Publisher sells food interests to William Reed

Organiser William Reed has purchased The Restaurant Show from publisher Quantum Business Media for an undisclosed sum. The acquisition, which includes Hotel & Restaurant magazine and the existing show team, led by director Lorraine Wood, is the latest transaction in the ongoing sale of Quantum's publishing and events assets (Event March).

William Reed events and exhibitions director Andrew Reed said: "I am confident that with our experience and commitment to the food and drink sector we will be able to enhance the value for the visitors. We will work with the existing team and then invest in the show to deliver a truly focused event."

The event takes place from 19-21 September at Olympia. More than 320 suppliers will exhibit and features will include a 100-cover restaurant run by Westminster Kingsway Catering College.
