More Highlights

Best business discussions are sparked from unique activities

Special events taking place throughout FARE act as jumping-off points for relationship building. Within the 2017 program, there are several valuable ways for you to expand your network, test new products, learn from the success of others, attain new clients and tell others about your business. Check out the list!


FARE’s annual Strolling Dinner just got a whole lot more interactive and progressive! In the Food Pavilion, attendees will walk from one display to the next, sampling new products and enjoying a delicious dinner. Attendees can also enjoy different culinary demonstrations or drop into a meeting pod for a quick conversation. This is the ultimate networking opportunity!


This is the exhibition portion of the 2017 agenda where all attendees gather to uncover the latest in food, beverages and equipment. Just a few hours here, in FARE’s Food Pavilion, can deliver years of important insights, exclusive intelligence and meaningful relationships. You’re guaranteed to “see it first at FARE.”

Check out the new products that will be featured at the show!


At FARE, the fun, excitement and networking opportunities extend well beyond the ballrooms. FARE After Dark is the final evening event of the 2017 program and THE place to unwind after a full day of education and exploration.

Full entertainment details will be posted shortly.


FARE’s Leaders in Foodservice awards exemplifies the cross-channel education and networking that happens at FARE. It is a way to honor different types of operations and bring them together for a best-in-channel panel discussion.

Last year winners include: Cheddar’s, Sheetz & Yale Hospitality
