A new exhibition and conference will launch later this year focusing on the ever-evolving marine catering industry.
MCE will provide an opportunity for hotel operations professionals to meet with the entire supply chain of galley, restaurant and bar stakeholders.
The free-to-attend exhibition will highlight the most innovative products and services available to the marine catering sector.
Co-located with the highly anticipated Cruise Ship Interiors Expo, the inaugural event will take place on June 18-20, 2019, at the Miami Beach Convention Centre in Florida.
MCE organisers said: “With more than 200+ leading suppliers confirming their support in less than six months, MCE has become the platform for marine catering professionals to network with their existing and prospective customers in a highly focused setting.
“With the likes of Almaco, Precetti, Deck-Rite, MKN, Meiko and Welbilt already confirming their support, MCE is set to be the world’s largest, most focused gathering of marine catering professionals.”
The two-day event will kick off on Tuesday, June 18 at 5-7pm with an official launch party to celebrate the industry’s first marine catering event.
The B2B Meeting Service will be held on Wednesday, June 19 at 10am-6pm and again on Thursday, June 20 at the same time.
After walking through a busy exhibition hall, MCE will give attendees the “chance to relax” at an evening reception on Wednesday, June 18 at 4.30-7pm.
James Lloyd, CEO at Deckrite, said: “We are very excited to be one of the founding partners to this highly focused marine event, dedicated to marine catering outfitting and technology.”
