Come hear top restaurateurs confess their greatest challenge and what they are doing to stay ahead of the curve.
The New York State Restaurant Association (NYSRA) is dedicated to “Helping Restaurateurs Succeed” and there is no better place to find the ingredients for success than the International Restaurant and Foodservice Show of New York (IRFSNY) Sunday, March 5 – Tuesday, March 7, 2017 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in NYC. This East Coast marquee hospitality event provides restaurant owners, operators and managers with a unique opportunity to find the latest products, services, ideas and connections to grow their restaurants in the coming year.
The NYSRA represents the restaurant and foodservice industry at the state and the local level, educating legislators about the restaurant industry and the issues important to maintaining the vibrancy of this important sector. The Association has a dedicated team of government affairs professionals closely tracking, communicating and mobilizing around key legislative and policy activity at City Hall, the Mayor’s office, the Department of Health, community boards and other relevant City organizations.
At the state level, the Association has a team in Albany working closely with state legislators to advance important new policy and blunt intrusive and overreaching policy. Through the Association’s various communications channels, Members are kept informed up-to-the minute on key issues and developments affecting the restaurant business including the latest news from the Department of Labor and the State Liquor Authority.
On behalf of the more than 40,000 restaurants statewide, the Association has invited state and local public officials to tour the IRFSNY and learn about the great things happening in the restaurant industry and see the economic engine that employs more than 600,000 people in New York State.
Notably, at noon on Sunday, March 5 at the Show in the Culinary Demonstration Theater, the Association will host and moderate a panel discussion on the State of the Restaurant Industry. Come hear top restaurateurs confess their greatest challenge and what they are doing to stay ahead of the curve. We also encourage you to stop by the Association booth #1345 and vote in our poll and be entered to win a $250 Visa gift card.
With the US Pastry Competition, the Japan Pavilion, Danny Meyer receiving the Torch Award and the expanded Taste NY Pavilion highlighting some of NY’s best food and beverage options the 2017 IRFSNY promises a rich and diverse buffet, sure to satisfy anyone with a passion for hospitality and the culinary arts.
