Visit Milan to attend the prestigious HOST event. Delegates will depart Manchester Airport for Milan on the 19th October and stay at the Holiday Inn Hotel. 2-day HOST event entrance will be included in the Study Tour amongst other visits during your stay that will allow you to experience the food and drink that Milan has to offer.


Who is this for?

This study tour has been designed to cover as many areas of catering and hospitality as possible and to reach staff at all levels from new starters looking for inspiration and skills, to high level management seeking to stay on top of their game. The visits on this tour have been designed to offer the flexibility for staff from any department within catering and hospitality to take away lots of knowledge and information dependent on their personal objectives. Delegates who sign up to this event will be contacted by TUCO Academy in advance of the tour departure to assess their personal reasons for attending the tour and the itinerary will subsequently be adjusted in all areas to be as focussed, relevant and rewarding as possible.

Why should I take part?

The HOST Milano event is an equipment, coffee and food international hospitality exhibition and the leading trade fair dedicated to the world of catering and hospitality. HOST is a point of reference for professional operators of the catering industry and a privileged marketplace for doing quality business. The event takes place every two years, and is a showcase of everything, from successful bars and restaurants, to raw materials to semi-finished products, from machinery and equipment to furnishings and tableware.

  • I can’t see a particular course/training, can you run it?

    If you are interested in receiving training that is not already offered by TUCO Academy, pop us an email or give us a call and we will see if we can source it for you. By going through TUCO Academy you will be able to purchase the training at a subsidised rate and if you can offer the training to other members it will reduce the cost further. 

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Can I request a course or development day be held at my organisation?

    The TUCO Academy has worked hard to offer all training at a subsidised price, agreeing reduced corporate contract rates with hotels etc. - yet still understands the benefits of in-house training. To that end, working alongside the professional trainers, TUCO Academy can arrange for events to be held at your own institution, for no extra cost. 

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Who can use the training with TUCO Academy?

    All professional development events are available for ANY staff in institutions who are members of TUCO, not just employees in the hospitality, catering and commercial services department.

    Does this answer your question? If not, you can contact us directly.

  • Can I book on behalf of someone else in my organisation?

    Yes – the person making the booking doesn’t have to attend.
