Melbourne’s Restaurant 09 has a change of dates to cater for international chefs
The Restaurant 09 Melbourne trade show is moving to new dates in June to better suit the market and attract more international chefs. It will now run from 17-18 June 2009
at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre.
Exhibition manager Michael-William Kelly said the new dates would allow them to work with the overseas chefs and winemakers appearing at The Good Food & Wine Show. “We can now take advantage of the synergies across our shows to add value, as well as provide the industry an event at the right time. June is a quieter month for restaurants and a good time for them to meet with all the key suppliers,” he suggested.
Plans are being finalised to bring one of Gordon Ramsay’s most trusted lieutenants to Australia to appear alongside some of Australia’s leading chefs, sommeliers and restaurateurs in the show’s talks and demonstrations. As a member of Gordon’s original brigade from Aubergine, the guest will be able to provide a fascinating insight into the worldwide empire that is Gordon Ramsay Holdings.
Gordon Ramsay himself will be returning to Australia for The Good Food & Wine Shows in both Melbourne and Sydney and will no doubt take the chance to check on the progress of the restaurant he plans to open next February at Crown. He is also heading to Perth to host a breakfast and charity dinner in June.
The Restaurant 09 Sydney show will remain in its current August 10-11 date.
