Here's The Low Down
2,100 companies will be at the show, along with 60 free educational sessions. They also have pretty cool demonstrations. The year I went there was a guy creating ice sculptures with a chainsaw. I don’t know how this related to restauranting, but it was pretty neat to watch.
Ask your food vendors, such as Sysco or PFG if they are participating at the NRA 2008 Show (most likely they are). You may be able to finagle some free passes or even a fully funded trip to Chicago- I did.
A few things to keep in mind before registering….
