Sponsorship & Opportunities to Connect

Sponsorship & Opportunities to Connect

Promote your brand at the North's Hospitality Exhibition

In addition to exhibiting, sponsorship at Northern Restaurant & Bar offers a great opportunity to promote your brand to a targeted audience of buyers from establishments throughout the North. Associate your brand with the largest hospitality trade event in the North of England. Where else can you communicate with over 8,000 decision makers and business owners from Manchester, Cheshire, Yorkshire, Merseyside, Lancashire, Cumbria and the North East?

All opportunities allow sponsors to benefit from a wide-reaching campaign, which is an effective way to put your company in front of not only our 7,000+ visitors but thousands more through our extensive marketing and PR reach.

This is the only place to mix with the biggest players in the sector in the NRB Top Fifty awards, be alongside some of the UK's most influential chefs in Chef Live or bartenders in Drinks Live, and be a part of the industry-leading NRB Debate.
