It’s Time for the National Restaurant Association Show


Chef Rick Bayless conducts a demonstration at a previous NRA show.

For years The Food Channel has covered the National Restaurant Association Show. It’s one of the leading shows that helps introduce new products, connect industry personnel, and identify the future of food and everything to do with food—the equipment, the suppliers, the services and more. If you work in the industry or just want to attend and sample some of the delicacies showcased, here’s the information.

First, the National Restaurant Association Show will be held May 20-23 in Chicago. They are promising a record-breaking 42 Food and Beverage (FABI) Awardees, including eight FABI Favorites.

While you can sample from the booths in the Exhibit Hall, there are also formal Sessions and Tastings. Plus, they are offering a new Connections space (located in The Culinary Experience) throughout the Show to learn more about the awardees.

The show slowed a bit during the pandemic, but it’s exciting to see it back to full life! Check it out and let us know what you see.

If you haven’t already, register today to celebrate and report on these 42 extraordinary food and beverage products that are breaking new ground in flavor profiles, creativity, packaging, and profit potential!
