NRA Show 2017 is largest ever

Were you one of the 66,000 people at NRA Show 2017? If so, you were part of history. The 98th National Restaurant Association Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show was our largest ever, covering more than 695,000 square feet of exhibit space at McCormick Place in Chicago. The NRA Show ran May 20-23, and our Beverage Alcohol for Restaurants event ran May 21-22.

"NRA Show 2017 was a true reflection of today’s restaurant, foodservice, and hospitality industry,” says convention chairman Atour Eyvazian, who owns 122 Jack in the Box and El Pollo Loco restaurants. “Throughout the four days of NRA Show and BAR, the sold-out exhibit floor represented major advancements in products and services that will solve a wide range of real-world operator challenges."
