Join us for our 2018 Lochaber Walkabout event!
The “Williamson Walkabout” event returns! A trade show event held for the first time in Fort William at the Moorings Hotel in Banavie. You have the opportunity to meet some of our staff and several of our key suppliers in addition to mingling with others from the Lochaber tourism and food and drink sector.
This event will be held in the function room at The Moorings Hotel. Williamson Foodservice will be offering EXCLUSIVE SHOW-ONLY DEALS available only to those attending in person. Doors open at 10:30am and stay open until 5:00pm!
As the Highland’s premier supplier of fresh and chilled foods to the hospitality and retail trades, we work hard on finding products that will allow you to achieve your range, menu and margin goals. These include:
- Artisan cheese & dairy
- Craft beers & fine wines
- Premium soft drinks
- Hand baked cakes
- Tasty fruit & vegetables
- Selected spice, pulses & oats
- Essential kitchen supplies
- Quality catering ingredients
Suppliers and staff attending the show will be on hand to offer tastings, answer your queries and demonstrate how you can make better profit from products featured. The event is likely to be of interest to several of your buying staff including owners, chefs, restaurant managers, bar staff and those in charge of cleaning supplies, so please register all relevant personnel. You are all very welcome!
In addition, there will be the chance to meet the Williamson Foodservice team as they escort you round the show so that you can experience our ever expanding range at first hand as well as meet some of the team that look after your orders.
Hot food and refreshments will be available throughout the day and a meeting area will provide an opportunity to sit down with our staff as well as others in the industry to discuss the challenges and opportunities for the season ahead. We will also have free Wi-Fi available across the show should you need to keep in touch with emails, etc.
We look forward to welcoming you and your key staff on the 25th April but we ask that you take a moment to pre-register yourself and your staff for the event using Eventbrite – see link below.
