Don't Take It from Us, Take It from Our Buyers and Brands That Attend Our Events

Meet the buyer event 2022 is a great concept, having a list of specific suppliers that are available to talk to in person at a
specific time allowed me to be more efficient and effective on the day. I got to meet and talk to some new up and coming suppliers plus a few established well-known suppliers which was great. Thank you Tickeat.

American Airlines

As a new brand entering the travel sector, TickEat meet the buyer event gave us the ideal opportunity to meet and showcase our range to major airlines, train and leisure companies. We were able to meet with a number of brilliant buyers and have weeks' worth of meetings in one day. The event was well organised and filled with like-minded people and brands. We would definitely recommend any brand, especially those wishing to enter the travel sector, to attend future TickEat events.

Luke, Doughboys

Attending Tickeat has given us insights into the varied sectors within the travel industry. We now feel we are appropriately knowledgeable to come up with a strategy to enter this channel. On top of gaining this invaluable information and experience, we also had a lovely time networking with peers and customers alike. A fantastic opportunity to directly gain access to knowledge and decision makers. Thank you for the arrangements Heerum!


I was extremely impressed by the matchmaking process; we were set up with buyers that had a genuine interest in buying products like ours.

WestFalia Fruits

A very enjoyable and professional event, great selection of quality suppliers offering products that are actually suitable to our business


Tickeat have successfully introduced a new dimension to the otherwise tired and traditional world of sales and procurement events. Change is key in this industry, and that is true for not only your onboard menus but right the way down the supply chain to how you source and identify new trends. This event tackles head on the sometimes-disappointing reality of trying to meet big clients or source numerous products. Thank you for listening and for promoting this change in behaviour.

MileOne Group

It was excellently organised and very beneficial to meet relevant suppliers in one place.


I've known Heerum for a few years now and find her to be resourceful, friendly and positive. She is the go-to person to learn about new products emerging, especially in the travel sector. She has helped me with bespoke requests for specific snack boxes e.g. gluten free or suitable for kids, vegans etc
Never known Heerum to say no!

Melissa McMinn, Product Development Manager LNER

This was a positive and productive event, very happy with the connections made.


It was a great event, loved the format with a great range of suppliers.


Tickeat was a great show, well organised by Heerum Fleary and her team. The conference was very insightful on how to supply into global travel and all the speakers were interesting about their field. This was an event to learn about brands and products and as well as the travel sector. We will be attending in 2024.


I just wanted to say a huge thanks the conference was brilliant. When trying an event for the first time there is always an element of caution, but I thought the buyers that you had lined up were brilliant and more importantly genuinely engaging with the suppliers and products.
It is probably the best event I have attended in 10 years of doing this.

Nurture Brands

Heerum is a pleasure to work with. Passionate about food, procurement and airlines, she knows so much about the industry.

Adam Sopher - Co Founder & Director, Joe & Sephs Popcorn

I have known Heerum for several years in a professional capacity and have found her to be extremely competent at all times. She has worked with various airlines and our products have flown with those airlines due to Heerum's hard work. I look forward too many more years of working closely with her and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Judy Willis - Owner, Salty Dog

Heerum is one of the most down to earth, realistic and supportive people in my circle, with her years of experience in the sector of travel and buying, she is able to see the challenges and opportunities that come with being a SME business. Heerum is very level headed and I look forward to working with her in the future.
