Simon Rogan to bring the curtain down on The Hospitality Show 2015

The Staff Canteen

Simon Rogan Culinary heavyweight Simon Rogan is set to bring 2015’s The Hospitality Show to a fascinating close at Birmingham’s NEC. At 1pm, January 21, the third and final day of the show, the mercurial chef will take to the Business Briefing Stage, discussing recipes and looking back on his 25 years at the pass.

He said: “What a great way to kick off 2015 – The Hospitality Show is a phenomenal annual gathering of industry professionals as well as those starting their careers in catering. I look forward to my day in Birmingham and checking out the show.”Simon is famed for the multi-award winning L'Enclume in Cartmel, Cumbria. He also runs The French and Mr Cooper’s House & Garden in Manchester and, more recently, Fera at Claridge’s in London.

Simon will discuss his burgeoning empire of restaurants and rise to prominence as one of Britain’s most unique and respected cooking talents. The management of his growing portfolio and unique culinary philosophy should make for a highly absorbing talk.


New products, new exhibitors, new ideas and a new business focus will all be ushered in on a wave of New Year optimism as the Birmingham NEC opens its doors for three days of insight and inspiration. It is the place where the UK comes to network and do serious business, consistently attracting high quality exhibitors and special guests sourced from across the hospitality spectrum.

Toby Wand, Managing Director at Fresh Montgomery, said: “Simon Rogan is one of our most innovative and respected chefs, and, with interests around the country, someone truly representative of Britain as a whole. He will doubtless bring The Hospitality Show to a stunning climax in an intimate, one-to-one interview that visitors are advised not to miss.”

The Hospitality Show takes place at the NEC Birmingham from January 19-21, 2015 and The Staff Canteen Live will be there too, bringing you some of the UK's best chefs.
