Event City At The Fancy Food Show

Fancy Food Show info

It’s that time of the year for one of the most important shows for our Members, mostly who are in the Hospitality, Food & Beverage, Film and TV industries. The San Francisco Fancy Food Show at Moscone Center.

You will see some of the most interesting products from the show as well as many Product Showcases, Product Reviews, ideas from our very own “Tasting Labs(tm)”, and much more. Of course we will preview many product types with special interest for our Members. Some of these might include – Appetizer Products, Delicatessen items, Baking products, Coffee companies from around the world, specialty products for Restaurants, Caterers, Hotels and Food Service companies.

The National Association for the Specialty Food Trade’s Fancy Food Shows® are the premier marketplace for specialty foods and one of the best shows in the world where retailers, restaurateurs, caterers, food buyers, distributors and others discover innovative, new food and beverage products.

Recently, Fancy Food Shows have been up in attendance levels and have attracted up to 24,000 attendees from every major food buying channel, influential members of the trade and consumer press and other related businesses. These attendees come to see thousands of exhibitors from around the world; most are passionate entrepreneurs who created their recipes for some of the most incredible products and may be at the beginning stages of marketing their companies. These trend-setting businesses showcase more than 250,000 innovative products at these annual Shows.

At Event City we have been reporting on this show since we started our Magazines and Blogazines several years ago, and have found some of the most incredible food products before their introduction into the market, whatever market that may be. We look forward to reporting this year on the many new products we find at this incredible show.
