Good to know that Deeside are talking to me and sure this will be of interest to quite a few of you. Their Press Release has already been sent to our Best Of Welsh & Borders producers and is also shown in full below:
Food and Drink producers, restaurateurs and caterers from across the region are being invited to the North Wales Food and Hospitality Conference, which will be held at Deeside College on 18th July 2012. The conference, which is the first of its kind, will bring together organisations from across the sector for networking opportunities, best practice sharing and business and finance support workshops. Concentrating on a theme of supporting and promoting localism, the event is expected to attract over 150 day delegates, with over 40 local suppliers using the conference to showcase their produce.
The free event which is being supported through European Social Fund project, Skills for the Workforce will offer workshops on Marketing, Customer Service, Staff Development and Selling to Large Organisations, as well as highlighting the different grant and funding options available to small and medium sized Welsh businesses. Deeside College Work Based Learning Manager, Carolyn Preece, one of the event organisers said: “We are delighted that with our many partners, we are able to offer the first North Wales Food and Hospitality Conference at Deeside College. This conference has been developed to support and promote localism with local producers, suppliers and businesses working together to reduce food miles and promote local produce coupled with a unique visitor experience.”

approximately 3.30pm. The event is free of charge, but places are limited and therefore delegates are asked to register their place by phoning Carolyn Preece on 01244 831531, or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
