More than 70,000 visits were recorded to the first Food Drink World exhibition staged by William Reed, which was held from March 19-22.
Food Drink World is the umbrella event for Food Drink Expo, Foodex Meatex, the Convenience Retailing Show and International Fuel Forecourt Show.
It took place at the NEC in Birmingham and encompassed nine interlinking halls. Food Drink World 06 was a single ticket show that created a complete supply chain event for food professionals encompassing all aspects of food manufacture from field to plate.
Exhibitions director Neil Felton said: “A record number of exhibitors have already rebooked their stands for CRS and IFFE next year and Foodex Meatex and Expo in 2008.”
