The leading event for food service, hospitality and restaurant operations professionals
Atom Business Events’ Food, Drink and Operations event brings together a powerful combination of industry leading professionals, key industry solution providers and global decision makers under one roof.
The event starts with an informal networking dinner, with a day of pre-arranged meetings scheduled for the following day. Suppliers are able to book exhibition stand space in order to more effectively demonstrate and sample their products and we receive consistently great feedback on the format and effectiveness of this approach.
Our next event is on 22nd – 23rd January 2024
Doncaster Racecourse, Leger Way, Doncaster, DN2 6BB

Why it works
Check out this video to hear feedback from our recent FDO event.
During each Atom Business Event, pre-matched buyers and suppliers follow their personal schedules of chosen one-to-one meetings, each lasting 20 minutes – a prime amount of time to make positive introductions and gauge if there are potential leads to pursue.
Throughout the two days there is also plenty of time to continue conversations and visit other exhibitors as well as network with useful industry contacts.
“These events are always very enjoyable for the buyer. It’s a relaxed, fun environment and I always leave with more new contacts than I expected to. It is very well organised and the whole event runs like clockwork, I would definitely recommend it for buyers of Food & Drink.”
“We always find the event to be very well attended by companies that are looking to speak with you. The event is always well prepared with people on hand to help with any questions, overall one of the best events we attend all year and we attend a lot.”
“This event is now a top priority for me – such a great variety of food and drink. I left uplifted and buzzing with excitement from spending time with such great suppliers.”
“The structured itinerary of meetings with suppliers works a lot more effectively than regular trade shows and ensures that you have sufficient time to engage properly without interruption.”
“Adam created a fantastic and efficient event to get strong suppliers in front of relevant buyers. It’s becoming a great network and a highlight to look forward to for kickstarting the year.”
“An excellent opportunity to meet buyers from key target customers in a relaxed, professional atmosphere. Thoroughly enjoyable and very well organised. Thanks”
“An excellent opportunity to meet and understand a number of highly relevant businesses in a time effective way”
“Congratulations to Adam and his team for putting together a very worthwhile event. Great opportunity to meet a wide selection of buyers from throughout the hospitality sector.”
“A very well organised event with some high profile buyers attending”
“Productive, relative and extremely well organised! Great event.”
“Excellent event, well organised and focused. Congratulations Adam and your team”
“The FDO event by Atom was second to none, one I will keep in the diary and look forward to in coming years!”
