About Us

The National Catering Equipment Centre is an exhibition space at the heart of the industrial centre in Bristol.

NCEC was opened in September 2017 to meet the demand for an innovation hub showcasing the best catering equipment and products on the market. The specialised 20,000 square foot centre of excellence welcomes industry professionals and catering enthusiasts to come and share ideas and to find out more about the products from over 40 of the industry-leading suppliers.

A dedicated team of brand experts are on hand with product help and advice to guarantee smarter investments. Our high-tech 100m2 demonstration kitchen and training facility is a hive of activity where we encourage food professionals to get hands on with products encompassing everything from catering machines to cleaning solutions. In charge of the kitchen, our Development Chef works with our customers in areas such as brand comparisons, menu development and much more.

With the impartial advice of our knowledgeable team of colleagues, you can be sure to leave NCEC with product solutions specifically tailored to you and the needs of your business. There is also a Nisbets retail outlet on site with the latest displays of knives, crockery and clothing along with an extensive clearance section.
