NASDA's American Food Fair joins the National Restaurant Association (NRA) to represent, educate and promote the 945,000 restaurants who sell $660.5 billion in the U.S. restaurant and hospitality marketplace. NRA is the definitive membership-based business association for the restaurant industry. With more than 30,000 members representing nearly 200,000 restaurants, the National Restaurant Association's membership includes tableservice restaurants, quickservice outlets and cafeterias, as well as professionals and academic institutions associated with the industry.

NRA's Restaurant Hotel-Motel Show successfully combines an impressive collection of unique food and beverage products, cutting edge technology and equipment with the latest in restaurant and lodging trends. The exposition works to provide a wealth of education, research, industry relations, government affairs services and the ultimate restaurant, catering and lodging exposition in North and South America. NASDA launched the American Food Fair in conjunction with the NRA Show to give U.S. food and beverage exporters an excellent opportunity to join the 2,100 exhibiting companies and 62,550 registrants of NRA's event.

This event offers four days of networking opportunities and business-to-business contacts all under one roof. Whether you are interested in direct sales or forming relationships with suppliers and distributors, the foodservice professionals that exhibit at this event can help your company reach new markets efficiently.
