Campion has appeared on Food and Drink on BBC2, Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef, Celebrity MasterChef, Professional MasterChef, and the BBC’s One Show. He was also co-host of a major series on Sky – "The Greatest Dishes of the World".
At the event, which takes place on 9 and 10 June 2015 at The Belfry, Sutton Coldfield, West Midlands, Campion will give an insight into what makes a great garden centre catering outlet and how to make your establishment stand out from the competition. He will share anecdotes and ‘his rules to dine by’, helping you to understand better how to give your customers the best experience.
Sarah Dunning, chief executive of The Westmorland Family, will be the second keynote speaker on day two, alongside chef Valentine Warner.
Sarah will talk about the challenges the family business has been through in moving from one site to two and how they have approached sourcing local suppliers, their values and principals and how these differentiate them from other motorway service stations. Sarah will cover how they appeal to both locals and passers-by.
The two day conference, complete with conference dinner and exhibition, and sponsored by Vision Commercial Kitchens, will cover hot topics that impact garden centre catering and will take place in both conference and workshop format. There will be plenty of time for networking, with the conference exhibition providing a great opportunity to meet with catering product suppliers.
