As we hinted a little while ago, big changes are afoot for Expowest Westcountry and The Source in 2014! Time to put an end to the suspense…
…and introduce you to our new Source ‘super show‘! We are combining our very popular Source and Taste of the West Trade show with Expowest Westcountry to create a combined show that covers the whole of the food, drink, catering and hospitality market.
The newly re-branded Source ‘super show‘ will take place at the Westpoint Exhibition Centre, Exeter on the 5th and 6th February 2014. The show will retain its “Source” identity, but it will incorporate not only the Taste of the West trade show but also Expowest Westcountry. The combined show will have stands for between 300 and 400 exhibitors, and should attract more than 4,000 trade buyers. As the show takes place well before Easter, buyers will have the opportunity to meet all the suppliers they could possibly need to be ready for the season ahead.
Whilst compèring one of the very popular chef demos at Source this year, Chef Michael Caines launched the 2013 South West Chef of the Year competition. The 2013 winner will demonstrate his or her winning dish at the show in February to launch the 2014 competition.
We’re very excited about our ‘super show’ and we’re hard at work putting the finishing touches to all the details. It’s going to be a great show, built on all that was strong from the previous shows, yet ready to move forward and serve the region for all its food, drink, catering and retail needs. We can’t wait to see you all there! 🙂
