According to Clarion UX officials, one registration will give industry professionals access to all three trade shows and conferences for the restaurant, foodservice and hospitality industries.
“We are thrilled to be bringing three leading events together for the first time so buyers looking for new products and services for their foodservice establishments can find everything under one roof,” said Tom Loughran, vice president for the Clarion UX food and beverage event portfolio.
He continued, “The Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo has been our anchor event for over 80 years and bringing in a healthy food focus, and a specific event for coffee and tea professionals, makes this the premier three-day event for businesses to engage their customers.”
Designed to provide more than 9,000 industry professionals with access to the hottest menu trends, design and decor, top-tier education, special events, culinary demonstrations, and more than 450 of the leading vendors and purveyors dedicated to serving the restaurant and foodservice community, the Western Foodservice & Hospitality Expo enables restaurant and foodservice professionals to gain the experience and knowledge they need to be more informed, competitive and profitable in the industry.
