An impressive number of exhibit industry professionals voted for National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show executive Mary Pat Heftman as Favorite Show Manager of 2009 in the first annual Trade Show Exhibitors Association’s (TSEA) Exhibitors Choice Awards. NRA Show 2009 also received an Honorable Mention in the Favorite Trade Show of 2009 awards category.
Over 400 industry professionals and guests (wow!) came out last night to "paint the town red" at Chicago Illuminating Company and celebrate the winners and nominees. The winners were announced at the TSEA Foundation Gala (very swanky!) held in conjunction with the TS2 show.
This year’s NRA Show and International Wine, Spirits & Beer Event (IWSB) provided tens of thousands of foodservice and hospitality pros from all 50 states and an eye-popping 107 countries with new products and services from exhibiting companies and ideas to help boost business.
As is always the case with us here at Floored!, we want to hear from you! Let us know what makes the NRA Show – the largest gathering of restaurant, foodservice and lodging professionals from around the world (we’d like to think in the galaxy!) – your favorite restaurant and hospitality trade event.
