Speciality & Fine Food Fair

Speciality & Fine Food Fair is an industry event designed as a food festival. With over 10,000 key figures attending each year, it is a staple in the speciality food calendar. Adrian, our Co-Founder, has been a Speciality & Fine Food Fair Ambassador for the past 3 years, speaking at conferences and events to advise on exhibiting and giving tips on what buyers are looking for.


IFE – the International Food & Drink Event – is the go-to destination for both UK and international food and drink finds. The show gives exhibitors access to the largest number of buyers and suppliers than any other UK-based event. In 2019, IFE welcomed 25,000 attendees from 111 countries. For that reason, Buckley & Beale have exhibited at IFE since our business began.

Lunch Show

Since venturing into the food service industry, we have explored a number of trade shows to exhibit our products. Turns out we didn’t need to look any further than the Lunch Show. This two day event is solely dedicated to the food-to-go industry, meaning exhibitors and visitors are all there with one common goal – to find or show new, innovative products.

The Public Sector Catering Expo was a new food service show in 2019, one which we were proud to exhibit at. The show gathers chefs and caterers from all areas of the public sector – perfect for any business looking to network in that industry. Running across two days, the show boasts an exciting seminar program and live demonstration theater.
