Don't take our word for it; see what our exhibitors said about the 2011 show....
This is our second time exhibiting at Speciality and it marks the anniversary of our launch. Last year our products were taken on by 30 different shops, highlighting its success at the Fair. Returning this year with two new awards, we are hoping to see more key buyers and innovators. We believe that Speciality & Fine Food Fair is the key food show in the market.
Rachel Russell, Sales and Marketing Director, The Cracking Good Food Company
We hadn’t exhibited at the Fair for a few years and we decided to make a return. Our experience of the Fair this year has been phenomenal. Every store buyer that we wanted to speak to has been at our stand. It’s overwhelming to see so many visitors who are enthusiastic about our products, something that can certainly be forgotten when you are spending seven days a week slogging away in the office!

We keep returning to the Fair because we need the awareness. It’s all well and good placing an advert into a trade magazine but it’s much better if we can chat to our customers and they can taste the products. Not only can we build our existing customer relationships, but we can also make new ones. I like Speciality because it’s a small, independent Fair and these are the exhibitors we should be supporting.
Malcolm Ferris-Lay, Authentic American Food Company
We keep returning to the show because it delivers results and brings in new customers from a variety of backgrounds year-on-year. We have showcased our new tins this year, which have been well received.
Damien Blackburn, Grumpy Mule Distinctive Coffee
Speciality is a really nice Fair for us and we feel very at home amongst the other brands exhibiting. For us, our main priority is to build credibility. People have more time to talk at this show and it’s a great chance to talk to people directly. We met some very good buyers last year, which certainly influenced us to return this year.
Paul Lederer, Peppersmith
We’ve been to the Fair several times because we like meeting up with our customers and maintaining our relationships. This year we have launched a new box, which is designed for the airline markets. I’m pleased to say that it’s already had a lot of interest from all sectors!
