The show, which was relaunched in 2002 by William Reed, will take place from 14-17 March. It will again be co-located with three other food and drink trade fairs - William Reed's Convenience Retailing Show, Centrex's Food and Bake, and Foodex Meatex. The two William Reed fairs hope to attract about 25,000 visitors and 700 exhibitors.
Food and Drink Expo feature areas also include the International Beer Competition, Wine School and Coffee Tasting Pavilion.
There will also be an Ideas to Dine tasting competition for products at the show, which will be judged by celebrity chef Rick Stein.
