EVENT: What’s Hot? What’s Cool? The NAFEM Show 2013

We hope you make Foodservice Equipment Reports’ Booth #1663 your first stop at The NAFEM Show. Not only would we love to connect, but you can pick up our special NAFEM Product Tabloid. It highlights more than 60 new equipment and supplies introductions by leading manufacturers. Then grab our handy NAFEM Pocket Guide with full exhibitor listing to find your way to the products you want to see up close.

Next stop: You’ll find more than 130 foodservice E&S innovations in the spotlight at the WHAT’S HOT! WHAT’S COOL! new product gallery. This exceptional showcase puts new products on display by category to make it easy for you to target potential solutions for your operation’s needs. Categories include Primary Cooking, Prep and Warewashing, Refrigeration and Ice, Smallwares/Tabletop and Serving, Display/Transportation/Storage, and Technology.

Products bring one or more of these benefits:

  • Aesthetic Impact – provide the consumer a quality product or experience through taste, smell, sound, touch/feel and/or visual appeal.
  • Cost Reduction – lower operator overhead through automation, energy efficiency, total cost of ownership, multiple functions or initial cost through a unique manufacturing process.
  • New Foodservice Application – expand opportunities, (i.e., by opening day parts, market segments or new menu items, or by streamlining speed of service).
  • Additional Benefits – provide additional benefits not previously covered, such as environmental impact or technological advancement.

To locate the WHAT’S HOT! WHAT’S COOL! pavilion on the show floor, refer to the mobile app or show map available on the show website at thenafemshow.org. We’ll include a recap of unique product debuts as well in an upcoming issue of FER.

And just a reminder: Dress code is laid-back for the All Industry Celebration, Sat., Feb. 9 (that means Hawaiian shirts and sandals!) so everyone can just relax and enjoy the private Jimmy Buffett concert. Enjoy the show.
