2012 Foodservice Trade Shows – Why are they valuable and which are CHD Expert attending?

31 Jan

The foodservice industry is very segmented – from suppliers, operators, distributers, manufacturers, etc. But one of the best ways that we can all come together is for a trade show! One of the main reasons why we like attending trade shows is because it provides a time and place for foodservice industry professionals to get together, share ideas, and do some business.

Here at CHD Expert, we are fortunate enough to work with all of the different segments of the foodservice industry because we deal with foodservice data.  We are a global foodservice database specializing in the away from home foodservice market. We offer data for all of the different foodservice segments, like commercial (FSR, QSR, Bars and Lodging, Education and Hospitality), non-commercial (prisons, community facilities, religious centers, etc.) and finally, unclassified foodservice data (convenience stores, gas stations, grocery stores, etc.).

We feel that trades hows allow you to talk with people. So much of business is done over the internet these days and as a result, it is important to make an effort to attend these events so that you get the chance to talk to people in your industry face-to-face. In addition, trade shows offers us the chance to not only talk to existing clients, but it also provides us with the opportunity to provide education to prospects, generate sales leads, establish a presence in the marketplace, and it allows us to personally meeting our customers, competitors and suppliers.

We are hoping to squeeze in a few more shows, but here is the list of trade shows and conferences that we’ll be attending in 2012. Check them out:

We hope to see you at one of the trade shows we’ll be attending- and if you know in advance that we’ll be at the same show, feel free to drop us a line and let us know. We can coordinate a time and place to meet. We’d love it!
