Innovation (10)

In a move that’s virtually become a tradition, the Cedabond Distributor Day is returning to First Choice Group for the second time in 2022. Taking place on Wednesday 14th December, eight of the industry’s leading manufacturers will showcase their products to more than 40 dealers and distributor partners.

Following the success of the previous event held in July and the inaugural event in 2021, this latest Cedabond Distributor Day is a great opportunity for members to meet suppliers, while also hearing the very latest on OEM spare parts from First Choice Group representatives. Split into groups to maximise the networking opportunity, the day will ensure delegates gain a breadth of information and advice from the nominated suppliers and manufacturers.

For the December event, the eight manufacturers include CorsairHobartHoshizakiJesticMKNPelsisSmeg and Uropa. As with previous events, the Suppliers are randomly chosen from Cedabond’s network of more than 80+ brands, due to the over-subscribed nature of the events. The latest lineup covers cooking equipment, ventilation, refrigeration and ice makers, warewashing, coffee machines, pest control and wholesale.

Held from 09:30 – 15:00 on Wednesday 14th December, delegates and visitors will also witness the scope and size of the First Choice Group facilities, including the award-winning training and development setup and the Distribution Centre, stocked with hundreds of thousands of spare parts, accessories and consumables. Lunch will be provided, courtesy of MKN, while discussions on the latest innovations in stock holding and logistical solutions will be provided by First Choice Group.

On the return of the Cedabond distributor day, Head of Marketing at First Choice Group, Julian Fisher adds:

“We’re delighted to have been asked to host the second Cedabond Distributor Day in 2022 and the third in the past two years. The events are always a great success, with eight randomly selected manufacturers and more than 40 members present for a day of networking, sharing ideas and providing advice.

It’s been great to work with Nigel, Donna and the Cedabond team, helping them to make 2022 the best year for the industry’s leading catering equipment buying consortium. Using our purpose-built facilities including our award-winning training and development setup and our dedicated, flexible kitchens, we are proud to have continued to host the distributor days throughout the year.”
