CESA Conference to tackle difficult issues

With a theme of ‘Evolving in a disruptive environment’, CESA’s 2018 Conference will pull no punches in reflecting troubled times – but it will also be looking at ways that the food service industry can survive and thrive. 

Simon Jack will act as conference chair at the CESA 2018 Conference.

The conference will take place on 14-15 November and is run in association with Cedabond, ENSE and the FCSI. CESA will soon release full details of the programme and speaker platform, which will be directed by conference chair and facilitator, Simon Jack.   

“We’re delighted to have such a business authority as Simon Jack to run the conference,” said Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA. “He’s a very well-known voice and face, of course, and his know-how, expertise and ability to manage a live debate will be invaluable.” 

Mr Jack is best known as a business presenter on BBC TV and radio, and is now the corporation’s business editor. 

Brexit will no doubt loom large over proceedings and amongst the key presentations will be economic updates and analysis of key industry trends. 

In 2018, the venue moves to the luxurious and picturesque De Vere Cotswold Water Park. As usual, there will be plenty of networking opportunities, including the chance to play the historic course at Cirencester Golf Club. 

The informal dinner will take place on Wednesday 14 November, with the black tie gala awards dinner to follow on Thursday. 

A variety of booking options are available to delegates, from attendance at the conference itself to two-day packages including both dinners and golf or another activity.

The event is open to all food service industry professionals, including equipment manufacturers, suppliers and dealers, consultants and operators. CESA members receive a discount.
