TORONTO – The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association Show — the premiere event for Canada’s vibrant hospitality industry — returns to the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto, March 2-4, 2014.
The CRFA Show is a one-stop shop that helps thousands of industry professionals stay ahead of trends, and see the newest products and services. It’s the flagship trade show for the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association (CRFA), and the biggest event of the year for Canada’s hospitality industry, attracting 13,000 visitors over three days.
At the upcoming show, CRFA will honour coffee machine distributor Faema Canada, and restaurant equipment manufacturer Cambro. Both these companies have exhibited at the show for an impressive 50 years and join an exclusive club. Only six other companies have previously received this honour.
CRFA has also confirmed that the Direct Energy Centre will continue to be the home of the CRFA Show until 2018.
“The 2014 CRFA Show marks the seventh consecutive year we’ve hosted our industry-leading event at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto,” says Carmine Aquino, CRFA’s Chief Operating Officer. “Our first-class show needs a first class-venue. The Direct Energy Centre is one of the biggest expo venues in Canada and provides our hundreds of exhibitors with an excellent space to showcase their products and services.”
“We are proud of our team at the Direct Energy Centre and our ability to provide excellent customer service and facilities as a backdrop to this world-class event,” says Arlene Campbell, Direct Energy Centre’s General Manager of Sales & Events. “CRFA is a long-standing partner and we look forward to a continued successful relationship for another five years and beyond.”
The CRFA Show is owned and operated by the Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association, one of the country’s leading business associations with 30,000 members. Proceeds from the show fund CRFA’s advocacy, research and member services in support of a growing and prosperous Canadian restaurant industry.
