Harrogate Speciality Food Show combines first-time and long-standing exhibitors meaning that as a visitor you get to meet producers and taste products that will have never been seen before at a trade show.  We are often the first step from the farmers’ market circuit and therefore it’s your chance to seek out trends in food and drink that will make your shop, restaurant, café or pub a more interesting place to visit.

Harrogate Speciality Food Show Testimonials

  • “The Harrogate Speciality Show has a great energy about it with good quality buyers and very few time wasters. The size of the show is just right for all concerned and it’s an extremely easy setup and breakdown. Basically it’s the best trade show of the year. Next year’s date is already in the diary.”

    Jonathan Curtoys,

  • “The Speciality Food Show in Harrogate is big enough to attract the major buyers but small enough that they can spend time on each stand without worrying they will miss something. We meet more potential customers here than we have at any other trade show.”
