CATEX announces return as trade fairs set to reopen

CATEX, Ireland’s longest established foodservice & hospitality event is set to be one of the first trade expos to open its doors following the easing of restrictions.

You can visit CBE on stand C17 where we will be showcasing all our latest innovations for the hospitality sector.

FOLLOWING 523 days of forced closure for exhibition and trade fair organisers, CATEX – Ireland’s largest foodservice trade event – is returning to the RDS Simmonscourt, Dublin, in November 2021.

Owned by the Irish Foodservice Suppliers Alliance (IFSA) and organised by Eventhaus, CATEX, taking place from the 2nd to 4th November, is thought to be one of the first business-to-business trade events to open its doors, following the postponement of the original February dates earlier this year.  For event organisers, Eventhaus, this will be the team’s first event in 20 months and is a much-awaited return to exhibitions and trade fairs, safely.


Widely regarded as one of Ireland’s longest-standing trade exhibitions where foodservice and hospitality’s biggest players and membership organisations all come under one roof, CATEX is expected to be the first trade event to run following the removal of restrictions from the 22nd October, with no limits on capacity or requirement for social distancing.

Organisers are confident that CATEX will demonstrate how business-to-business trade fairs can operate safely and effectively, whilst still driving new business to exhibitors and showcasing the latest products and services to visitors.
