How to create the best food & drink experience


Leisure Food and Beverage Expo returns to the NEC, Birmingham on November 2nd and 3rd ready to equip leisure and tourism businesses with everything they need to develop their food and drink offering.

Around 250 exhibitors will showcase the latest products and services across the two days of the show. The packed schedule of 150 speakers will include Joanna Harris of Alkmonton Dairy talking about building a successful food brand alongside running a dairy farm. Suzi and Angus Dalton of Dalton’s Dairy will share their thoughts on building a brand on a regenerative ethos. Other confirmed speakers include Jimmy Woodrow of Pasture for Life, Johnny Crickmore of Fen Farm Dairy and Simon Beckett of Becketts Farm Shop and Restaurant.

Leisure Food & Beverage Expo is held alongside a suite of other events being organised by Agriconnect for the first time this year. Together with Farm Business Innovation, Family Attractions Expo, Leisure Toy & Gift and Holiday Park Innovation, it creates an unmissable opportunity to be inspired and equipped to develop your business in 2022 and beyond.

“Whether you are an industry expert looking to make a new investment, a small business looking to pitch to a larger company or are simply interested in branching out, this show is an opportunity for you,” says Nicola Bell, Head of Events for Agriconnect. “The opportunities to network with industry specialists, get free advice from leading experts and discover the latest products and services available to you are second to none.”

The acquisition of the events in November 2021 marked an expansion for Agriconnect which was already one of the UK’s largest agricultural information and events platforms with Farmers Guardian, LAMMA and CropTec amongst its existing brands.

Sanjeev Khaira who leads Agriconnect said: “Taking on these events is an exciting time for us as a business. It enables us to increase the opportunities available to landowners and other rural businesses while extending our event expertise into new areas.”
