With Meatup now a mere two days away, show organiser Emma Cash is adding the finishing touches to the event. She shares her final thoughts with the blog…

“The team at YPL Exhibitions & Events is really excited as we head towards the forthcoming Meatup show. This is our fourth presentation over an eight-year period and I am personally looking forward to greeting as many people from across the meat industry as possible.

“This is your own exclusive and dedicated meat industry show which we stage every two years and I hope you will join us on 24th or 25th May at the ArenaMK in Milton Keynes to see the latest innovations and products, review trends and meet likeminded people face to face.

“The exhibition has great content this year and our visitors will find a modern, friendly, easy to access venue at Milton Keynes, where our exhibitors are waiting to greet them and will offer a wide range of ideas and inspiration.

“We sometimes forget just how important it is to meet and talk with people face to face, and by doing so review new launches, innovations and ideas first hand in a relaxed environment that can then really benefit business. Personal relationships are still vital and the show is the ideal place to consider new partnerships and reinforce existing ones.

“Of course, Meatup is not just about the exhibitors, as important as they are, it’s also about learning, and talking with others about the challenges and opportunities we all have. Our range of free seminars over the two days offer visitors an excellent choice of topical subjects and a forum to consider these subjects and talk with experts.

“And of course, our craft competitions at Meatup are surely the best in the UK industry and our host in the competition arena, Neil Hunt, will keep things moving, and add a dash of humour and fun to two days of brilliant showmanship.

“Don’t forget your free bacon butty breakfast and a hot drink too if you arrive by 11.00am which is sponsored by Lucas Ingredients – all part of our friendly service.

“We want you to have an enjoyable day as well as a profitable one, so welcoming you in this way is just the start of a visit I am sure you will find useful and worthwhile.”
