MEATUP moves into gear for NEC presentation

The world’s biggest supplier of meat processing equipment and machinery, Marel, is just one of the big names backing MEATUP, the only UK show dedicated entirely to the meat industry.

Marel's Graeme Rolinson.

Graeme Rolinson, the UK sales manager said Marel were delighted to continue supporting MEATUP. “We are very pleased to be exhibiting at MEATUP once again, having been at the launch show in 2011. We will have plenty to talk about and see a dedicated exhibition like this as a very useful opportunity to talk face to face with existing customers who visit and to meet new ones. We are one of the sponsors of the Meat Management Awards and staging the dinner on the first night of MEATUP at the Hilton Metropole next to NEC is a very positive move for both events.”

The 2013 MEATUP show will take place at the NEC, Birmingham.

The show is backed by sixteen major trade associations from across the UK and Ireland, and in 2013 the event will be working closely with EBLEX, the largest of the UK’s meat marketing bodies, promoting English beef and lamb, who will be staging a major marketing conference on day two of MEATUP. Peter Hardwick, head of trade development for BPEX and EBLEX said: “We are fully supporting the MEATUP concept as we believe a dedicated event for the UK meat industry is much needed. Not only will we be exhibiting at MEATUP in a significant way, but in 2013 on September 3rd will be using the opportunity to stage a major marketing conference which will feature some top speakers. We are very much looking forward to it.”

Mike Whittemore trade team marketing manager at EBLEX was equally enthusiastic. “It’s good news for the industry that we now have a major communications event bringing all aspects of the trade together face to face. We see MEATUP as a prime opportunity to meet with stakeholders and the meat trade at large, and to promote what we are doing or planning for the trade and to receive feedback. In particular, the opportunity to discuss the on-going development of our upgraded Quality Standard Mark Scheme (QMS) launched earlier this year will be very welcome. Having this opportunity over two days all under one roof at a world class venue is a real positive, and I do hope everyone will get behind the event next July.”
