Unexpected Opportunities. Unparalleled Experience.

Whether you’re the director of dining services or chef de cuisine, there are two things you need to create exceptional experiences: inspiration and innovative solutions. The 2024 National Restaurant Show offers more of both than any other foodservice event in the industry. For over a century, the Show has been the largest and most trusted resource of professionals involved in every facet of hospitality and foodservice — and it’s where you’ll find the people, products and practical insights that will help you wow every diner who walks through your door. 

 Join celebrated chefs and thought leaders from around the globe in The Culinary Experience as they share their techniques for turning out crowd-pleasing meals.

 Connect with colleagues and peers who understand your perspective as a noncommercial operator and gain effective strategies to navigate today’s business realities in deep-dive workshops and education sessions on hot topics, from workforce recruitment and retention to operational efficiency. 

 If you’re ready to raise the bar on your offerings, redefine “cafeteria,” and boost your bottom line, you belong in Chicago this May when the biggest community in foodservice unites.
