The home of innovation for hospitality & retail.

The IFEX Exhibition is Northern Ireland’s premier showcase of equipment, interiors, technology and food & drink products for the foodservice, retail and hospitality sectors.

The success of IFEX in 2022 was overwhelming. We knew that the first show back post the pandemic restrictions was going to be great, but it surprised all expectations. 

  • Over 200 exhibitors
  • 6500+ visitors

The 2024 show is BIGGER, BETTER & MORE relevant that ever!

With more space added – the 2024 event will be 50% bigger than the sold out show of 2022 with the addition of a separate structure. Plus NEW features will help inspire visitors and offer an additional platform to showcase exhibitors products.

IFEX is a must-attend event that will attract over 7,000 key buyers from Northern Ireland, Ireland & GB. It is an essential platform for you to promote your products to the industry.
