Florida Restaurant, Food Expos Attract Thousands


Thousands of chefs, industry leaders, owners and operators from the restaurant and foodservice industry networked and conducted business with 400 exhibiting companies during the recent Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show and Healthy Food Expo Florida held last week in Orlando.

The trade show and conference offered a collection of new foods and beverages, equipment and technology, awards presentations, education sessions, and cooking demonstrations with celebrity chefs. The event is owned by Clarion UX and sponsored by the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association.

The exhibit hall offered new products and innovations from 400 exhibiting companies covering 90,000 square feet.

The Clarion UX staff arranged more than 100 meetings for their MATCH! Program, and 100-plus meetings between multi-unit restaurant and foodservice operators with participating exhibitors and suppliers.

“We were pleased to welcome so many industry professionals to the largest gathering for the foodservice industry in the Southeast,  giving them the opportunity to source new food and beverage, technology and equipment products, learn from dozens of industry experts and network with their peers,” Vice President for the Clarion UX Food & Beverage Group Tom Loughran said.  “We thank our partner, the FRLA, our exhibitors, sponsors, media, speakers, and attendees who helped to make this recent event such a success.”

The 2020 Florida Restaurant & Lodging Show and Healthy Food Expo Florida will be Sept. 22-23 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando.
