The Hospitality Show’s Star Product Awards have reached the final furlong with the ten best new products in the British hospitality industry being revealed.
The final ten were whittled down from scores of exhibitor entries from the worlds of Food & Drink, Catering Equipment, Technology and Design, and will now take their rightful place in a dedicated area for all to see throughout the three day show (19-21 January, NEC Birmingham).
Show visitors will be able to have their say on the ten Star Products in a very special People’s Choice accolade – where they’ll be able to vote via twitter. The winner will be unveiled on 19 January at 4pm on the Business Briefing Stage.
