The Texas Restaurant Show is the Texas Restaurant Association’s annual restaurant and foodservice show. The largest of its kind in the Southwest, it is backed by TRA’s more than 85 years of industry leadership, and is as bold, unique and packed with opportunity as the Lone Star state itself.
Now in its 85th year, the Texas Restaurant Show dazzles visitors with stunning and interactive displays, state of the science products and equipment, cutting edge technology and the very latest news, trends and advice from dynamic industry leaders. Thousands of restaurateurs, chefs, and industry executives attend over the two-day period and over 400 booths and 300+ companies participate, showcasing everything from artisan food products and craft beverages to linens, mobile technology, security, kitchen equipment, supplies and much more.
Part trade show and part conference, the Texas Restaurant Show motivates and inspires everyone – from first time restauranteurs to industry veterans. Engaging seminars and interactive panels are offered by industry thought-leaders on trending topics and specialty pavilions offer an exciting, diverse and valuable glimpse into the latest products and services that the market has to offer.
Many nationwide consumer and industry trends have their roots right here in the Texas market. The Texas Restaurant Show provides attendees a chance to meet face to face with industry leaders, discover innovative products and practical tools, make valuable connections and discover relevant information not to be found any place else in the country.
Texas remains one of the hottest growth markets for the restaurant industry as a whole, with sales projected to be $52.4 billion by the end of 2016. With over 42,500 eating and drinking establishments in the state, every $1 million spent in Texas restaurants generates an additional 26.3 jobs.
The IACC’s participation has been sponsored by the Italian government’s ongoing Extraordinary Italian Taste campaign, which promotes authentic Italian wines, foods, and foodways.
