2024 Highlights


Jay Monpara, Eticks Limited

Eticks participated first time in the Hospitality Expo. A few quality leads generated in the Expo. Thanks to the organizers for giving us an opportunity to raise brand awareness along with new sales prospects.

Séamus Marnane, Catering Innovation Agency Ltd

Hospitality continues to deliver decision makers continues to deliver positivity and continues to deliver business.

Brian McCann, Irish Contract Beds

Event was well organised and had a buzz

Sarah Murphy, Allegro Sales & Marketing

Great event & we probably booked to large a stand for us but really worthwhile.

John O'Callaghan, AirOPol Systems

I was very happy with the show overall. It seemed to be well managed, had a good cross-section of visitors and a good mix of exhibitors. Thanks to Francis and his very helpful staff.#

Jim Cuttriss, JC Products

I was so happy with the professionalism of the Hospitality Expo staff, Francis thank you for your persistence as at one stage I wasn’t going to commit, then I thought of how successful the previous Expo was. I knew I had a few new Suppliers that customers wouldn’t have seen their products before , I believe this was the key to catching people’s attention. Going through the leads, we have secured at least 10 new customers ,potentially I think we will have another 10. Great Success , I’m a happy Exhibitor x Sign me up for 2026 😁❤

Pj Murray, Ille Service IRL

Thanks for all the help and support in fairness it was well done and organised and staff very pleasant and accommodating.

Arun Oakes, Karcher Ireland Ltd

Thought the event was marketed very well and the footfall was higher than expected. Business managed to get lots of high quality leads which is invaluable.
