regency tradeshow is an exciting event within our calendar, offering our partners the opportunity to meet face-to-face with fellow suppliers across the leisure and hospitality sector, alongside our members and our own entire team – including the UK’s largest network of field-based procurement managers.
This year’s event was once again hugely popular – we welcomed a record number of suppliers and brand owners (including longstanding and new partners), as well as more members than ever before, all of which added to the occasion.
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who took time out of their busy schedules to support the event. We’re very fortunate to work with over 170 trusted suppliers, brand owners and partners; it’s fantastic to see this annual event increase in popularity each year, and really demonstrates the value of the strong relationships that have been jointly built. Due to the continued success of this event, we hope to be able to grow it even further next year.”
The date for the 2024 trade show will be released soon.
