Welcome to the latest issue of HoReCa magazine. Focused solely on brands supplying the hospitality sector, this issue brings brands such as Richard Brendon, Bonna, Lifetime Brands Europe and iWas to the table.
Firstly, Ambiente’s Thomas Kastl, who you are all no doubt familiar with, talks to us about the future of the HoReCa hall for the 2024 show, which takes place earlier than usual, running from 26-30 January. See what he has to say on page 38.
Lifetime Brands Europe tell us about their sector-friendly collections, particularly Mikasa Hospitality – see what they have to say on page 32. We also introduce you to the team from iWas on page 48 with co-founder Nico De Wilde giving us some insight into how they turn unwanted items into upcycled must-haves with their glassware of particularly interest to the hospitality sector. You can read more on page 46.
The NRA Show takes place in Chicago this month and we have a preview of just a few of the key tabletop suppliers attending the show on page 50. By all accounts, it’s a great show for anyone serious about supplying to the sector.
On page 52, Valda Goodfellow gives us some insight into what her clients are asking for these days and she is quite delighted to report in a change in pace! And on top of that, we talk with designer Richard Brendon on page 44. Richard is really passionate about making his bone china collection in Stoke-on-Trent so we learn more from him.
