Welcome to Casual Dining
I am delighted to welcome you to Casual Dining – the only trade
show exclusively dedicated to the fast-moving casual dining sector.
Despite a difficult few months for the industry, it always fights
back. It is amazing to see how established operators as well as up
& coming brands continue to innovate and find exciting new ways
to keep the restaurant, pub and bar sector vibrant.
Suppliers are certainly doing their part which can be seen with
our biggest Innovation Challenge Gallery yet, which is newly situated
by the exit of the Keynote Theatre. With over 200 exceptional
exhibitors across three lively levels of the show, there will be
plenty to keep you refreshed and your customers engaged.
We hope you are inspired by the exclusive and FREE
insights from a raft of big-name industry leaders in our Keynote
Theatre (sponsored by Yumpingo). This can be found on the
Upper Feature Level which also contains over half of our brilliant
exhibitors as well as the Craft Beer & Cider Pavilion, Artisan
Spirits Lounge, Innovation Challenge Gallery and VIP Lounge.
We have some big news for next year already. Following extensive
research with leading operators and suppliers, we are thrilled to announce
that we will be moving to our new venue ExCeL London for 2019. We
are excited to bring you even more innovative products, world class keynotes
and networking, combined with that special casual dining atmosphere, in our
new home.
We would like to say a big thank you to Business Design Centre for
being such a brilliant host for our first five years.
Lastly, we would like to say a huge thank you to you, for being here and
supporting Casual Dining.
Enjoy the show!

THE INSPIRATION BEHIND
OUR KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
With so many fantastic industry leaders taking to the stage at Casual Dining
2018, we asked a few of them to share what inspires them every day.
Who or what inspires you to be even better?
“
“
Every day I work with an incredible team of talented people
who inspire me to be a better CEO. My true hero though is
my 4 year-old daughter. She is my inspiration.”
CHRIS HILL, CEO, THE NEW WORLD TRADING CO.
I’m privileged enough to work with a team who are determined
to break down the social barriers, which are sadly so prevalent
for so many. Their passion and commitment means that, with
the help of two incredible charities (Magic Breakfast and
Akshaya Patra), Dishoom has helped to provide over 4 Million
meals to children who otherwise may have gone hungry.”
BRIAN TROLLIP, CHIEF OPERATIONS WALLAH, DISHOOM
“
Having worked in innovation for three years, I get excited by
new technology and trends that emerge. Knowing that nothing
stays the same and there is always more to learn inspires me to
become even better.”
LUISA FERNANDEZ, MARKETING DIRECTOR, YO!
“
To work with brands and teams, from any industry background,
that are able to balance their history and heritage whilst being
forward looking and constantly innovating. To be a business
that is able to blend its past with embracing the fast-paced
world around it and maintaining its market leadership is what
inspires PizzaExpress to continue to be a brand people love.”
ZOE BOWLEY, MD, PIZZAEXPRESS
6
Casual DINING | THE GUIDE
“
Success inspires me to be even better. To be perceived
amongst your peers as a good operator is extremely flattering
and pushes you harder not to fail. I strive to be the best and I
have the hunger to get there.”
BRIAN KEELEY-WHITING, MD, WHITING & HAMMOND
“
My family and pride. I’ve scraped my way to build an incredible
business with two handsome fellows. We’ve faced highs, lows,
middles and ‘Christ knows what’ weeks, but I get up everyday
ready for a new challenge. It’s unique.”
TIM FOSTER, OWNER & HEAD OF BEING AWESOME, YUMMY PUB CO.
“
“
My MD, he’s an inspirational leader that motivates all his
employees and gets the best out of them — this, I believe,
shows in our standard of service and food execution.”
GLENN EVANS, HEAD OF FOOD DEVELOPMENT, LAS IGUANAS,
LA TASCA & LA VIÑA
We live in an age of change and I think you have to bring that to
work every day. Challenge yourself with the question “how do
you stay relevant” and have a healthy proportion of fear that
you can become a dinosaur very quickly!!”
ALEXANDER SALUSSOLIA, MD, GLENDOLA LEISURE GROUP
“
Our competitive marketplace inspires me. I am constantly
inspired every day by new offers, food flavours, drink
innovation, and the great work that some of our longer term
brands do. As a working mother on the Executive Committee
at Mitchells & Butlers, I would also like to see more women in
senior leadership / Exec positions – seeing more women take on
challenging yet rewarding roles is extremely encouraging.”
SUSAN CHAPPELL, DIVISIONAL DIRECTOR / EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE,
MITCHELLS & BUTLERS
“
The amazing new concepts and brands popping up all the time.
You simply cannot be complacent.”
JO FLEET, MD, FLAT IRON
Don’t miss hearing from these industry leaders first-hand

strength to the bread allowing it to hold the largest of fillings. The high hydration gives
a large open crumb making it very light and a 'less bread' eat, meaning that there is an
improved less bread to filling ratio. The
extra virgin olive oil makes the bread
soft. Toasted, the wisps of light bread
give a crystalline crunch adding to the

Ediks Shrubs and Mild Vinegars
U204
Ediks changes how you look at vinegars. These soft, mild vinegars have a surprisingly
smooth taste due to their low acidity. The low Ph level means that you don’t need any
extra sweeteners to mask the acidic flavour of the vinegar, allowing the fresh ingredients
to shine through even more. In
addition to being 100% organic, the
vinegars were developed through a
natural fermentation process; with no
added sugars or fragrances, artificial
colors or flavours. In addition to the
mild vinegars, Ediks also produces a
range of Shrubs Fruit Vinegars.

were fired from their jobs for refusing to vote in the local elections the way their brewery
bosses wanted. Fast forward to today and the investment into making the beer taste
exquisite remains the same and the independent streak and attitude of not
compromising continues throughout the company. The first-class cones of Saaz hops,
natural soft water from ice age lakes underneath the brewery and selected grains of
unique Moravian barley are just some examples of the no shortcuts attitude to brewing.
The extra magic lies in the 102 day brewing process, the only way to preserve the
unique and unmatchable taste of the beer.

A rough climate, an unforgiving nature and a brutally cold sea.
The harsh conditions that make Norway an inhospitable place
for humans, make it perfect for seafood. Which is why, for
thousands of years, the hardy Norwegians who settled in this
tough landscape have made fishing their livelihood. This deep connection that
Norwegian people have with the sea has driven Norway to become a world leader in
sustainable fishing. They know it’s only when the fish are thriving that the people can
thrive. They truly know the importance of protecting the valuable resource of the sea
for future generations to come.
