mdg partnered with the National Restaurant Association and Winsight LLC to market the National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show 2022. Reuniting the foodservice industry for the first time since 2019, the largest industry event focused on foodservice technology innovations, unique ingredients and emerging restaurant trends attracted over 51,0000 attendees. More than 1,800 exhibitors filled nearly 600,000 net square feet, of which about 30% were new exhibitors. In addition and despite travel restrictions, the Show also matched 2019 international registration, with over 110 countries represented. More than 100 sessions and workshops explored topics like culinary insights, operations solutions, technology strategies, wellness, workforce development and more.
“The 2022 Show was one of the most anticipated events of the year and after three long years, we couldn’t wait to bring the foodservice community back together to celebrate the advancements that drove the industry forward,” said Tom Cindric, President of Winsight Exhibitions. He added, “We’ve really seen this year how important it is to have mdg as a partner. The Show wouldn’t have been as successful as it was without them. ”
