What feeds your passion?

Stay healthy. Stay strong.
We can’t wait to see you in 2021.

For more than 100 years, the National Restaurant Association Show has been a source of insights, products, and inspiration for the global foodservice and hospitality community. As we are navigating the most difficult situation that our industry has faced, we want you to know that our community is important to us—you are important to us.

The 2020 Show will not take place, but we are here, we are listening, and we will continue to provide our industry with vital tools and information. As part of that effort, we’ve created the new COVID-19 Resource Hub, where you’ll find news updates, relief program details, relevant webinars, and ways to connect with people who share your current challenges.

Already, we are humbled by the creativity, agility and resilience that we’ve seen from operators and industry professionals. Ours is a community unlike any other. Thank you for your strength and your support, and we look forward to seeing you May 22-25, 2021.

As foodservice operators begin to reopen their doors, many questions loom about bringing staff back to work in the age of COVID-19. What are your legal obligations to your work force? What are your staff’s most pressing concerns? If you’ve had to furlough or lay off staff, or if employees are reluctant to return to work, what does that mean for your business? During this live Q&A our panel of foodservice and legal experts will answer your questions and share insights on the current state of U.S. employment law. If you'd like to submit questions for our panelists in advance of the session, you may do so by clicking the button below. You are also welcome to submit questions during the live session via the Q&A panel in GoToWebinar.
