Events Scheduled for August 2021 have been Postponed
SHELTON, CT September 9, 2021 – Clarion Events Food & Beverage Group along with the California Restaurant Association announced today that the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo will be held August 28-30, 2022 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. The event was originally scheduled to be held in August 2021 in Anaheim, CA, but due to the impact of the global pandemic on the hospitality industry, it has been postponed until 2022.
“We look forward to bringing the California foodservice and hospitality industry back together in August 2022 in Los Angeles for a reinvented event for a refocused industry,” said Rita Ugianskis, Vice President, Clarion Events Food & Beverage Group. “We will be working diligently over the next year to develop an event with a focus on education/content, networking/connections and product sourcing.”
The exhibit hall will offer access to hundreds of exhibiting companies offering thousands of new products and innovations in featured areas on the show floor. The event will continue to feature a strong focus on food and beverage products, with the Healthy Food Pavilion and Food Trends Experience Pavilions delivering access to the most sought after categories. The addition of the new TechBytes Pavilion shines a spotlight on the latest technology trends to allow operators to experience the full spectrum of innovative ideas and products. And Coffee Fest Los Angeles will again be co-located, bringing operators and foodservice professionals’ access to the latest specialty coffee, tea and beverage products to elevate their customer’s experience. In turn, exhibitors at the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo will benefit from meeting with coffee shop owners and operators who are and/or want to offer food and expanded product offering to their customers.
The Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo MATCH! Program will connect exhibitors with the most relevant buyers. The appointment program delivers measurable ROI in the form of prescheduled appointments with qualified buyers who have purchasing authority and spend.
