The Catering Equipment Industry Technical Conference 2018

This year’s Catering Equipment Industry Technical Conference, in association with ceda and CESA, will soon be upon us so we suggest you mark the date in your calendar now:

Wednesday 10th October 2018, Nottingham Belfry Hotel, Nottingham

The theme for this year’s Tech Conference is ‘A Spectrum of Opportunities’.

The full agenda is still being finalised but is expected to cover topics such as:

  • TR19: Internal Cleanliness of Ventilation Systems – BESA review and update.
  • Fire Suppression Systems – In view of the Grenfell disaster, even greater emphasis is now being put on fire prevention in commercial kitchens.  This session will update members on the types and uses of fire suppression systems and new developments.
  • Waste Regulations and other updates on relevant regulations and standards.
  • UKLPG COP24 Part 3 – Use of LP gas for commercial catering events, street food and mobile catering.  UKLPG have recently produced this document and will outline the changes that have been made.
  • Ventilation – a seminar to discuss DW172 12 months on and how it compares to the new EU standard EN16282.

There will also be one-to-one surgeries on Gas Regulations, Refrigeration and SSIP as well as a round table discussion session to identify current issues that members face, plus updates on Engineer Training, Recruitment of Service Engineers from the Armed Forces and Warranty Issues.

Once again, Richard West will be hosting the event and delivering his usual thought-provoking observations on what’s happening in the big wide world that might impact on the catering industry in the near future.

We’ll be confirming more details about the Technical Conference in the coming weeks and month, so please keep your eyes on our website, Twitter account and Member newsletter, Connected for all the latest updates. In the meantime, please save the date!
