Deals worth £709,000 were recorded at Fairway Foodservice’s Meet the Member event in Tamworth, Staffs, resulting in £1.8 million for its two shows in 2018.
Purchases during the two events were conducted with 39 suppliers, with Unilever Food Solutions adjudged supplier of the year.
Richard Ellison, the group’s marketing & events manager, said: “We have had a stunning 24 months of Meet the Member events, with £3.7 million of deals.
“What’s been very impressive is that, as a team, we have secured the right mix of encouraging sales, as well as introducing new suppliers and NPD.”
The next Meet the Member event is on 12-13 March 2019.
