The NAFEM Show Was A Record Breaker

After three days, thousands of booth visits and product demos, and countless interactions between exhibitors and show attendees, The NAFEM Show 2019 is in the books as a record breaking success.

The world’s leading biennial showcase of innovative foodservice equipment and supplies, held Feb. 7-9 at the Orange County Convention center in Orlando, Fla., broke its own records for attendees and exhibitors in an event that offered the most exhibit space in the show’s history.

The NAFEM Show 2019 boasted 643 exhibiting companies, an 8% jump from 2017, which occupied 378,722 sq.ft. of space. The number of attendees coming to see those exhibits rose too; NAFEM reports more than 22,000 registrants, up 2% from the last show
