Birtwistles shine bright at recent Beacon Exhibition in Manchester

Beacon one of the UK’s leading purchasing organisations invited us to exhibit at their recent event at the Manchester Central Exhibition Centre. With over 70 of Beacon’s industry leading suppliers exhibiting on the day, including brands such as Kellogg’s, Dulux, Best Western Hotels and Heineken, we were in good company.

Beacon represent around 2,000 UK businesses with over 160 suppliers across 65 categories in hospitality, leisure & healthcare sectors.

Delegates were given unrivalled access to data and insight from across the hospitality, leisure and care industries. Members of the Beacon team, as well as their sister organisation Best Western, were on hand throughout the day to discuss how customers can get the most out of their partnership and to showcase the products and services on offer for customers.


The event held on January 26th was attended by Mark Cardwell (National Sales Manager) and Jonathan Forrester (Business Development Manager) with Andy Green on hand to help create a memorable display.

The one day exhibition which we attended as Beacon’s nominated supplier of fresh meat & poultry was a very busy and positive one, where we received a lot of excellent feedback on the quality of products and of course the stand itself.

We’d like to thank the Beacon team for inviting us and look forward to many more events in the future.
