FEA launches support package for UK exhibitors to NAFEM 2023
NAFEM is back – and so is the opportunity to exhibit with FEA’s UK Pavilion
2023 event offers UK suppliers access to a revitalised North American foodservice market
Having been cancelled by Covid in 2021, the NAFEM show is back with a bang for 2023, at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Florida, from February 1st to 3rd. UK foodservice equipment suppliers wanting to exhibit at the show have the opportunity to access a support package organised by FEA in conjunction NAFEM (the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers).
The last show, in 2019, broke records for the number of attendees and exhibitors – over 22,000 foodservice operators registered for tickets and there were 643 exhibiting companies, taking up nearly 400,000 square feet of space. It’s hoped that, as a revitalised American foodservice industry recovers from the pandemic, the 2023 event will be even bigger and better.
“It is just an amazing show,” says Steve Goodliff, chair of FEA’s Export Group. “This is the premier foodservice equipment and supplies exhibition in the US, and it offers an unrivalled platform for any company looking to access the massive North American market.”
Nigel Bell, chair of Adande Refrigeration, agrees. “Having attended for a number of years, I’ve found that many major current and potential customers are represented from the US and other countries.”
Adande is one of the companies that has taken advantage of the FEA support package at NAFEM in past shows. The package includes an attractive 10ft x 10ft shell stand plus marketing and networking opportunities, offering a stress-free and cost-effective way to exhibit.
To find out more about participating contact FEA’s event organiser, Jocelyn Shawyer, by email, email@example.com. Prices are currently being finalised, but FEA is asking potential participants to register their interest as soon as possible, as space is limited and the number of stands taken will affect the costings. Companies do not have to be FEA members to participate in the UK Pavilion, though those who are members will benefit from a discounted price.
NAFEM is FEA’s sister association in the USA and the two work closely together on a variety of projects. “There is always a lot of competition to get space at the Show, and we’re very grateful to NAFEM for allocating space for the UK Pavilion,” says Goodliff. “I’d strongly advise any UK companies considering going to the show to register their interest with FEA as soon as possible.”
