The fair, which bills itself as UK’s largest foodservice and hospitality event, will be held from March 5 to March 8 at ExCel in London.
Denby will be on stand 2237 within the ‘Interiors and Tableware Show’, which showcases products and services in areas including contract furniture, tableware, outdoor furniture, lighting and flooring.
According to Hotelympia, in 2016 more than 5,000 chefs and 7,000 professionals indicated that interiors and tableware was one of their primary reasons for attending the exhibition.
Denby said: ‘We think the time is right to re-enter hospitality with our artisan tableware. Research shows that nearly half of us think the way our food is presented is just as important as how it tastes.
‘As trends move away from plain whiteware into more interesting plates and bowls which showcase dishes in both hospitality and in the home, our artisan handmade ranges of tableware are eminently placed to provide a beautiful canvas for all kind of cuisines.
‘With over 200 years of design and craftsmanship, we are experts in colour and reactive all-over glazes that are totally unique and extremely hard-wearing. Our Derbyshire stoneware clay is very strong and fully vitrified which gives it strength, durability and chip-resistance. And we’re so confident that our tableware will withstand use in commercial restaurants and kitchens that we offer a 10-year edge chip warranty.
‘With an extensive range of shapes and patterns (we have over 25 coupe plates) that complement how modern chefs are now presenting their dishes, we already have a customer base that confidently uses Denby in their restaurants worldwide.’
