Leon, Starbucks and EAT to host keynotes at lunch!

Henry Dimbleby, co-founder of Leon and a founding director of the Sustainable Restaurant Association, Steve Flanagan, UK marketing and category director at Starbucks, and Sarah Doyle, brand director at EAT are just three of the big name Keynote speakers already confirmed to appear at this year’s lunch! show, which returns to the Business Design Centre in London on 23rd and 24th September.

Martin Hambleton, head of procurement & innovation at En Route International, will also be adding lunch! speaker duties to his impressive CV. He has held senior buying positions at Elior UK, EAT and DO&CO. As a buyer, Hambleton has been a keen supporter of lunch! for years, calling it “the best trade show a buyer can attend”. As a speaker, his ‘Buying Masterclass’ looks set to prove just as essential.

Running throughout the two day show, lunch!’s free business seminars are renowned for attracting a host of high-profile brands and industry leaders from across the food to go retailing and contract catering industry. Past speakers included representatives from Pret, YO! Sushi, Subway, M&S Foods, Caffè Nero, AMT Coffee and the Compass Group UK & Ireland.

The Working lunch! Theatre, sponsored by Magrini, will also include sessions by entrepreneur Tim Hall, creator of healthy fast-food brand Pod, and Richard Garcia, founder and owner of Cook & Garcia. Other new sessions include ‘Lunch as we knew it… A post-recession review of the lunch market,’ hosted by Emma Read, director of marketing and business development for foodservice analyst Horizons.

This essential market update will give an overview of established and upcoming trends in the vibrant food-to-go sector, and look ahead to what’s likely to happen to the market now that the UK is out of recession.
