Organised by the Ice Cream Alliance (ICA), the specialist annual exhibition offers is the largest dedicated show for the ice cream and artisan food industry, and free seminars to help both operators currently working in the sector and those seeking to enter it.

‘Makers and sellers of ice cream are facing serious business challenges in the current economic climate and I hope that the seminars will provide businesses with plenty of ideas, practical help and inspiration to overcome a lot of these challenges,’ said Zelica Carr, CEO of the ICA. ‘This will be the most compelling seminar schedule we have ever put together.’

Meanwhile, the Demo Kitchen, hosted by chef Steph Moon, will showcase recipes and ideas that should be a big hit with customers. This year she will be joined by four-time national champion, Philip Mancini.
