NAFEM Show 2019 offers a world of possibilities for foodservice operators

The NAFEM Show returns to the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. February 7 to 9, 2019. Organized by the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM), the biennial show features innovative foodservice equipment and supplies from more than 500 manufacturers for food prep, cooking, storage and table service.

“At The NAFEM Show, attendees can expect a world where the business of foodservice equipment and supplies takes centre stage,” says Rich Packer, CFSP, The NAFEM Show chair. “Our attendees face real everyday challenges, from saving on energy and water costs, to increased competition in providing flawless dining experiences. When it comes to foodservice, consumers demand a quick, modern and memorable experience. Our exhibiting companies know this better than anyone and are here to help.”

A highlight of The NAFEM Show is What’s Hot! What’s Cool! What Works!, which showcases the most industry-disrupting equipment and supplies. Products selected demonstrate quantifiable operator benefits such as energy efficiency, food safety, labour savings, eco-friendly materials or reduced footprint. This year, the focus is on equipment and supplies that have been tried and proven to make a significant difference in foodservice operations. Selected products will be displayed throughout the show floor in four unique lounges.

“We’re excited to feature these success stories that have fulfilled a critical, unmet need or solved a problem for foodservice operators,” says Packer. “We want to highlight game-changing solutions and the positive impact they had on real-life foodservice operations.”

Other highlights this year include the NAFEM Show Kick-Off Party, as well as the Friday night NAFEM Party. Throughout the show, The Theater will offer attendees the chance to hear presentations from industry leaders about the latest E&S trends and technologies. Attendees can also explore multiple Innovation Lounge around the show floor — each tells an exciting story about how a single equipment or supply implementation improved an operator’s business.
